In describing Henry Rollins, the tendency is to try to squeeze as many labels as possible into a single sentence. Rollins is many things, says the Washington Post, "diatribist, confessor, provocateur, humorist, even motivational speaker... his is an enthusiastic and engaging chatterer. Entertainment Weekly's list includes Punk-rock icon. Spoken word poet. Actor. DJ. Is there anything this guy can't do? TV Guide has more concisely called him a Renaissance Man" - but if Henry Rollins could be reduced to a single word, that word would undoubtedly be workaholic.
For better than a quarter century, Rollins has toured the world as a spoken word artist, as frontman for both Rollins Band and Black Flag and - without a microphone - as a solitary traveler with insatiable curiosity bypassing the resorts in favor of places like Siberia, Iran, Pakistan, and Burma. When he's not living out of a suitcase, Rollins is constantly at work as an actor, radio DJ, author of more than 20 books, and running his publishing company and record label 2.13.61. Henry currently hosts a weekly radio show on L.A.'s renowned NPR affiliate KCRW, has a recurring role in the upcoming season of the FX television series Sons of Anarchy, and is a regular contributor to VanityFair.com with his Straight Talk Espresso blog.
Henry joins the cast of the FX television drama Sons of Anarchy with a recurring guest starring role in the fall 2009 season.
Henry's previous acting credits span more than a dozen films, including David Lynch's Lost Highway, Bad Boys II, and the upcoming horror/comedy Suck, as well as extensive voiceover work.
