Charlie Would Love To Guest Star on ‘The Bastard Executioner’

EW.COMOn Saturday, we ran a poll asking which Sons of Anarchy star you thought would like to appear on Kurt Sutter’s latest FX show, The Bastard Executioner.

And … looks like you were right!

Sutter, who was also the mastermind behind SOA, tells EW exclusively that he’s been chatting with none other than Charlie Hunnam (Jax) and Tommy Flanagan (Chibs) about making the trip to TBX set.

But there’s a catch. Or two.

“Charlie really wants to come and do, like, a little arc but, he’s sort of booked solid for the next three years, so I don’t know if that’ll happen,” says Sutter, sounding disappointed. “But we still have Timothy V. Murphy and I’m sure we’ll get some of our Irish dudes that we cast at some point on Sons. It’s hard to schlep over American actors. It’s been primarily British actors, other than all the people that are related to me that are in the show.

“But it’s so funny. I was actually thinking, ‘I wonder if we could have a medieval Venus Van Dam?’” continues Sutter. For the uninitiated, Sutter is referring to the transgender character on SOA played by the brilliant Goggins. “What did transgender look like in the 1300s?”

The Bastard Executioner premieres Sept. 15 at 10 p.m. ET on FX.
