AARP's 16th Annual Movies For Grownups Awards - ArrivalsThe "Sons of Anarchy" spinoff has found its captain. "Battlestar Galactica" lead Edward James Olmos has been tapped to star in "Mayans MC," the spinoff to FX's biker drama.

"Mayans MC" takes place after the events of "Sons of Anarchy," and focuses on EZ Reyes, a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the California/Mexico border who struggles with his desire for vengeance against the cartel as well as his need for respect from the women he loves.

Olmos will play Felipe Reyes, a once-strong patriarch who has been beaten down by violence and hard labor. He wants to bury the past and lead his sons down a lawful, righteous path.

"Sons of Anarchy" creator Kurt Sutter co-wrote the pilot and is directing it, as well. Sutter told The Hollywood Reporter that the spinoff's "tone, pace, storytelling will be unique."
