Sons Of Anarchy alum Tommy Flanagan has joined the cast of The Ballad of Lefty Brown, a period film set in 1889 after Congress declared the frontier closed. He joins Bill Pullman, Jim Caviezel, Peter Fonda and Kathy Baker in the film, written and directed by Jared Moshé. Flanagan plays Tom Harrah, a U.S. marshal, and once-great gunfighter who is struggling to stay on the wagon. Neda Armian, Edward Parks and Ryan Lewis are producing. Flanagan spent seven seasons playing Chibs Telford on the FX biker-gang series. Up next for him are Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2 and the Iraq War film Sand Castle. He is repped by Gersh, the Curtis Brown Group in the UK, and Untitled Entertainment.

He also recently joined the cast of the stage remake of Dead Poets Society. Mann, repped by Innovative and Industry Entertainment, will be seen in Warner Bros’ upcoming Kong: Skull Island.
