Two of our favorite SAMCRO members, Theo Rossi (Juice) and Kim Coates (Tig), of the hit FX show “Sons of Anarchy” hit New York on March 13th-15th in support of the Boot Campaign Appearance set for Fox & Friends, Geraldo At Large, AOL Entertainment, AP TV, VH1 Radio, SiriusXM, among others.
Rossi, the back door hacker biker Juice Ortiz, and Kim Coates, aka Clay's enforcer, Tig Trager, play two members of the notorious outlaw motorcycle club in the hamlet of Charming, California.
The series, a brainchild of Kurt Sutter, is currently preparing for a fourth season. Today we scooped the news that actor and educator Peter Weller (Dexter, RoboCop) is set to direct an episode of SOA!
FX brough this biker tale to the TV in September of 2008 and by its third season became FX's highest rated series ever.
After receiving word the “Sons of Anarchy” were taking a tour with the United Service Organizations (USO), the Boot Campaign reached out to FX directly and invited them to join their campaign.
Boot Girl Sherri Reuland said, “It was a quick response….‘Absolutely! When can we get started?’” Now the cast of this hit series and the Boot Campaign are working to spread the word for Americans to “Get YOUR boots on!”
The Boot Campaign is a grassroots initiative started by five ambitious Texas women, the Boot Girls, who felt called to action after reading the story of a former Navy SEAL. They started the campaign in order to provide a tangible way for people to show their support for the troops, and now Americans everywhere are purchasing combat boots. Proceeds from boot sales are donated to partner charities, including the Lone Survivor Foundation, which assist returning veterans dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and varying degrees of physical injuries.
Theo and Kim are just two of the many celebrities joining the Boot Campaign to support the troops. To see the diverse list of everyone who is switching out their regular shoes for a pair of combat boots and to get your own pair, visit www.bootcampaign.com.
