'Sons of Anarchy's Joel McHale: 'My character is the show's best ever'

The Community star will appear in a multi-episode arc on the FX biker drama as a man who finds himself in trouble due to an ill-conceived double-cross.

The Community star will appear in a multi-episode arc on the FX biker drama as a man who finds himself in trouble due to an ill-conceived double-cross.

Speaking in the show's latest Before the Anarchy web series, he joked: "He's probably the best character this show's ever had.

"My performance should bring this whole thing to a screeching halt."

McHale recently stated that he enjoyed working on a "straight drama" series such as Sons of Anarchy.

Sons of Anarchy kicks off its fifth season on September 11 on FX.

Chuck Zito, known most recently for his role in “Oz” from 1998-2003, is being introduced on SONS OF ANARCHY in their fifth season premiere episode on Tuesday, September 11. To honor his new role this season, he has been asked to sign autographs at Empire Harley Davidson (8 Industrial Lane, New Rochelle, NY) on that day from 4-8pm. He will then lead a run, estimated to exceed a mile of bikes and car clubs, from his hometown of New Rochelle to Jaguars 3 (225 47th Street) in Brooklyn where they will arrive by approximately 9pm. The club will be filled with TVs, where friends will view Chuck as Frankie Diamonds, the newest star of “Sons of Anarchy” at 10pm on FX.

To make the day even more exciting, Chuck will be riding the motorcycle that became legendary as Mickey Rourke’s bike in “Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man.” Mickey was one of the many celebrity clients for whom Chuck was bodyguard as he transitioned from Hell’s Angel to stuntman and actor. Others were as diverse as Liza Minnelli and Charlie Sheen.

Chuck is easily recognizable with his unique style which will soon be offered as a clothing line bearing his name.

As Chuck said in his book, “Street Justice,” “Let’s never forget all who were lost on 9/11. They took away our towers, but they can’t take our freedom, pride or spirit. God bless America and the families of those lost.” Chuck adds that this run will also honor our troops f!ghting to keep us free – and sends them wishes to come home safe!

It wouldn’t seem possible, but when Sons of Anarchy returns for season five on Tuesday, it’s going to be even more shocking and explosive than the previous four seasons.

The end of season four brought about major changes to the dynamic within the California motorcycle club SAMCRO, with leader Clay (Ron Perlman) stepping down as president, and now trying to heal his body – and maybe soul -- from the gunshot wound he suffered at the end of season four. Jax (Charlie Hunnam) is now leading the club, and heavy is the head that wears the crown.

PHOTOS: Kurt Sutter and Wife Katey Sagal on the Set of 'Sons of Anarchy'

“I think that it’s a really fresh season,” Hunnam told The Hollywood Reporter. “It feels unlike any other season before just by virtue of the fact that Jax is president now. Immediately, the club went from the dictatorship that it has developed into, back to the democracy that it always needed to be."

At the red carpet premiere in Los Angeles, THR spoke to the stars and creator Kurt Sutter about the FX show's upcoming season and all the explosive drama to come.

Here are five things to expect from season five:

1. Gemma Is on Her Own

Gemma (Katey Sagal) is separated from her husband, Clay, and dealing with being on her own. It seems she’ll deal with this by being in the company of new men, including Jimmy Smits’ character Nero Padilla.

“I think everything’s weird for Gemma right now,” Sagal told THR. “I think she’s lost and I think that Jimmy Smits’ character isn’t the only man she may be bumping up against, but I think that’s all because she’s so displaced.”

Her relationship with Clay isn’t the only one that’s strained. Her son Jax is busy leading the club and his fiancée Tara (Maggie Siff) is distant towards Gemma.

“She finds herself not liking to go home to an empty house, that’s how I always think of it,” added Sagal.

2. Jax Is at the Head of the Table

One of the biggest changes in season five is that Clay, now feeble and recovering from his gunshot wound, will not be at the head of the SAMCRO table. Instead, Jax will take over.

