LaMonica Garrett’s Interesting Career Path

Garrett hasn’t always been an actor. Before landing his breakout role as Deputy Sheriff Cane in Sons of Anarchy, Garrett hadn’t acted much. In fact, Garrett had just two television appearances before landing the role as Deputy Sheriff Cane. First, in back in 2002, Garrett was a contestant on the show Dog Eat Dog. He waited another six years before returning to television screens. In his first acting role, Garrett was cast as Jerome in one episode of One Tree Hill called “Sympathy for the Devil.”

LaMonica Garrett was a football player before acting. He first played at a junior college in Los Angeles as a linebacker. Then, he moved across the country to Ohio to play at Central State University. At one point, he was the team’s leading tackler. Despite having workouts with the Detroit Lions and the then-St. Louis Rams post-graduation, he was never picked up by an NFL team.

He moved back to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting and entertainment. While there, he began playing Slamball, a hybrid sport between football and basketball. It also involves the use of trampolines. His time as a Slamball star led to his guest appearances on shows like One Tree Hill and CSI: Miami.

Eventually, he landed his major role in Sons of Anarchy, and his career took off from there. Since then, he’s played in Designated Survivor, Primal, 1883, and different films in the Arrowverse.
