'Mayans MC' Star JD Pardo Reveals How He Got His Role

JD Pardo and Sarah Bolger hit the red carpet at the panel for Mayans MC during the final day of 2018 Comic-Con on Sunday (July 22) in San Diego, Calif.

Some of the other cast members at the panel included Clayton Cardenas, Edward James Olmos, Michael Irby, Carla Baratta, Antonio Jaramillo, Raoul Max Trujillo, Richard Cabral, Danny Pino, Emilio Rivera, Frankie Loyal, Vincent Vargas, and Joseph Lucero.

JD and series creator Kurt Sutter opened up during the panel about how he was cast in the lead role.

“I saw his read with a couple other actors and sort of knew what I was looking for,” Kurt said (via Variety). “It was one of those things where I knew what I wasn’t looking for and then I saw JD read and there was something interesting and commanding in what he was doing.“

“We had this honest conversation where he told me what he wanted the character to be,” JD added. “I told [Kurt], ‘If you give me this opportunity I will not let you down, I will not let FX down, I will not let the fans down.’”

Mayans MC is a spin-off of the beloved series Sons of Anarchy.

FYI: JD is wearing Aquatalia shoes.

'Sons of Anarchy' Spinoff 'Mayans MC' Gets FX Series Order

A Sons of Anarchy spinoff series, Mayans MC, is coming to FX this year!

The network announced a 10-episode first season for Kurt Sutter‘s follow-up to the biker drama on Friday (January 5).

Mayans MC will premiere in either the summer or fall of 2018, marking the 10th anniversary of the original series.

Mayans MC is “set in a post-Jax Teller world, where EZ Reyes (J.D. Pardo), fresh out of prison, is a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the Cali/Mexi border,” according to THR. “Now EZ must carve out his new outlaw identity in a town where he once was the golden boy who had the American dream within his grasp.”

Kurt Sutter is a master storyteller and Mayans MC has the raw energy and intensity that are hallmarks of his signature style,” said FX president of original programming Nick Grad. “Thanks to Kurt, co-creator Elgin James and this amazing cast, Mayans MC builds on the legacy of Sons of Anarchy, taking it in a thrilling new direction that we can’t wait for the world to see.”

The cast will also include Edward James Olmos, Sarah Bolger, Clayton Cardenas, Richard Cabral, Michael Irby, Raoul Trujillo, Antonio Jaramillo, and Carla Baratta.

Sons of Anarchy wrapped its seven-season run back in 2014.
