Some people don’t like to watch TV shows like Sons of Anarchy on FX because they’re too intense. Even if this applies to you, though, you could probably stand to give this clip a try, since it’s only about 30 seconds of distilled intensity as opposed to a full hour. Anyway, lots of intensity in this one, plus bricks of cocaine and motorcycles. The next episode airs this Tuesday night, October 11th, at 10 PM on FX.

Back in the 80′s, if you would have told me that I’d grow up to see the guy from Beauty and the Beast threaten the mom from Married With Children in a menacing manner, I would have called you a god damn liar. But that’s just what happens on this week’s Sons of Anarchy when Ron Perlman gives Katey Sagal the business for trying to tell him what to do. My god, the future is now, people! Watch the clip above and see for yourself.

Fewer things are more bad ass than 1%er motorcycle clubs. While the true and gritty reality of belonging to one of these clubs can’t fully be represented on basic cable, Sons of Anarchy does a damn close job. In celebration of the start of the fourth season, we’ve decided to revisit the ten most bad ass moments of the first three seasons.

Note: The two errors that originally appeared in this piece have been corrected. Thanks to everyone in the comment section who pointed them out.

Burning Off Kyle’s Tattoo

Popular legend holds that if you leave a 1%er motorcycle club they want your tattoos back. According to Sons of Anarchy, you can either get them burned off or cut off. Kyle, the exiled member of SAMCRO responsible for Opie’s incarceration opted for the former. In one of the most brutal scenes ever aired on basic cable, we got to see him hang from chains while the tattoo was burned off with a blowtorch.

AJ Weston’s Stoic Death

Henry Rollins could put on a pink prom dress and read scenes from Steel Magnolias and still look tough. On SOA he plays an open white nationalist opponent of SAMCRO. Before SAMCRO executes him, AJ Weston says a touching goodbye to his son. This isn’t just bad ass, it also lends an interesting complexity to a thoroughly detestable character, humanizing even the most inhuman man.

Killing June Stahl

Anyone who’s seen The Godfather knows that even the most hardened criminals hesitate before offing the pigs. Double down on that when it comes to federal agents. But Agent June Stahl went over the line one too many times and paid the price in the season three finale. Most of us spent the first three seasons wondering why no one thought to put her out of her misery.

Wherever you have an ensemble cast, you most likely have a string of bizarre and/or embarrassing early roles played by the actors. Or, in the case of Sons of Anarchy, you have early credits that are polar opposites of the characters they play now. Have a look at the tough as nails ladies and gentlemen of SAMCRO before they grew out their hair and got bugs in their teeth.

Charlie Hunnam

Before joining Sam Crow, Charlie Hunnam was a member of a very different gang when he played Nathan Maloney on the hit drama Queer as Folk.

Ron Perlman

With hundreds of credits to his name, Ron Perlman has appeared in all manner of film, television, and theater roles. But only one of these roles required him to dress like a lion. Before he was Clay, he was a big hit on television as Beauty and the Beast‘s Vincent, the love interest to Linda Hamilton. And these were back in the days when Hamilton was really hot, so you know Garfield must have had a really charming personality.

Katey Sagal

Of course, everyone remembers Katey Sagal as the undomesticated housewife Peggy Bundy on Married With Children, but it’s still almost hard to believe. Sagal’s portrays the characters as polar opposites, with one likely to burn the roast and the other to burn a cigarette out on your face.

Sons of Anarchy‘ creator Kurt Sutter once referred to a Screen Junkies writer as “a c*nt blogger.” This wildly accurate description of our writing staff left a special place in my heart for all things ‘Sons of Anarchy‘ related. As such, I’m more than happy to bring you two new clips of the show’s forth season, which begins one week from today.

And as a special treat to our female readers, the clips feature both Ron Perlman and Danny Trejo. That’s right; “Hellboy” and”Machete” together on the same show. I hope you ladies can control yourselves.

