Diego Klattenhoff, who co-stars on Howard Gordon’s new Showtime series “Homeland,” has joined the cast of Guillermo del Toro’s “Pacific Rim,” an epic actioner that pits invading monsters against robots.
Charlie Hunnam and Idris Elba star alongside Charlie Day, Willem Dafoe, Rinko Kikuchi, Max Martini, Rob Kazinsky and Clifton Collins Jr.
Klattenhoff’s role is being kept under wraps, though he is expected to appear in the film’s opening scene.
Travis Beacham’s script is set in 2025, the 12th year of a war against alien creatures who reside in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Story finds a group of humans banding together to create and pilot massive robots to fight the giant creatures threatening to destroy Earth.
“Pacific Rim” is one of the first titles that Legendary Pictures is fully self-financing, after having co-financed and produced most of its films with Warner Bros., which will release the film on July 12, 2013.

Question: Got any scoop on Sons of Anarchy? —Paulina
Ausiello: That whoreslutwench that Jax cheated on Tara with returns next month to wreak havoc on another already-vulnerable couple. And in equally disturbing news, Clay orders a hit on a major (and much beloved) character.
I’ve added over 2,000+ captures of Charlie from all 13 episodes of the first season of ‘Sons of Anarchy’ into the gallery. Expect the second season set of captures soon. Enjoy!

There are not too many actors that come through the halls of KROQ that both men and women alike will swoon over. Charlie Hunnam is one of them. As Jackson “Jax” Teller on FX’s Sons of Anarchy, Hunnam is the perfect mix of charm and grit, family man and bad ass, and it doesn’t hurt that he’s easy on the eyes and with an accent either.Part #1:
Hunnam had been going to college in England and was studying film with aspirations of being a writer/director, but got an invitation to audition for an acting job (on Queer As Folk), and began acting from there. He figured that he’d learn more about the film making process if he was able to get on a set, and learn things that college wasn’t able to teach him.
Despite there being a lot of acting opportunities in England, he’d always dreamed of himself moving to the States to pursue his career. Quality over quantity has always been an important factor in choosing projects and admits to some “giant periods of unemployment” in between some of the films he’d been in (including Cold Mountain and Children of Men). “At the beginning of an actor’s career, establishing oneself with integrity and building a foundation that will last is most important.”
Sons of Anarchy came after one of those periods of unemployment, but when it came across his desk, he couldn’t turn down the opportunity to play Jax Teller. “The originality of the idea and the story that Kurt [Sutter] was trying to tell was so much more unique and colorful and vivid than the film work I was looking at, so I just jumped at the chance.”