“I think he’s an excellent leader,” Hunnam told THR. “He really has had to watch Clay make so many mistakes over the years, and he’s really learned from those mistakes.”

However, leading a club that is threatened by the terrifying Damon Pope and is struggling to complete its drug runs is definitely taxing on the new leader.

“I think one of the things he hadn’t anticipated was just how difficult it is to not make those mistakes,” Hunnam said. “Absolute power corrupts absolutely, and I think Jax is starting to appreciate that now.”

3. Tara’s Moving Past Her Troubles

Tara has had to leave her doctor duties behind because of her broken hand, which could have sent her back into a very dark place. However, Siff says that her character is trying to move forward and focus on her new duties as first lady of the club.

"Instead of falling into herself, and depression, she’s trying to be a leader,” she told THR.

“She’s sort of trying to numb out in certain ways about what’s going on with her hand,” she added. “You see her smoking some more pot, you see her trying to take the edge off the things that would have otherwise, in former days, made her weepy.”

As for her relationship with Jax, Siff called it the “ultimate bad boy love story.” That story will continue to be written this season as Jax deals with running the club.

“I think they’re kind of fated, they’re meant to be together,” Siff told THR. “I think that they both feel that in some way that doesn’t always make a lot of sense, but kind of demands that she keep showing up.”

4. There’s a New Boss in Town

Lost star Harold Perrineau will take on the role of Damon Pope, an ex-drug kingpin who is on a revenge mission after Tigg (Kim Coates) accidentally k!lled his daughter at the end of season four.

"For me, it’s not that hard because it’s not that different from Lost because I’m playing a grieving father,” Perrineau told THR. “This is just a grieving father with means and a bit of a mean streak.”

But his revenge mission may turn into something else entirely, according to Perrineau, who played Michael Dawson on Lost.

“What happens is, he ends up being more of a mentor to Jax,” Perrineau revealed to THR. “It’s really odd in how that happens. In tragedy, sometimes you make odd connections.”

5. death Is Coming

Sons of Anarchy has never had a season without a few deaths, but this season may top them all when it comes to destruction, both emotionally and physically.

Executive producer Paris Barclay says that season five will have a lot of death, adding that not all the characters who appear in the first episode will still be alive at the finale.

When THR asked Sutter how many characters he plans to k!ll off this season, the show’s creator simply said, “Too many to count.”

Season five of Sons of Anarchy premieres 10 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11 on FX.

About time, and this thread won't get deleted or merged so let's have actual discussions and not just the run of the mill sh*t on every site. If you find a dope SOA topic post it here and props will be given and your questions will be answered.

First question: If the club house wouldn't of gotten shot up in the beginning of last season when they were voting a leadership change which stopped at Chibbs, who do you think would've won the vote.... Bobby or Clay ?

Yeah, the season would've been way different if Bobby won the vote. I hope Opie finishes what he started last season when he shot Clay. As much as people like Juice I hope he gets k!lled for what he did last season, shooting Miles and making the 2 other prospects play Russian roulette all while knowing they didn't take the coke. You don't bite the hand that feeds you.

Juice got lucky Chibs is such a softie towards him, off'ing ( or trying to )yourself is not cool in the club as Jax pointed out Also I think Chibbs wife being black and Juice being half got Chibbs to let his guard down..Opie has no one left to lean on as his pop is gone Lyla isn't a strong emotional type and his mom is always down on him. I think Tigg is going to cross Clay at some point, after having a talk with Gemma and help out Jax when voting. I'm interested to see if Bobby is really good with Jax being the boss since Bobby I think also wanted it too. I think the fat prospect will be the one to off Juice, but Jax backed Juice hard after the coke went missing.

