Rockmond Dunbar Snags Role on TV Series ‘Sons of Anarchy’

Rockmond Dunbar of ‘Soul Food’ and ‘Prison Break’ fame will return to the small screen in a big role on the FX series Sons of Anarchy.

Dunbar will play Eli Roosevelt, the new sheriff in town. 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.

Dunbar recently finished shooting the new film Highland Park with Danny Glover, Kimberly Elise, and Naturi Naughton.

The new season of Sons of Anarchy airs this fall on FX.
