Kurt Sutter was never shy about showing off Charlie Hunnam’s shirtless body on Sons of Anarchy, and that has not changed for Mayans MC. Halfway through the first season of the SOA spin-off, and JD Pardo has already gone grown fond of showing off his pristine abs for the cameras – and fans are not complaining.
Few lead men in television have shown more skin than Hunnam. Throughout the seven seasons on the show, Hunnam had more shirtless scenes and butt shots than we can even count.
In fact, seeing Hunnam without a shirt was so commonplace that it became a character trait for Jax Teller. Sutter continued that shameless promotion of the male form with JD Pardo’s EZ Reyes on Mayans.
According to Decider, Pardo has already gone shirtless a few times on the spin-off, including a scene where he showed off his incredible abs for all fans to enjoy.
We have not seen Pardo’s rear end yet, but given Sutter’s history with Hunnam, it is only a matter of time before he sheds more clothes for the cameras.
As far as Pardo is concerned, he fully understands what SOA fans expect of him and is willing to do whatever it takes to fill Hunnam’s shoes. In a recent interview, Pardo explained how he understands the challenges of leading a franchise that has such a massive fan base and is determined to represent the cast and crew to the best of his ability.
Based on how things have gone so far, it is safe to say Pardo is off to a great start.
“I think about the Sons of Anarchy fans. I owe it to them, 100%, to do my best and to give them all of me,” Pardo explained.
Season 1 of Mayans MC continues Tuesday nights on FX.
