Ode to Bobby Elvis the “Jew in Leather” of Sons of Anarchy

December 22, 2010 at 3:43 AM EST – If you’re a fan of the FX hit program Sons of Anarchy, then there’s a good chance that you’re a fan of Bobby “Elvis” Munson. But one piece of dialogue from Season 2, Episode 4 (“Eureka”) had a few fans scratching their heads. Clay Morrow makes a reference to the “Jew in Leather,” but not all fans were clear on who he was referring to. The answer?

Robert “Bobby” Munson is a Jewish biker. In Season 1, Episode 2 (“Seeds”), Gemma comments that she needs a “a big Jew brain” to figure out the losses from one of the club’s front companies. Bobby passes by and jokes, “Not this big Jew brain, baby. I can barely count my own fingers.” And Season 2, Episode 3 (“Fix”) opens with Bobby in his Elvis gear singing “Hava Nagila” at a bar mitzvah, while the biker wears a yarmulke over his wig. Other fans with a sharp eye will notice that the outlaw accountant also wears a pendant around his neck, for the Hebrew word “Chai” (life).

So being an outlaw biker may not exactly be Kosher, but what’s not to love about Sons of Anarchy’s Jew in Leather?
