The Golden Globe-winning Sons Of Anarchy star is the latest to join Universal Pictures and Gold Circle Films’ musical sequel Pitch Perfect 2, which Pitch Perfect producer Elizabeth Banks is helming in her directorial debut. Banks welcomed Katey Sagal to the cast in a tweet today. Sagal, who stars as the ruthless Gemma Teller Morrow on FX’s biker drama, will play the mother of new cast member Hailee Steinfeld‘s character in the sequel, which returns original pic stars Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, and Adam DeVine. Sagal has the pipes to warble with the Pitch Perfect kids — she’s currently on tour with her band promoting her latest album. The actress also is featured on NBC’s new series A To Z and returns for Sons Of Anarchy‘s seventh and final season in the fall. Filming on Pitch Perfect 2 — written by Kay Cannon, who penned the original — begins this month ahead of a May 15, 2015, release. Sagal is repped by WME, manager Belle L. Zwerdling of B and B Management and Mann, Gelon, Glodney & Augenstein Inc.