Harold Perrineau Talks SONS OF ANARCHY, Joining the Show in Season 5, and Playing an Intense Character



[pic - click to view]

Posted: September 11th, 2012 at 5:06 am

Having seen the first two episodes of the new season of Sons of Anarchy, I can say that I will never look at actor Harold Perrineau the same again. As ex-drug lord gone legit businessman Damon Pope, his restrained performance is equal parts menacing and chilling, and gives every indication that he will be one of the most terrifying antagonists SAMCRO has ever seen. The show stars Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman, Katey Sagal, Maggie Siff, Kim Coates, Mark Boone Junior, Tommy Flanagan, Ryan Hurst, Theo Rossi and Dayton Callie, among others.

During this recent exclusive interview with Collider, to promote Season 5 of the hit FX drama series, Harold Perrineau (Lost, Oz) talked about how he came to be playing this brutal new role, how he was able to understand who Damon Pope is, that the tight-knit cast has been very welcoming, how it takes a little bit of time to shake such an intense character when they’re done shooting, and who he’d love to see Damon Pope have a confrontation with. Check out what he had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.

Collider: What were you told about the role of Damon Pope, when it first came to you? Had you watched the show and did you have an idea of how brutal it might be?

Sons of Anarchy Harold PerrineauHAROLD PERRINEAU: You know what? I had watched the show a couple of times and one of the reasons I didn’t keep watching it was because I saw a scene where someone got stabbed in the kitchen after a f!ght. I thought, “Yeah, that’s enough. I got it.” In my whole career, I’ve seen it all the time. So, I was like, “Cool, I understand,” I didn’t really feel like having that kind of stuff in my head. And then, this year, I was in India and one of the things that was on a lot was Sons of Anarchy. I started watching it again ‘cause that was what was on in India, so I caught up with it. And then, when I got back, I heard that there was this role. (Show creator) Kurt Sutter and I had had a brief conversation last year about me maybe being on the show, so I was like, “I hear there’s something coming up, and I would love to do it,” but he had someone else in mind. And then, he talked to me again and said, “Come do the show. I’d love you to do the show. But, there are going to be some brutal things, so get ready for it.” I said, “Yeah, don’t worry, Kurt. I’ve been around a lot of brutal things. I’m good.” Then, I read the first script and I was like, “Come on, man!” Right away, I was a little taken aback.

Kurt Sutter has talked about casting you in this role is great because it’s unexpected. Was that part of the appeal of the role for you?

PERRINEAU: Exactly! People have seen me a lot, over the years, and some of this stuff you won’t expect. I didn’t expect it because of the writing. So yeah, I thought it would be really interesting to take on, to see if I could get people’s opinions to change. I love to be an actor. If I get you believing in Damon Pope, then I’ve done my job.

This cast is so tight that it must be a little bit intimidating to come in as the new guy. What was it like to join this show?

Harold Perrineau Sons of AnarchyPERRINEAU: They were really welcoming. They’re all really, really nice. Everybody was like, “Hey, man! Welcome to our family!” But, it was all with a bit of separation since I can’t be too close to anybody because my character is really angry. We’re actors, but you don’t want all of that nice stuff to overflow, and then you don’t believe that they’re actually adversaries. So, while it’s really nice that they’ve been really engaging, I’ve also kept a little bit of a distance ‘cause I get to like people really quickly and you can see it in my face, so I try to stay away.

Was there one specific thing that really helped you to understand who Damon Pope is and how you wanted to approach playing him?

PERRINEAU: There was, yes. It was about understanding what can of pain I would be in, if someone k!lled my daughter. I had the same sort of issues on Lost because I had a child that went missing. It came from a place of understanding what I would do or how I would feel, and then I added on also having the power to do what he can do and thought about how far I would go. It became pretty easy, after that.

Is it more difficult to figure out a character when he’s somebody who gets other people to do his dirty work for him?

PERRINEAU: No, it’s not. You just have to figure out his motivations, and I think he’s really motivated. I’ve played a bunch of grieving fathers, so he’s motivated. It’s pretty easy to figure out why he makes the moves that he makes. That’s the key.

At least when we first meet him, Damon Pope doesn’t show much of his emotion. Will viewers start to see his emotions, as the season progresses, or will he stay very hardened?

