Wherever you have an ensemble cast, you most likely have a string of bizarre and/or embarrassing early roles played by the actors. Or, in the case of Sons of Anarchy, you have early credits that are polar opposites of the characters they play now. Have a look at the tough as nails ladies and gentlemen of SAMCRO before they grew out their hair and got bugs in their teeth.

Charlie Hunnam

Before joining Sam Crow, Charlie Hunnam was a member of a very different gang when he played Nathan Maloney on the hit drama Queer as Folk.

Ron Perlman

With hundreds of credits to his name, Ron Perlman has appeared in all manner of film, television, and theater roles. But only one of these roles required him to dress like a lion. Before he was Clay, he was a big hit on television as Beauty and the Beast's Vincent, the love interest to Linda Hamilton. And these were back in the days when Hamilton was really hot, so you know Garfield must have had a really charming personality.

Katey Sagal

Of course, everyone remembers Katey Sagal as the undomesticated housewife Peggy Bundy on Married With Children, but it's still almost hard to believe. Sagal's portrays the characters as polar opposites, with one likely to burn the roast and the other to burn a cigarette out on your face.

Maggie Siff

Maggie Siff is no stranger to playing the one that got away. Before becoming Jax's old lady, we all got to know Siff as Rachel on Mad Men where she played hard to get with Don Draper. Of course, she was ultimately powerless to his advances. It's that chin.

Mark Boone Junior

Before we knew his as Bobby, we knew him as "Hey, it's that guy!" And one of his that guy roles was Scars in The Quick and the Dead, where he squares off against a pre-fame Leonardo DiCaprio. He does not end up in the "Quick" category.

Kim Coates

Before serving as Sam Crow's Sergeant at Arms, Kim Coates appeared in a variety of roles. Most memorably was his role as the Drifter in Waterworld. But that assumes you saw Waterworld. Trust me. He was in it.

Tommy Flanagan

Wow. Tommy Flanagan's look really hasn't changed since he appeared as Morrison in Braveheart. Well, I guess the leather jacket is new.

Ryan Hurst

Known best for playing All-American in movies like Remember the Titans, Ryan Hurst has completely switched it up for the role of Opie. Is that really all it takes? Dirty hair and a dusty t-shirt? If so, maybe I'm in a motorcycle club and just didn't realize it.

William Lucking

Hahahaha!! It looks like William Lucking played Shrek on Star Trek: Enterprise before landing Piney.
