"Sons of Anarchy" Actor Kim Coates Joins Current Sports to Talk "Goon"

Steve Keane

Actor Kim Coates, who many know as "Tig Trager" from the hit FX show "Sons of Anarchy," joins WKAR's "Current Sports" to talk with host Al Martin about his new hockey cinema sequel entitled "Goon: Last of the Enforces" which hit select theaters over the weekend. 

The film career of Kim Coates began in 1991 with The Last Boy Scout. Two Warner Brothers' hits followed: Innocent Blood and The Client. Since that time he has starred in over forty films, including Academy Award winners Black Hawk Down directed by Ridley Scott, and Pearl Harbor directed by Michael Bay. Other films include Waterworld and Open Range with Kevin Costner, Grilled with Ray Romano, Silent Hill opposite Sean Bean, Hostage with Bruce Willis, Assault on Precinct 13, Unforgettable, Skinwalkers, and Hero Wanted.

Coates is well-known for the FX hit series Sons of Anarchy, which went on to air for seven seasons. He played "Tig Trager," the motorcycle club's sergeant at arms who feared nothing, much like Coates throughout his career. 

In 2012, Coates starred in the sports comedy Goon along side Seann William Scott, Live Schreiber and Jay Baruchel, for which Kim is nominated for Best Performance By An Actor In A Supporting Role at the 2013 Canadian Screen Awards. Goon was much lauded by international audiences and critics alike.

The sequel entitled "Goon: Last of the Enforcers" has hit select theatres. Coates joined Al Martin on "Current Sports" to discuss the hockey film, as well as his fandom of the Detroit Red Wings!