PERRINEAU: He’s a very smart guy. He’s really calculating. Emotions are going to be hard for him to express because being emotional is not how he got where he is. If he does show emotions, you know it’s going to be really deep.

Because of how intense this role is, is this the kind of character that’s hard to leave on the set, when you’re done shooting for the day?

Harold Perrineau derek anthony Sons of Anarchy

PERRINEAU: A little bit, yeah. Whenever I’m going or coming, my wife always looks at me and is like, “You’re working, right?,” and I’ll go, “Yeah,” and she’s like, “Okay, I’ll excuse the way you just talked to me.” I’m really short and abrupt when I’m playing him. Damon Pope’s mind is working really fast, all the time and in a lot of different directions. Whenever I’m about to go into it, a couple of days before and until a few hours later, it just lingers. I’m trying to train myself so that, if anything happens on set and we’re improvising or talking, I can stay in that mode and answer as him, not as me. So, it takes a little bit of time to enter into it and a little bit of time to pull out, but not too much.

Do you need to get to know a character pretty well, before you can improvise as him, or does that come pretty easily for you?

PERRINEAU: I need to get to know him. At first, I didn’t know him. Kurt and I talked about not really knowing much about him. He’s got all the characters of the show to figure out. I’ve only been thinking about this character for these few months, but he’s been thinking about it for awhile. We both recognize that, as the character starts off, he’ll be a little two-dimensional until we get more time with him. I needed to find a little bit more about him, so I just did a bunch of work before coming in. I talked to Kurt about a couple ideas, just trying to fill it out. And as it’s gone on a little bit, you start to understand a little bit more about him and he becomes more three-dimensional. So, I really do have to understand the character to go from there.

Do you think Damon Pope is a man who likes what he does, or do you think it’s just come out of the situation he’s been in with what he’s made for himself?

Harold Perrineau Sons of AnarchyPERRINEAU: I think it comes out of what he’s made for himself. He’s decided to make certain choices, and not all of his choices are good, but they are for the betterment of not only himself but what he considers his family, and taking into consideration the world that he lives in. He really has a lot of legit businesses, and we talk a lot about that. Those legit business are really community oriented. In many African American communities, to have another prominent African American man drilling hope into those communities is really powerful. But, how he gets there is the funny little clip. We have those same things that parallel to our country, so it makes sense when our president decides to go to war, and make that regrettable call to send young men and women off to die for the betterment of the country. For some leaders in certain areas, and Damon Pope in particular, there are choices that you have to make, in order to be an effective leader. So, they are the circumstances that he’s found himself in and that he’s created as well, but it’s just part of business.

How difficult was it to play out that scene in the first episode back, when Damon Pope retaliates against Tig (Kim Coates), who’s the one responsible for his daughter’s death?

PERRINEAU: We played with a lot of different things in that scene. We played with just pure anger. We played with regret, which I think is the right way. It’s a regrettable, though necessary circumstance that we find ourselves in. We played with sorrow. We played with all those things. That night, we went through a bunch of different things, so it was a really long night. I remember driving home from that night, and I almost pulled over. When you have emotional days, you’re more wiped out than if you ran a marathon, though running a marathon is pretty hard. But, I remember being really wiped out. It was so early in the process, and we were just playing with all this stuff. What do you do, when somebody hurts, maims or k!lls your family member? What does anybody do? That’s really interesting. People are like, “Oh, you’re going to be a bad guy on the show,” but I’m like, “They’re all bad guys!” They’re a motorcycle gang. They hurt people and sell drugs, but you love them. That’s the really interesting thing about this show and its followers and being part of it, and Kurt keeps asking those questions. For me, that’s what makes it a lot of fun. We’ll see where it goes.

Is there anyone on the show that you haven’t gotten to work with yet, that you would love to have a confrontation with?

PERRINEAU: I would love to have a confrontation with Ron Perlman. He’s just somebody who I’ve been watching his whole career, and because he’s such a big guy and I’m not. That would be really interesting to see. You’d just see the will of two really bull-headed men, and that kind of conflict is always interesting, when men get to that place where they’re defending their territory and their families.