In news that you didn’t care to know, there’s renewed interest in David Hasselhoff‘s penis. The Baywatch star will join the new season of Sons Of Anarchy as a former porn star who didn’t get his python at the pet shop. Now retired, his character makes serious money (and does a great service to mankind) by producing sleazy girl-on-girl films.

Show creator and pacifist Kurt Sutter painted an inadvertently gross picture by tweeting “C*nt. C*nt.C*nt.C*nt.C*nt.” that the “best part” of this casting is “Hoff and Tom Arnold in the same scene.” Let’s hope they keep their producer pants on. (TV Guide)

Son’s of Anarchy creator, and rabid Screen Junkies hater, Kurt Sutter posted a new promo for the biker drama on his blog this morning. It doesn’t offer up much, but it looks like the Teller family is happy to have baby Abel back, and Jax cut off his golden locks. Could the show be turning over a new leaf? Are we to expect no more rape, intravenous drug-taking, or skull stomping? Oh no wait, Clay’s brandishing a shot gun. Good to see the Sons haven’t gotten soft. I never clocked them as Red Hot Chili Pepper fans though.

Who am I kidding? EVERYONE loves RHCP.

Two interesting actors are joining two interesting TV shows. Interesting? My verdict: “yes.”

Fans of gritty badassitude, which I hope you are, will also likely be fans of this team-up: Danny Trejo and “Sons of Anarchy.” The Machete star joins FX’s motorcycle drama as Romero “Romeo” Parada, a charmingly kickass Mexican military man who will pal around with the SAMCRO crew. He also recently guested on ABC’s”Modern Family,” but I didn’t see the episode. I assume him and Grandpa Al Bundy came to blows. (TVLine)

Meanwhile, Mos Def will do Showtime‘s “Dexter,” and by that I mean he’ll star on the actual show, not do his own sweded version. The actor / rapper will play a newly religious ex-con in multiple episodes. However, violence still seems to follow him wherever he goes, despite claims of being reformed. He joins previously announced Colin Hanks as one of the new season’s villains. (Hollywood Reporter)

Ron Perlman’s 9 Greatest Scowls http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/ron-perlmans-9-greatest-scowls/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/ron-perlmans-9-greatest-scowls/#comments Fri, 08 Apr 2011 22:24:24 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=206194 Seriously, he's a great actor, but he's also the scowliest S.O.B, in Hollywood

The post Ron Perlman’s 9 Greatest Scowls appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>

From film, to television, to video games, Ron Perlman has done it all. And he’s done it all with a scowl! Seriously, he’s a great actor, but he’s also the scowliest son of a bitch in Hollywood. Well, hopefully this list of Ron Perlman‘s nine greatest scowls will turn that frown upside-down.

Vincent – “Beauty and the Beast” (1987)

Jesus, I forgot this show even existed. The 80′s were a crazy time, and cocaine was a hell of a drug. Seriously, who the hell approved a network drama featuring a guy dressed up like a lion with Downs? At any rate, despite the heavy makeup, Ron’s trademark scowl comes shining through.

One – The City of Lost Children (1995)

Ron Perlman’s role in the French film, The City of Lost Children, proves that the scowl breaks right through the language barrier.

Sayer of the Law – The Island of Dr. Moreau (1996)

Yet another example of Perlman’s scowl having to fight its way through a pund of makeup, The Island of Dr. Moreau also featured noted scowler Marlon Brando. All though by that time, Brando was so overweight, he was showing a lot more jowl than scowl.

Johner – Alien: Resurrection (1997)

If I had to fight an army of aliens with a dwarf tied to my back, I’d be scowling too. Not to mention that awful Winona Ryder cyborg was constantly running her yap.

Koulikov – Enemy at the Gates (2001)

If there was ever a reason to scowl, the Battle of Stalingrad was it. With nearly two-million people killed, it makes sense that there wasn’t a lot of smiling going on. As such, Perlman was perfect for the role.

