Kim Coates, born February 21, 1958 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, is a Canadian actor who played the role of Tig Trager on the FX original series Sons of Anarchy. Making his debut in the series' premiere episode, "Pilot" in the series' first season, Kim plays the role of the current Vice President and former Sergeant-at-Arms of the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club Redwood Original (SAMCRO), Charming, California charter. Extremely fond of women, and a mechanic in both meanings of the word, he was extremely loyal to Clay Morrow, the club's former President, Clay's wife Gemma, and the club itself. He had a strained love/hate relationship with former President, Jax Teller, arising from his use of violence in situations which may not call for it. Playing a recurring role through the series' first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh seasons, his often callous demeanor hides a person with unlikely sensitivity and strong loyalty. He was last seen in the series' finale episode, "Papa's Goods" in the series' seventh, and final, season.

BiographyEdit

Kim's film career 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.

Kim returned to Entourage for it's final season as Carl Ertz, the sleazy movie Producer. His performance garnered so much attention in previous seasons that Ertz's return was a direct request. He appeared in a recurring role on CSI Miami. Other prominent guest starring television roles include CSI, CSI NY, Cold Case, and Prison Break. He has had roles in more than 20 MOW's including the NBC miniseries Hercules, and Disney's Scream Team. These dramatic turns on television have earned him Gemini nominations for Best Actor in a Featured Supporting Role for HBO's Dead Silence and Best Performance in a Guest Role Dramatic Series for The Outer Limits.