Sons of Anarchy airs on Tuesday nights on FX.

We have those same things that parallel to our country, so it makes sense when our president decides to go to war, and make that regrettable call to send young men and women off to die for the betterment of the country. For some leaders in certain areas, and Damon Pope in particular, there are choices that you have to make, in order to be an effective leader. So, they are the circumstances that he’s found himself in and that he’s created as well, but it’s just part of business.

How difficult was it to play out that scene in the first episode back, when Damon Pope retaliates against Tig (Kim Coates), who’s the one responsible for his daughter’s death?

PERRINEAU: We played with a lot of different things in that scene. We played with just pure anger. We played with regret, which I think is the right way. It’s a regrettable, though necessary circumstance that we find ourselves in. We played with sorrow. We played with all those things. That night, we went through a bunch of different things, so it was a really long night. I remember driving home from that night, and I almost pulled over. When you have emotional days, you’re more wiped out than if you ran a marathon, though running a marathon is pretty hard. But, I remember being really wiped out. It was so early in the process, and we were just playing with all this stuff. What do you do, when somebody hurts, maims or k!lls your family member? What does anybody do? That’s really interesting. People are like, “Oh, you’re going to be a bad guy on the show,” but I’m like, “They’re all bad guys!” They’re a motorcycle gang. They hurt people and sell drugs, but you love them. That’s the really interesting thing about this show and its followers and being part of it, and Kurt keeps asking those questions. For me, that’s what makes it a lot of fun. We’ll see where it goes.

Is there anyone on the show that you haven’t gotten to work with yet, that you would love to have a confrontation with?

PERRINEAU: I would love to have a confrontation with Ron Perlman. He’s just somebody who I’ve been watching his whole career, and because he’s such a big guy and I’m not. That would be really interesting to see. You’d just see the will of two really bull-headed men, and that kind of conflict is always interesting, when men get to that place where they’re defending their territory and their families.

Sons of Anarchy airs on Tuesday nights on FX.

"Heavy is the head that wears the crown," goes the old saying. And as Jax Teller, antihero of FX's Sons of Anarchy and new president of the titular motorcycle club, will discover this season, it's heavier still with two new influences whispering in his ears.

Fresh off its most watched season, the oft-described Hamlet-on-Harleys will likely get another boost from Dexter/NYPD Blue vet Jimmy Smits and Lost/Oz alum Harold Perrineau, who both join for lengthy stints in Season 5 as a dubious ally and a formidable enemy, respectively.

Smits plays Nero Padilla, a self-described "companionator" (read: pimp), former gang-banger and counselor for the newly crowned Jax (Charlie Hunnam). Creator Kurt Sutter says Nero is a new breed of character for the series, the mentor who might not have his protégé's best interests at heart: "We try to live in the gray on the show — you're not quite sure who to root for or who to hate."

Unlike most characters in the Sons universe, Nero's connection to the club begins solely through Gemma (Katey Sagal), whose marriage to ex-club president Clay (Ron Perlman) imploded at the end of last season. "Nero is a repercussion of some of Gemma's denial behavior," explains Sagal.

Despite the potentially fatal fallout from Clay — Perlman warns that, whatever Clay's endgame is, "he cannot live without Gemma" — she and Nero find themselves in a budding relationship. "All of the characters are trying to find footholds," Smits says. "Nero in his way facilitates that for both Gemma and Jax."

Perrineau's character, ex-drug lord Damon Pope, "falls into a more archetypal pattern on the show," Sutter says. Pope begins the season as one of the more terrifying antagonists the club has seen, and with good reason: The club was responsible for his daughter's death last season. "You don't cross Damon Pope," says Perrineau. "At the end of the day, it's really just a problem."

