Charlie Hunnam to star in new Prime Video series ‘Criminal’

Actor Charlie Hunnam has signed on to star in the series adaptation of “Criminal” at Amazon Prime Video.  Variety has learned that Hunnam, 44, will play master thief Leo in the adaptation of the graphic novels by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips. Hunnam joins previously announced cast members Adria Arjona, Richard Jenkins, and Kadeem Hardison in the series.

A series synopsis says that the character of Leo is “A brilliant master thief who sees all the angles, and specializes in plans with no guns and no violence. Like a chess player, Leo thinks three moves ahead. Other crooks think he’s a coward, especially compared to his father Tommy, who went to jail for murdering the most feared man in the city, Teeg Lawless.”

Hunnam is best known for starring in the popular FX outlaw biker drama “Sons of Anarchy,” where he portrayed Jackson “Jax” Teller for seven seasons. He also recently starred in the Apple series adaptation of the book “Shantaram,” and played Raymond, the right hand man to pot kingpin Mickey Pearson, in Guy Ritchie’s film “The Gentlemen.” Hunnam’s other TV credits include “Undeclared” and “Queer as Folk,” while his film credits include “Pacific Rim,” “True History of the Kelly Gang,” “Rebel Moon – Part One: A Child of Fire,” and “The Lost City of Z.”