Reman Viceroy Vkruk – Star Trek: Nemesis (2002)

Honestly, other than the scowl, there’s no way you would guess that Ron Perlman is under that mask. Why the hell would you higher a star to play a role like that. You might as well grab a day laborer from the Home Depot parking lot.

Hellboy – Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008)

Jesus, I’m beginning to think that Perlman is a modern day Lon Chaney.

Clarence ‘Clay’ Morrow -”Sons of Anarchy” (2008)

It makes sense that Perlman would be scowling while on the set of “Son’s of Anarchy.” Chances are Kurt Sutter just called him a c*nt for no apparent reason.

Felson – Season of the Witch (2010)

We saved the best for last, and by best, I mean worst. Season of the Witch bombed with the critics and at the box office. But it’s failure can not be chalked up to a lack of scowling.

The End

When I interviewed Charlie Hunnam for his film The Ledge at Sundance I had no idea it would cause such a stir. I of course asked about his TV series “Sons of Anarchy” also. Hunnam expressed a difference of opinion on where the show had gone in the third season. “SOA” fans didn’t even believe he’d say anything contrary, so we posted the audio file of the exchange.

Now it seems “SOA” creator Kurt Sutter feels I baited his actor into slamming the show.

This is surprising because the Q&A was a literal transcription of the exchange. The question posed to Hunnam was “Where does Jax need to go in season four?”

For complete transparency, here is the entire 9 minute interview. It is Hunnam and The Ledge director Matthew Chapman together discussing the film, with my “SOA” questions at the end. The audio confirms I may fumble when asking some questions, but I have not altered any of the quotations.

I would be happy to speak with Mr. Sutter directly. I take issues of ethics seriously and would address any concerns he has.

I’m most surprised that as of now, nobody has contacted me directly about this issue.

We still had time to discuss the deep themes of the film and get a scoop on “Sons.”

The post UPDATED: Charlie Hunnam Has Strong Thoughts On ‘Sons Of Anarchy’ And ‘The Ledge’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
UPDATE: Check out the entire audio HERE.

UPDATE: For all of you who don’t believe that Hunnam said what he said about”Sons of Anarchy” in the interview below, I’ve posted a sound file at the very bottom of the page. And yes, it’s really Hunnam, who in real life is British, talking. It’s not one of my editors putting on his best accent.

Another major Sundance distribution deal was for The Ledge, a thriller starring “Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam, Liv Tyler, Patrick Wilson and Terrence Howard. Hunnam plays Gavin, a man prepared to jump from a ledge, recounting to a detective (Howard) the events that led him up there. It turns out his neighbor Joe (Wilson) didn’t approve of Gavin’s tolerance of gays and affections for his wife Shana (Tyler).

Before IFC Films made their deal for The Ledge, I got to talk with Hunnam at the Sundance Film Festival. Sundance interviews tend to be brief, as talent races from place to place just like I cram four movies into a day. We still had time to discuss the deep themes of the film and get a scoop on “Sons.”

Q: You kept Jax’s hair for The Ledge?

CH: Yes, unfortunately that was one of the really big compromises that we had to make. I wasn’t able to cut my hair because of the continuation of story in “Sons of Anarchy” from season 2 to season 3 which is when we shot this. I had to keep the hair and I also had to keep a little bit of facial hair which we discussed at great length. It was a huge compromise and we were both a little disappointed that that was the case but it was one of those unavoidable things. There are certain realities to being on a TV show and most of them are positive. Some of them are a little negative.

Q: It wasn’t criticism, I just recognized the look.

CH: Yeah, you know, we were able to rationalize it in that he’s a little anti-establishment, Gavin, so maybe it was a reaction against the kind of vanilla cookie-cutter aesthetic that was desired from the hotel [where Gavin worked.] Him keeping a bit of the facial hair and the long hair was a little f*ck you to the man.

Q: How does it feel that there are at least two films with a homophobic villain?

CH: A homophobic villain?

Q: Red State also has a fundamentalist preacher killing gay people.

