"Sons of Anarchy" Spinoff "Mayans MC" Adds Edward James Olmos

14 February 2017 10:27 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

FX and Kurt Sutter’s upcoming drama pilot Mayans MC, a Latino-centric spinoff set within the Sons of Anarchy universe, has located its first star: Edward James Olmos.

Per Deadline, James Olmos has come on board to play the part of Felipe Reyes, a former Mexican patriarch who is now a shadow of his former self. Aiming to keep his life – and more importantly, his son – on the straight and narrow, Mayans MC will chronicle Reyes’ day-to-day struggles as he tries to stay on the right side of the law. And if the core SOA saga is any indication, such an endeavor will be much more difficult than it seems.

Co-created by Sutter and writing partner Elgin James (Little Birds), Mayans MC will largely revolve around Ez Reyes, a young prospect of the Mayan Motorcycle Club, based on the border between California and Mexico. Plotting vengeance against the cartel, FX »

Ok Tvd fans, you are going to want to play the video below over and over and over and over again.

The words are so simple, and yet it's impossible to get them out of your head once you hear them. 

I'm not going to ruin the moment for you. 

But wait!! 

That's not all the news we have today.

The next Bachelorette will be announced tomorrow on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and it's going to be Rachel Lindsay!

Rachel is a contestant on the current installment of The Bachelor, and while (spoiler alert) it kind of takes her out of the running for Nick's heart, it also puts her into a pretty amazing place within the franchise.

Her installment of The Bachelorette will be the first time a black woman or man has been vying for the attention of all of the singles in the 33 seasons of both franchises combined. »

Lowriders Trailer: Eva Longoria Takes a Ride Through East L.A.

27 January 2017 2:15 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The eclectic car culture of Los Angeles is put on display in the first trailer for Blumhouse Tilt's Lowriders, arriving in theaters nationwide May 12. Lowriders is set against the vibrant backdrop of East La's near-spiritual car culture and follows the story of Danny (Gabriel Chavarria), a talented young street artist caught between the lowrider world inhabited by his old-school father (Demian Bichir) and ex-con brother (Theo Rossi), and the adrenaline-fueled outlet that defines his self-expression. The project has been in the works for several years, with Luke Cage showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker writing an early version of the script alongside Elgin James. Justin Tipping and Joshua Beirne-Golden, the writers behind last year's Kicks, wrote the most recent version of the script, for director Ricardo de Montreuil.

While this L.A. drama may have a plum summer release date, it will certainly have its work cut out for it, in the »
