Brenan Hefner was the corrupt port commissioner of Oakland on the FX original series Sons of Anarchy. Played by American actor Lyle Kanouse, Brenan makes his debut on the episode "Hell Followed" in the series' first season. An antagonist in Season 1, Brenan meets his demise on the subsequent episode, "Better Half", in the same season.


Season 1Edit

He was responsible for Michael McKeavey's death, having McKeavey beaten and left for dead after a deal went bad. Cameron Hayes was supposed to kill Hefner but, because he was shot, Jax, Bobby and Opie ended up having to do it. Clay told Bobby to make sure Opie killed Hefner (to prove Opie's commitment to the club) but, when the moment came and Opie froze up, Bobby quickly stepped in and gunned Hefner down himself. Eviqua Michaels witnessed the murder and later identified Bobby as the shooter.
