TVLine: Matt’s Inside Line on Sons of Anarchy

Check out what TVLine’s Matt Mitovich had to share on the upcoming fifth season of Sons of Anarchy after speaking with Charlie on the subject.

Sons of Anarchy | “It’s going to be a very, very uneasy partnership” — that is how Charlie Hunnam sums up the dynamic between Jax and Clay as Season 5 picks up, a short time after SAMCRO’s abrupt change in leadership. “Jax is keeping him around as a matter of necessity, and when that necessity ends… I don’t know what going to happen.” As such, Clay, even as cocksure as he can be, must figure that his days of serving the club in any capacity are numbered, no? “I would imagine that Clay understands that he has a finite amount of time,” Hunnam offers. “And I’m sure he’s going to put that time to very good use, to engineer some reason that he’s essential beyond this period of his actually being essential.”

Charlie Tells TVLine That Season 5’s Jax Probably Won’t Be ‘Crying as Much’

Check out what Charlie had to say about the upcoming fifth season of Sons of Anarchy when TVLine went prodding for some juicy answers.

“Jax has been battling for four seasons about [staying with the club or leaving], and at the end of last year, he absolutely made the decision that he was going to stay,” the actor tells TVLine. “So, energetically, it’s a very different Jax.

“He’s not jumping up and down with excitement and full of gung ho, but he’s resigned to be here,” Hunnam continues. “And if he is going to be here, he’s going to make it work. This is a much more calm, mature, practical and driven Jax, which is going to be really exciting and fun to play.”

Basically, he adds with a laugh, “I don’t think Jax is going to be crying as much.”

Hunnam does, however, caution against confusing his Sons character’s resignation with contentment, noting that his choice ultimately is “going to suck. I’m sure in the back of Jax’s mind there’s still going to be some exit strategy, but that’s not for a long way off at this point.”

Charlie Talks to TVLine about Jax’s Evolution and His Real Stance on Awards

TVLINE | What initially drew you to Sons of Anarchy and the role of Jax?
I grew up in a rough-and-tough neighborhood, so I don’t actually relate to those shows and films about twentysomethings trying to make their way in the world. [Laughs] I just loved Jax. There are a million different dynamics at play within him… This project came at a strange time in my career when I wasn’t getting any [film] roles I wanted… So, I took 18 months off [to work on a screenplay], and then my agent and manager sent me the Sons of Anarchy script. I was surprised it was for a TV show, but I thought, ‘F–k it!’ – and it was fantastic! The idea was so original, the characters were well drawn and the quality of [executive producer] Kurt [Sutter]’s writing was better than the films I was reading.

TVLINE | There was also more depth to Jax’s relationship with Tara.
Maggie [Siff] had an amazing season. That’s one of the richest creative collaborations I’ve ever had with an actor. The way their relationship’s evolved and how close we’ve gotten really translates onscreen; that’s actually one of the things I’m most proud of on the show.

TVLINE | The series has a few more seasons in it … Then what?
I’d like to do it all. I’d love to keep acting. I have a couple of scripts that I’ve sold, one of which I’m writing for myself to star in. Ultimately, I’d love to direct a film. [If I did] more TV, it would really have to be for [cable] or working with someone like Kurt — if not Kurt, directly. Because I would do another Kurt Sutter show.

TVLINE | When all is said and done, how would you like Sons of Anarchy to be remembered?
As a really smart, original, gritty drama… In same way people think of The Sopranos or Deadwood — with reverence.

Ask Ausiello: How Does Jax’ New Position Effect Gemma?

Check out what Ausiello had to say about Sons of Anarchy in his latest ‘Ask Ausiello’ column.

Question: Do you know anything about Season 5 of Sons of Anarchy? —Elyse
Ausiello:
I know that Clay might not be the only one facing an uncertain future with SAMCRO when the action picks up several weeks after the transition of power that landed Jax at the head of the table. Rather, his old lady Gemma, as evidenced by the look on her face at the close of the Season 4 finale, should also have cause for concern. “I don’t think she manipulates Jax in the same way she manipulates Clay,” Charlie Hunnam told us at FX’s upfront party. “There’s a dynamic inherent in every mother-and-son relationship, where after a while the son is going to say, ‘Mom, you ain’t running my life anymore.’ So I think she definitely has a good reason to be nervous in terms of her position in the club.”
