Another butt-kicker from The Shield is coming to Charming.

EW has learned exclusively that the Emmy-nominated CCH Pounder will join FX’s Sons of Anarchy for a multi-episode arc. She will play Tyne Patterson, a San Joaquin County District Attorney who runs head first into the area’s violent biker ways.

Pounder will first appear in the second episode of SOA, which will return in the fall.

Pounder, who played Detective Claudette Wyms from 2002 to 2008, is the seventh Shield star to guest star on SOA. The others were Jay Karnes, Walton Goggins, Jay Karnes, Benito Martinez, David Rees Snell, and Kenny Johnson.

So what do you say, Creator Kurt Sutter? CBS cancelled Vegas; can’t you find a place for Michael Chiklis too?

Sutter, for the uninitiated, was a writer on The Shield before creating SOA for FX.
