All you Rockmond Dunbar fans will be happy to know he's signed up for another network tv gig. The former Soul Food and Prison Break star will be joining Sons Of Anarchy for a multi-episode arc.

According to, Dunbar will play Eli Roosevelt, the new sheriff in Charming. He's described as a formidable, confident and forthright lawman who makes it clear to Jax (Charlie Hunnam), Clay (Ron Perlman) and the rest of the club that things have changed during their 14 months in prison. Roosevelt won't even allow the Sons to be seen in public wearing the club's colors.

Sons of Anarchy is an American television drama series created by Kurt Sutter about the lives of a close-knit outlaw motorcycle club operating in Charming, a fictional town in Northern California.

The show centers on protagonist Jackson "Jax" Teller (Charlie Hunnam), the Vice President of the club who begins questioning the club and himself. The show, which airs on the FX network, is going into its fourth season.

We recently informed you HERE about Paris Barclay joining the show as executive producer and principle director.

    good for him. good actor. the show is only so-so, imo. the shame is that i guess this means no more "terriers," unless that show is going on w/out him.