CH: I never thought Patrick’s character to be homophobic. I took him to be misguided and fundamental in his believes. Obviously, some of those were to do with homosexuality but he was much more fundamentalist Christian than an active bigot in his own right. I never really took that away from him which is why I was so shocked when you asked the question. I guess there are a couple scenes that deal with his views towards homosexuality but I never thought that was a tenet, pillar of his personality or a theme of the film. I may be wrong.

Q: Should we confront people like Joe?

CH: I think particularly for instance in politics, I don’t think faith should play a part in politics, in modern politics the way it does. I think there are a lot of outdated ideas that go with man’s interpretation of God’s will, of those amongst the believers that can be very, very dangerous in today’s society. I think that religion absolutely has its place and I very much live and let live. I do have a confused but real belief in some kind of energy, be it the universe or God or whatever. I don’t at all subscribe to any scripture or organized religion because to me, all religion, if there is a God, everybody is worshiping the same God and it’s just man’s different interpretation of God. So for that to cause animosity or wars or anything like that is really just kind of a terrible, terrible catastrophe, a concept that I think is very outdated, very, very dangerous.

Q: But even when it’s not a situation as tense as The Ledge, it seems like guys like Joe are dangerous. Is there a less dangerous way to confront them?

CH: Yeah, I mean any kind of fanatic is probably very, very dangerous to pick holes in somebody’s fanaticism. That’s why fanaticism is dangerous.

Q: Where does Jax need to go in Season Four?

CH: I think that he needs to assert himself and needs to control his psychotic mother who has no place trying to run a motorcycle club. If I was in charge of the writing, I would really, really pull back on that because that’s just a device that doesn’t ever ring true to me. So it’s very frustrating to me sometimes to be put in a position as an actor to have to play out scenes where I don’t believe the dynamic and I don’t believe that Jax would ever be taking orders from his mother, you know. So I hope that that is something that can be remedied a little bit.

Q: Will there be a bigger jump in time between seasons three and four?

CH: Yeah, because I don’t think that the show can sustain us being in prison and obviously we got to prison and it’s been well established that we’re going for two years. So probably be out in 18 months and so I don’t think we can sustain 18 months worth of prison storylines. So I think they’ll probably pick us up as we get released from prison would be my guess.

‘Sons of Anarchy’ Actress Winter Ave Zoli http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/sons-of-anarchy-actress-winter-ave-zoli/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/sons-of-anarchy-actress-winter-ave-zoli/#comments Fri, 26 Nov 2010 00:09:19 +0000 Reza F. http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/sons-of-anarchy-actress-winter-ave-zoli/ A former stage actress, ballerina, and one-time resident of the Czech Republic, Winter Ave Zoli is best known these days as the hard-headed porn star sweetheart of bearded biker outlaw Opie Winston on FX’s leading series "Sons of Anarchy." And if you have a hard time picturing this tousle-haired beauty as the type who’d get down on camera for a quick couple hundred, it’s all the better; the contrast between Zoli’s disarming look of wide-eyed innocence and the seedy lifestyle played out by her on-screen alter ego is exactly what makes her character a thrilling fixture in the series. A word from Winter: "Lyla and Opie are drawn to each other because they both have this sort of sweet sadness." More pics of Winter after the jump...

‘Sons of Anarchy’ Season Three Trailer Comes Roaring At Us http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/sons-of-anarchy-season-three-trailer-comes-roaring-at-us/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/sons-of-anarchy-season-three-trailer-comes-roaring-at-us/#comments Wed, 28 Jul 2010 16:51:37 +0000 Reza F. A new trailer for season three of "Sons Of Anarchy" looks as bad ass as one would expect. Jax seems a bit down after the events of last year, but that's nothing gunfights, fistfights, and burying a guy in the sand up to his neck and then running his face over can't fix. It's the simple things in life that bring us the most joy. Let the healing begin. Get revved up by the new trailer after the jump...
