With only two more seasons left, following this current one, to tell the show’s story, things are getting very, very real on the hit FX drama series Sons of Anarchy. Never one to shy away from going there when the story calls for it, show creator Kurt Sutter did just that, in the game-changing episode “Laying Pipe,” opening up emotional ramifications for the rest of the season.
During this recent interview to discuss the events of that episode, executive producer Kurt Sutter talked about when he knew the character’s fate and how the actor found out, the motivations for the character’s actions, the mood on set while shooting that scene, how it will affect Jax’s (Charlie Hunnam) leadership and the emotional relationships of the club going forward, what’s to come for Juice (Theo Rossi), whether audiences will ever soften to Damon Pope (Harold Perrineau), whether a confrontation between Jax and Clay (Ron Perlman) is inevitable, and why seven seasons is the right amount of time to tell this story.

The intense, gripping drama series Sons of Anarchy has become the most-watched series for FX and has developed a devoted fan base rivaled by few other TV shows currently on the air. So, it was no surprise that it was honored at the 29th Annual William S. Paley Television Festival, saluting excellence in programming.
During the March 7th panel, a few hints were given about story direction and character development for Season 5 (the most notable of which was that it will pick up about a month after where Season 4 left off), which starts shooting in May with a September premiere date, and an update was given about a possible prequel series. Hit the jump to see the highlights of what show creator Kurt Sutter (“Otto”), along with cast members Katey Sagal (“Gemma”), Theo Rossi (“Juice”), Tommy Flanagan (“Chibs”), Dayton Callie (“Unser”), David Labrava (“Happy”) and Michael Ornstein (“Chucky”), had to say:
On Season 4 of the popular FX drama Sons of Anarchy, viewers are getting to learn more about the personal history and relationships of many of the SAMCRO members that they’ve only gotten to catch glimpses of, up until now. Once such character is Juan Carlos Ortiz, otherwise known as Juice, who has been a fan favorite since the series debuted. As things heat up and loyalties are called into question, Juice will be more in the line of fire than ever.
During a recent interview to promote the series and talk about the evolution of his character, actor Theo Rossi hinted at what’s ahead for Juice, how pleased he was to learn about the direction things would be headed in this season, that Juice isn’t the typical biker but that doesn’t make him any less loyal to the club, and that what he’s learned from his co-stars is invaluable to him, both personally and professionally.

The hit FX drama Sons of Anarchy is back for Season 4, with the boys of SAMCRO fresh out of jail after a 14-month stint and arriving back in Charming, California to find that their town not only has new, no-nonsense law enforcement, but a mayor who is determined to change things. While the club is faced with a decision that could challenge everything they’ve always stood for, Jax (Charlie Hunnam) is forced to start thinking about what’s best for his family.
During this recent exclusive interview with Collider, co-stars Kim Coates (“Tig”), Ryan Hurst (“Opie”) and Theo Rossi (“Juice”), who also play three of the most intriguing club members, talked about what it’s been like to collaborate on the development of their roles for four seasons now, how the strength of the acting makes the viewers want to know absolutely everything about the characters, what makes bikers so attractive and interesting to people, how they’ve loved taking the journey that show creator Kurt Sutter and the writing staff has led them on, and how the crew dedicates everything to helping make the show the #1-rated series in FX history.

As part of my visit to the set of the FX show “Sons of Anarchy” I was able to participate in several roundtable interviews with members of the cast. First up were Ryan Hurst (Opie), Theo Rossi (Juice), Kim Coates (Tig), and Mark Boone Junior (Bobby), all of whom play important secondary roles on the show. The guys talked about the direction their characters were headed during the second season, sitting down with show creator Kurt Sutter to discuss their own ideas for the development of their characters, and the seriously badass bikes that Harley Davidson custom built for their own personal enjoyment.
