  Summary  

William Lucking is an American film, television, and stage actor perhaps best known for his role as Piney Winston in the drama series Sons of Anarchy.

  Biography  

 career
 Film and television
Lucking's imposing figure and rough-hewn features lent themselves well to roles as tough bikers (Hell's Belles, Wild Rovers, Sons of Anarchy), craggy cowboys (The Magnificent Seven Ride!, The Return of a Man Called Horse), and determined military and police officers (Doc Savage: The Man of Bronze, K-PAX). His film work also includes appearances in The Mountain Men, 10, Stripes, Ladykillers, The River Wild, The Limey, Erin Brockovich, Red Dragon, The Rundown and Contraband.

On television he has had starring or featured roles in Outlaws as Harland Pike and The A-Team as Colonel Lynch. He has been a mainstay on episodic TV for three decades, appearing in such classics as Mission: Impossible, The Partridge Family, Bonanza, Kung Fu, Gunsmoke, The Rockford Files, The Waltons, The Incredible Hulk, M*A*S*H, Knight Rider, Magnum, P.I., The Greatest American Hero and Murder, She Wrote. He has also appeared in such shows as NYPD Blue, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, JAG, Walker, Texas Ranger, The X Files, ER, The Pretender, Profiler, The West Wing, Tales of the Gold Monkey and In the Heat of the Night. He was most recently seen as Piney in Sons of Anarchy.

 Theater
Lucking graduated from UCLA and the Pasadena Playhouse with degrees in both literature and theater. In 1986, with fellow actor and Michigan native Dana Elcar, he co-founded the Santa Paula Theater Center.

As co-instructor of the company's free acting workshop he was admired for his minimalist, “it ain’t brain surgery” approach; a perfect counterpoint to Elcar's methodical style. He served alongside Elcar as artistic director for five seasons. He was Producer of projects including Edward Albee's The Zoo Story, Harold Pinter's The Hothouse, George Bernard Shaw's Major Barbara, Tennessee Williams' Camino Real, and Robert Penn Warren's All the King's Men. Lucking's most recent stage roles include Blue in the CTG/Ahmanson production of Conversations with My Father at the Doolittle Theater in Los Angeles and Dr. Sloper in the Ensemble Theater Company of Santa Barbara's production of The Heiress.
