Behind-The-Scenes ‘Sons Of Anarchy’ Drama As Series’ Ratings Continue To Soar

By | Thursday October 4, 2012 @ 3:27pm PDT
Nellie Andreeva

EXCLUSIVE: The on-screen intensity of FX’s biker drama Sons Of Anarchy spilled behind the scenes yesterday. I’ve learned that SOA creator/executive producer Kurt Sutter got into a shouting match with co-star Tommy Flanagan on the set of the show. The altercation did not get physical and police were not called in as one source suggested. “Very hard day in Charming,” Sutter wrote cryptically on Twitter last night. “It’s my job to be the adult in the room. Unfortunately, today that adult was my father. Al was an angry man.”

This is not the first time sparks have flown on SOA whose dark and intense subject matter often has emotions running high behind the scenes. Last year, Sutter had a heated argument with series star Charlie Hunnam, which led to the actor’s scrapping SOA‘s panel at the summer TCA press tour. The two patched things up after a joint meeting with FX boss John Landgraf. Things on the show seemed to be back to normal again after yesterday’s incident. Sutter is back on the set as SOA is wrapping production on episode 12 of its its current fifth season. On Monday, filming of the season finale is slated to begin with Sutter directing. Read More »

EMMY SNUBS: ‘The Good Wife’, ‘The Walking Dead’, ‘Sons Of Anarchy’, John Slattery…

By | Thursday July 19, 2012 @ 10:00am PDT

Emmys voters are fickle fans and a bewildering bunch. They like a show one year, they don’t the next, or maybe they just don’t like the people who made it. And sometimes there is no rhyme or reason to who gets a nomination and who doesn’t. Here’s a look at the shows and the actors who didn’t make the cut this year but should have.

3RD UPDATE, 11:30 AM:

Sons Of Anarchy — Looks like a kinder, gentler Kurt Sutter took to Twitter today to comment on his series’ Emmy snub. The notoriously barbed showrunner offered congratulations to Anarchy‘s FX, Homeland‘s Howard Gordon and The Voice‘s Carson Daly and Adam Levine among others. Then he wrote, “and to all of you expecting a *-laced emmy diatribe…that’s so 2011. A calm, mature, rational @sutterink is much more dangerous.”


Michael PittBoardwalk Empire’s Jimmy Darmody might have taken one to the head but that doesn’t mean the actor who played him had to be left for dead by Emmy voters.


Kyra Sedgwick – It’s The Closer’s final season, so to leave out this 2010 Emmy winner seems just weird.

The Office – Its had a long run, but that’s no reason to completely leave the show out of the Comedy category.

Emmy Rossum — Besides Joan Cusack’s Best Guest Actress nod, Shameless got the shaft this year, and to overlook this Critics’ Choice winner seems another form of shamelessness. I mean her name is Emmy for Pete’s sake.


The Good Wife – The CBS series was overlooked for Best Drama, not a good sign for the broadcast networks, which lost their only representative in the category.

Glee One nomination in the Guest Acting category? That’s it?

Louie – Maybe Emmy voters have a thing with FX, what with Sons Of Anarchy totally snubbed and Justified shortshrifted this year, but how can you nominate the man who is the star and the mastermind behind a show and not his show?

Jeff Probst — The Survivor host has won the Reality Host category every year since it was created, and this year he didn’t even make the cut? Taking his spot — the ubiquitous Betty White.

Dexter No best series for one of Showtime’s best series.

The Walking Dead – Zombies are popular with viewers but obviously not Emmy voters.

Hugh Laurie — No love for his last turn as Dr. House.

Comic-Con: ‘Sons of Anarchy’s Kurt Sutter Would “Love To Do A Prequel”

By | Sunday July 15, 2012 @ 4:06pm PDT

They were the last panel of Comic-Con’s huge Hall H this year but today Sons of Anarchy gave fans of the FX biker drama a few things to look forward to. SOA creator and showrunner Kurt Sutter told the crowd today that he’d “love to do a prequel about the formation of the club.” Though he gave no details of the prequel, which he has brought up before, Sutter said today that he had discussed the idea with the show’s network FX. Before the panel came out, the thousands in the crowd were treated to a seven-minute preview of Season 5′s 90-minute September 11 opening episode. With some flashbacks to the power struggle within the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club, Redwood Original the preview started out with the Jax character writing in his journal and then revealed a long run delivery by SAMCRO on the northern California roads that gets highjacked. A pounding cover of Stevie Wonder’s Higher Ground on the soundtrack was used to set the tone. Thirty seconds of the preview were blacked out for  ”content reasons.”

EMMYS: ‘Sons Of Anarchy’s Charlie Hunnam

By | Sunday June 10, 2012 @ 1:16pm PDT

Megan Masters is West Coast Editor at TVLine

It’s tough making a gun-running, drug-dealing, murdering motorcycle gang member someone you want to root for. But Charlie Hunnam’s done it with ease Boardwalk Empireover the past four seasons of Sons of Anarchy, FX’s Hamlet-inspired slice of gritty Americana. This could be the year that the 32-year-old Brit — whose resume includes big screen Oscar contenders like Cold Mountain and small screen critical darlings like Undeclared — receives recognition for his brilliant turn as Jax Teller, the series’ tortured prince of Charming. But after some minor media missteps, Hunnam’s careful about how he talks about accolades like the Emmys. Here, he reveals what he really thinks about his chances, his co-stars’ talent, and his show’s potential legacy.