One Son learns that the hard way in the premiere, when he winds up on the receiving end of Pope's wrath. Perrineau says Pope's vengeance is one of the most jaw-droppingly awful moments he's ever played — and that's saying something. "I've been on an island trapped, I've been in jail with guys who [perform s3x acts] to get smack. I thought, 'Nothing's going to surprise me.'" He laughs. "The very first episode, I was like, 'Ohhh...augh.'"

And yet, for a show whose bread and butter is blood and mayhem, the word most often a.ssociated with its making is surprising: fun. Smits, Perrineau, Sagal, Perlman and Sutter himself all use it, which may be why so many other big (and unexpected) names will pop up this season, including Community cutup Joel McHale and High School Musical grad Ashley Tisdale. "It's one of those things where the more popular the show gets, these fans pop out of the woodwork," explains Sutter. And now that the show is entering its final phase, wannabe guest stars had better get while the getting is good.

Sutter's current plan is to ride off into the sunset after seven seasons, but if he has a definitive ending in mind, he's not telling. Even Sagal, his real-life wife, doesn't know what's to come. "I keep asking, 'What's going on?' But he won't give it up," she says.

Perlman, similarly in the dark, jokes, "All I can tell you is, if we are following the structure of Hamlet, no one ends up alive." Ah, well. Such is the life of a Son.

Sons of Anarchy premieres Tuesday at 10/9c on FX.

Danny Trejo joined his fellow cast members of "Sons of Anarchy" for the Season Five premiere event around a fleet of Harley-Davidsons in Westwood.

If there’s any place where motorcycles and Hollywood me, it’s on the meeting fictional stories of the “Son of Anarchy.”

With “Harley-Davidson” rolling in from Milwaukee to supply the promo motorcycle, the stars of the long-running show gathered on the red carpet in Westwood for a special screening of the season premiere.

Season Four left off with former club leader Clay (Ron Perlman) shot to bits and the motorcycle gang under siege from drug cartels, the CIA, Irishmen and rival hoods.

As Season Five lifts its kickstand this Fall, Jax (Charlie Hunnam) is in charge of the club and trying to complete a major drug deal while authorities off their payroll close in around them.

A unique blending of the Los Angeles motorcycle community and be-suited Hollywood types hit the Fox Westwood Village theater, taking the occasional moment to sit on the newest Harley-Davidson model, the 2013 Street Bob.

Harley’ Hollywood connection is part of the companies 110th anniversary year. The “Sons of Anarchy premiere and after-party at Malibu’s Gladstone’s Restaurant are just a couple more bashes in the year full of international rallies and anniversary motorcycle rollouts.

The car and motorcycle press got pushed to the back of the press line as the Hollywood press corps and the lizard-like paparazzi muscled into the fray. But that worked out just fine as the “Sons of Anarchy” stars were more interested in talking up their shared love of motorcycles.

Dayton Callie (former Police Chief Wayne Unser) said he was sworn to secrecy on what fans will be seeing in Season Five. But he could confirm that his character would not be seen on a bike this year.

“I ride, but they won’t let me ride on the show,” Callie said. “They’re teasing me with it every season, but I don’t get to ride. In the past I’ve ridden Dynas, Fat Boys. I get ride for Charity events we do – like Wounded Warrior events.”

“I’ve been riding since I was 16,” Callie added. “But I didn’t always have a bike. Nice thing is, nowadays, if I want to bike, I can just go out and buy one.”

Danny Trejo (the head of the show’s drug cartel) said he was a longterm rider and loved being part of the show.

“My last bike was on the cover of “Easy Rider,” Trejo said. “I get street cred for that.”

Chuck Zito, real-life former Hell’s Angel and now a recurring cast member on “Sons,” said the joy of working on show was just being himself.

“On the show, I get to ride my own motorcycle. I get to wear my own clothes. I get to wear my own jewelry. I try to bring some authenticity to the show every chance I get.”

After the red carpet concluded, stars, execs and fans alike piled into the theater to watch this year’s premiere episode. While CraveOnline will keep this red carpet recap 100% spoiler free, it’s fair to say fans will get their fill of gas-powered intrigue, nudity and violence.
