He will play Miguel Galindo, who is the son of Jose Galindo who founded the notorious Galindo Cartel. 

The show has been in the works for over a year now, but it has had its fair share of creative hurdles throughout the pilot process. The show received a pilot order last December, the pilot did not come in as well as FX expected. 

Thus, Norberto Barba has been drafted in to direct the new pilot from a script written by Sons of Anarchy creator, Kurt Sutter.

Sons of Anarchy was one of FX's most successful series, so it makes sense the network would try its best to make this new series see the light of day. 

Mayans MC takes place after the events of Sons of Anarchy Season 7. It was originally said to follow EZ Reyes, who wants to get some good old fashioned revenge on the cartel while trying to secure some respect from the woman he loves. 

It's unclear whether any of those plot details have changed now that the pilot is being reshot. TV Line confirmed at the time that some roles were being recast

Sons of Anarchy Quotes

Something happens at around 92 miles an hour - thunder-headers drown out all sound, engine vibrations travels at a heart's rate, field of vision funnels into the immediate and suddenly you're not on the road, you're in it. A part of it. Traffic, scenery, cops - just cardboard cutouts blowing over as you past. Sometimes I forget the rush of that. That's why I love these long runs. All your problems, all the noise, gone. Nothing else to worry about except what's right in front of you. Maybe that's the lesson for me today, to hold on to these simple moments. Appreciate them a little more - there's not many of them left. I don't ever want that for you. Finding things that make you happy shouldn't be so hard. I know you'll face pain, suffering, hard choices, but you can't let the weight of it choke the joy out of your life. No matter what, you have to find the things that love you. Run to them. There's an old saying, 'That what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger' I don't believe that. I think the things that try to kill you make you angry and sad. Strength comes from the good things - your family, your friends, the satisfaction of hard work. Those are the things that'll keep you whole. Those are the things to hold on to when you're broken.
