A prolific American actor with Mexican roots, Emilio Rivera is most widely recognized for his recurring role on the FX drama "Sons of Anarchy" (2008- ). Raised in a rough neighborhood in Los Angeles, he discovered acting while still in elementary school and pursued it over the years, eventually winning small parts on various TV shows during the early 1990s. In 1997, Rivera appeared in the hit action movie "Con Air," starring Nicolas Cage, and continued to turn up in major productions, often as a Latino tough guy. After recurring roles on the short-lived "Kojak" reboot (USA, 2005) and "Weeds" (Showtime, 2005-2012), Rivera found his signature part on "Sons of Anarchy" and later graduated to a featured performance in the low-budget thriller "The Devil's in the Details" (2013). While not a household name, Rivera has proven himself as one of the prominent Mexican-American actors of his generation.
