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.”

What’s the most immediate problem Jax has to deal with?
Sutter: We begin the season with the pressure that we left off with last year. We threw in the death of Damon Pope’s daughter. That ignites early on in the first episode. We see the ramifications of that and Damon Pope’s response to that. Pope obviously starts out as this very strong antagonist and will remain so for a while. The interesting thing that happens with Pope and Jax is they’re forced to get in bed with this guy Nero as a result of their misstep.
Whose counsel will Jax seek in the club? Last we saw, his right-hand man Opie was no longer at his side.
Sutter: We see Jax really create his inner circle as early as the premiere episode. And Opie will definitely be part of that. I think we’ll see in Episode 2 the beginning of that relationship being repaired. As always on this show, it is done through extreme circumstances, but Opie will make an attempt to be back in Jax’s life. I just felt like it would have been too neat and too convenient for Opie, after everything that happened to him, to sort of take a seat at that table at the end of last season. I needed him to earn it a little bit and put him in orbit for an episode or so. And that’s what we’ve done.
Speaking of Tara, is she fully committed to this lifestyle at this point?
Sutter: Tara’s dilemma up to this point was always, “Am I in or am I out?” I think she’s really made the decision last season that she is in. Her dilemma this season is, “OK, I’m in, and how do I rectify that? How do I be true to this world? How do I serve Jax as his queen? How do I help the club? How do I do the things that an old lady is supposed to do and still be true to myself, and is that possible? Can I still be Dr. Tara Knowles and the matriarch of a motorcycle club?” I didn’t want to suddenly in the course of four weeks have Tara turn into Gemma. [But] we will see her definitely make more Gemma-like choices. We’ll see her struggle with her own impulse and then the realization of what it is that she signed up for
The badass bikers of “Sons of Anarchy” come roaring back to the tube in September — and Yahoo TV! has an exclusive look at a teaser for Season 5 of the FX series.
I’ve added 67 photos of Charlie, co-star Tommy Flanagan and actress Ashley Tisdale out in Los Angeles, California yesterday seen filming scenes for an episode of Sons of Anarchy which will air in their upcoming fifth season this September.
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.”
We began shooting episode 501. It feels all new and all familiar. I sat at that table during the first read-through and looked at the faces. It’s fascinating watching the cast members grow over the years. I notice the shift in energies, personalities, and relationships. Some folks have embraced the flow of the show and have taken the success in stride; some, not so much.
Charlie Hunnam, not unlike his character, has matured into a strong, gracious leader. Early on, I think Charlie struggled with the concept of being number one on the call sheet. The attention and that identity made him uncomfortable. Now, he owns it. He is the president. He sets the tone for the rest of the cast. He shows up early, comes prepared, and gives more than he receives. In Charlie’s own words, he’s come halfway to meet Jax. Meaning, he’s dug deep to tap into his primal, outlaw nature and keeps that accessible. As “actory” as that may sound, I know the work that entails and the struggle it presents. “Being raw” is not something that is easily turned on and off. It’s that struggle that separates performers from actors.
