Juan Carlos “Juice” Ortiz, portrayed by Theo Rossi, was a member of SAMCRO, originally sponsored Filip “Chibs” Telford (Tommy Flanagan). Throughout the early part of the series, Juice was seen as irresponsible by Clay Morrow (Ron Perlman), and was given only mediocre tasks.
As the series continued, we learned that Juice’s father was of African-American descent, which lead to Juice being blackmailed by Eli Roosevelt (Rockmond Dunbar) to provide information against SAMCRO toward a RICO case. The club only knew that he was Puerto Rican, had they known he was half African-American, it would be means to expel him from the MC.
Juice had been through so much during his time with SAMCRO, from the blackmail, to a suicide attempt, to being killed while in jail. You couldn’t help but feel sorry for him at times. Take a few minutes out of your busy week to watch this Juice tribute video, and let us know in the comments if you wish things had turned out differently for him!
