A Sons of Anarchy fan favorite is headed to lockup.

Actor Theo Rossi, who plays extravagantly tatted SAMCRO tech specialist Juan Carlos “Juice” Ortiz on the FX hit, will guest-star on the tenth episode of Fox’s Alcatraz. The Rossi plays Sonny, a business man with a dark side, who became ultra-violent during his stint 50 years ago at the infamous prison.

Alcatraz is off to a promising start: Its two-hour debut on Monday was seen by 10 million viewers and had a 3.3 adult demo rating. Here’s Sandra Gonzalez’s interview with executive producer Jack Bender about what the show has in store for us this season (aside from a menacing Rossi).
