Sons of Anarchy may not be on Netflix anymore, but one of its stars is still finding success on the platform. Theo Rossi, who played Juice Ortiz on SOA, has a role in the new Netflix show True story. The limited series, which is the top line of Kevin Hart and Wesley Snipes, is currently the No. 1 title on the platform, dominating all other shows as well as movies. The show is about an infamous comedian, Kid (Hart), who gets sucked into a dangerous situation while visiting his hometown of Philadelphia. Snipes plays Kids’ brother Carlton, and Rossi plays a “superfan” of the megastar.
This is far from Rossi’s first Netflix hit. He played the antagonist Hernan “Shades” Alvarez in the Marvel series Luke Cage, in what was his biggest TV role since Sons of Anarchy. He also appeared opposite Carmen Ejogo as the character Billy in the 2019 thriller Rattlesnake. However, his biggest Netflix role to date came in Army of the Dead.
Army of the Dead fell on Netflix back in May and quickly became one of Netflix’s biggest movies ever. Rossi plays Bart Cummings in the zombie-centric robbery movie alongside Dave Bautista, Omari Hardwick and Tig Notaro, among others. When it comes to starring in all of these Netflix projects, Rossi does not seem to mind the fact that viewers might be absorbing this high-quality material on phones or TVs.
“The one thing we’ve learned in history, and I love history, is that you can’t stop progress,” Rossi said recently. Screen Rant. “You can not stop things. You can not just, like, I mean technological advances. Things change. And you can not. Now, of course, I love going to the cinema, you know? Last week I saw a movie It’s great. I also like to sit on my couch and watch a 75 “TV or a 65” TV or whatever Target now sells them. Like Vizio, I think they always make deals about them. And especially for people who have children. Sometimes you can not get in the theater. Something I think is as great as anything else in the world is to provide opportunities. You can go there and you can go there. I see people when I am in New York City watching TV shows on their phone.And I think, “no, that’s not supposed to be in that relationship. It’s bigger than that. You have to see it bigger. “You know, and I can not imagine how difficult it is, because there are people around them all the time.
“Options. We can never tell people what to do. It just is not, we can not. In their consumption of entertainment. In other things we should, but in their consumption of entertainment, we can not tell people, what they should enjoy or what not to enjoy.That was not how this business started.It started with something for everyone.That’s why there is comedy and drama and all these different versions of it.So in that debate believe I that there are two answers that technologically things are going a certain way, no matter how TVs in the homes get bigger, as houses get bigger, as people get in. And theaters are, look, movies still make a lot of money of money. People still go to the movies. And they’re watching all kinds of movies. It’s not just a big blockbuster. People’s watching all kinds of movies. as you are like I’m going to see an IMAX oh but it was amazing to see it I saw Mister Rogers documentary ntaren i mo vies, and it is a documentary. I’m not a documentary freak, but I would like to see it in movies, in the theater, because I wanted to. So I think again, that’s my choice. It was available, but I chose to go to the theater. So I can cry privately. Where no one can see it. “
All sections of True story are also available now on Netflix Luke Cage, Rattlesnake and Army of the Dead. Sons of Anarchy currently streaming on Netflix.
