Gino Vento (The Deuce, Bloodline) is set for a recurring role on FX’s Mayans MC, Kurt Sutter’s Sons of Anarchy spinoff, from Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions.
Co-created by Sutter and Elgin James, Mayans MC is the next chapter in Sutter’s Sons of Anarchy saga that was the highest-rated ongoing drama series in FX history. The Mayans were recurring and pivotal players in Sons of Anarchy throughout the show’s seven-year run.
Mayans MC is set in a post-Jax Teller world, where EZ Reyes (JD Pardo), fresh out of prison, is a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the Cali/Mexi border. Now EZ must carve out his new outlaw identity in a town where he once was the golden boy who had the American Dream within his grasp.
Vento will play Nester, the fiercely loyal, childhood friend of Miguel Galindo (Danny Pino), who is now his cold-eyed head security willing to do anything to enforce the family’s rule.
Vento can currently be seen in recurring roles on The Last O.G. and The Deuce. His previous TV credits include The Gifted and The Blacklist, among others. He is repped by Pantheon and Lisa Lax Agency.
