Theo Rossi, born June 4, 1975 in Staten Island, New York, is an American actor who played the role of Juice Ortiz on the FX original series Sons of Anarchy. Making his debut in the series' premiere episode, "Pilot", in the series' first season, Theo plays the role of a hacker and intelligence officer for the Sons of AnarchyMotorcycle Club (SAMCRO). Playing the role of the first black member of the MC, he displays great technical prowess, but has proven to be somewhat simple minded when it comes to other tasks, often garnering him hazing from the other members. Despite initially serving as a strong ally for the club and its members in earlier seasons, he is later shown to be willing to work against his allies to preserve his spot in the club. This leads to a downwards spiral in Theo's mental state as he questions his decisions and actions, but he can not face being alone and the club is his only family. Playing a recurring role through the series' first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh seasons, his unraveling means he becomes a liability to the club, eventually resulting in the other members not trusting him. After his unfortunate excommunication, Theo met his demise on the episode "Red Rose" in the series' seventh, and final, season.
Rossi was born in Staten Island, New York City, New York. Growing up, he loved to ride dirt bikes. Rossi studied acting at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute in New York where he appeared in several theatre productions in the short time he was there.
