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.

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.

According to MarketSaw and Fanboy Confidential, this is the official synopsis for the upcoming science fiction spectacle Pacific Rim, which will feature robots battling giant monsters! They also said that the first look will be shown at the San Diego Comic Con later this year.
Check out the synopsis below!
From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ epic sci-fi action adventure “Pacific Rim.”
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes-a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)-who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
Oscar® nominee Guillermo del Toro (“Pan’s Labyrinth”) is directing “Pacific Rim” from a script by Travis Beacham (“Clash of the Titans”). Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni and Mary Parent are producing, with Callum Greene serving as executive producer.
The film stars Charlie Hunnam (TV’s “Sons of Anarchy”), Idris Elba (“Thor”), Rinko Kikuchi (“The Brothers Bloom”), Charlie Day (“Horrible Bosses”), and Ron Perlman (the “Hellboy” films). The ensemble cast also includes Max Martini, Robert Kazinsky, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Diego Klattenhoff, and Brad William Henke.
According to Variety Red Sea Media has acquired international sales rights to Frankie Go Boom.
Red Sea Media has acquired international sales rights to romantic comedy “Frankie Go Boom” and will start sales at Cannes Market.
“Frankie Go Boom,” which premiered at SXSW, is written and directed by Jordan Roberts, and stars Charlie Hunnam, Chris O’Dowd, Ron Perlman, Lizzy Caplan, Whitney Cummings and Chris North.
The film is produced by Pavlina Hatoupis, Marcel Langenegger and Katayoun A. Marciano, and executive produced by Elliot Lewitt and Julie Kirkham.
“Frankie” centers on a mortifying not-quite sex tape that ends up on the Internet.

I have added 34 additional stills from Sons of Anarchy episodes 4×09 ‘Kiss’, 4×10 ‘Hands’, 4×11 ‘Call of Duty’, 4×12 ‘Burnt and Purged Away’, 4×13 ‘To Be, Act 1’ and 4×14 ‘To Be, Act 2’ into the gallery. This is the last batch, and so with that being the case I have replaced all the stills with their original untagged versions as promised, including the last set as well.
I hope you enjoyed all the extra stills from this past season of SOA, I know I did. I’ll be putting more focus into finally finishing the last of Season 3 captures soon, so if all goes as planned those should be up by July if not sooner.
