Ron Perlman to star in FX series

Plot revolves around a notorious outlaw motorcycle club

Ron Perlman is set to star in FX's upcoming series "Sons of Anarchy."

Kurt Sutter's "Anarchy," from FX Prods. and Fox 21, revolves around a notorious outlaw motorcycle club's efforts to protect their town of Charming, Calif., from drug dealers and local corporate developers.

Perlman will play the club's president and stepfather of the central character, Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam). The role, played by Scott Glenn in the pilot, has been recast after the character was re-imagined as part of the project's shift in a more darkly comedic direction.

Perlman, who next reprises his title role in "Hellboy II: The Golden Army," is managed by Kritzer Levine Wilkins.
