'Sons of Anarchy' star Jimmy Smits talks Nero's heartbreaking scenes

20 November 2014 11:41 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Sons of Anarchy's Nov. 18 episode, "Suits of Woe," will go down as one of the series' finest thanks in part to the performance delivered by Jimmy Smits (Nero): First, audiences watched Nero's face as Jax (Charlie Hunnam) told him over the phone that he's learned Gemma (Katey Sagal) killed Tara. (As episode director Peter Weller told EW, "Kurt said as a tone note that he would rarely give an actor a beat where we don’t hear what he’s hearing, so it’s all played on his face, but he would definitely give that to Jimmy Smits because Jimmy Smits is unbelievable. »

'Sons of Anarchy': Inside those emotional Jax, Juice, Nero scenes

19 November 2014 5:16 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Spoiler alert: All was revealed in the Nov. 18 episode of Sons of Anarchy, "Suits of Woe," which included three of the series' finest scenes: Juice (Theo Rossi) told Jax (Charlie Hunnam) the truth about Tara's death; Jax broke the news to Nero (Jimmy Smits) over the phone as Gemma (Katey Sagal) stood by; and Jax later leaned on Nero as he struggled to understand both how his mother could kill Tara and how he could still love her. Peter Weller, who directed the episode—and whose character, Barosky, was also revealed as the rat—spoke to EW about shooting those »

Sons of Anarchy, Ep. 7.11, “Suits of Woe”: Jax comes to grips with a disturbing truth

18 November 2014 9:44 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sons of Anarchy, Season 7, Episode 11, “Suits of Woe”

Directed by Peter Weller

Written by Kurt Sutter, Mike Daniels, and Peter Elkoff

Airs Tuesdays at 10pm (Et) on FX

For an episode that has so many scenes that could all individually be described as great, this episode continues to not have enough happen in order to properly justify the run time. The majority of the action is important, but letting every scene breathe and take as much time as possible to play out undercuts the levity of the scenes where the drawn out nature of an interaction instills everything with increased emotion. Having a conversation between Gemma and Nero be the same length as one between Althea and Unser, or close to it, attempts to place them on the same level and this doesn’t make any sense. There are few transitional scenes this week, only increasingly long and drawn out »

Did Jax Just Learn the Whole Truth About Gemma on Sons of Anarchy?!

18 November 2014 8:46 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Are you able to breathe yet?! So much s--t went down on tonight's extra-long outing of Sons of Anarchy that it took us a while to realize that absolutely none of the big players died during the entire 73-minute-long episode. That's right, the only death during "Suits of Woe" was Henry Lin (Kenneth Choi), who was chained up in a boiler room in prison for Juice (Theo Rossi) to kill—after he recorded Lin's confession that it was Barosky (Peter Weller), and not Soa Indian Hills president Jury White (Michael Shamus Wiles), who sold out the club's gun stash to the Chinese. And with that final hit completed, Juice was oddly calm and ready to face his own impending death now that he was »

'Sons of Anarchy': Billy Brown has a fun story about that Bobby scene

7 November 2014 2:32 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Sons of Anarchy fans are still reeling from the Nov. 4 episode, which said goodbye to Bobby (Mark Boone Junior). But Billy Brown, the actor who plays August Marks, the Big Bad who pulled the trigger, may actually be able to cheer them up with a couple of great behind-the-scenes anecdotes. Entertainment Weekly: Did Kurt Sutter give you a heads-up that Marks would ultimately take out Bobby this season, or was it something you learned reading the script for this episode? What was your reaction? Brown: I rolled into the Sons lot on that afternoon, around the corner from the stages, »

'Sons of Anarchy' director Peter Weller talks key Bobby, Chibs scenes

5 November 2014 1:24 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Spoiler alert: The Nov. 4 episode of Sons of Anarchy, "What a Piece of Work Is Man," said goodbye to a core character and watched another make a surprising move on the hood of a cop car. (Read our postmortems with Mark Boone Junior (Bobby) and Annabeth Gish (Jarry).) Peter Weller, who directed the episode—and, of course, recurs on the series as Charlie Barosky—spoke to EW about those memorable scenes, what makes Sons special, and how the Nov. 18 episode, which he also directed, nearly destroyed him. Entertainment Weekly: How tough was it to shoot Bobby's death scene? Weller: I'm a real crybaby. »

Sons of Anarchy, Ep. 7.09, “What a Piece of Work is Man”: A club member falls

5 November 2014 9:40 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sons of Anarchy, Season 7, Episode 9, “What a Piece of Work is Man”

Directed by Peter Weller

Written by Mike Daniels, Roberto Patino, and Kurt Sutter

Airs Tuesdays at 10pm on FX

The title of this week’s Sons of Anarchy episode refers to a speech from Act II of Hamlet, in which the Prince of Denmark confesses his general malaise and depression to Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. While outlining his outlook on life, he commiserates about how many accomplishments and abilities mankind is capable of in which he cannot bring himself to take part, for lack of purpose and motivation. This lack of interest in the general goings on or excitement of the world can surely be applied to the club throughout much of this season of Sons, but is also accurate meta commentary on the way the show is spurning narrative opportunities left and right over its final stretch.

'Sons of Anarchy': Annabeth Gish talks That Jarry-Chibs scene

5 November 2014 12:41 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Spoiler alert: The Nov. 4 episode of Sons of Anarchy was a big one for Sheriff Althea Jarry (Annabeth Gish). She had a physical confrontation with Gemma (Katey Sagal), uncovered game-changing intel on Chris Dun, and asked Chibs (Tommy Flanagan) to prove he has feelings for her by "taking her" on the hood of her cop car in the parking garage in front of Quinn (Rusty Coones). EW: I'm just going to jump right in with the scene I think fans will be talking about. Do you have a guess? Gish: The sex on a cop car scene. [Laughs] Correct. I knew »

'Sons of Anarchy' star Mark Boone Junior talks Bobby's big moment

4 November 2014 10:37 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Spoiler alert: In the Nov. 4 episode of Sons of Anarchy, Jax (Charlie Hunnam) made another play to get Bobby (Mark Boone Junior) back from August Marks (Billy Brown). Bobby's fate—a bullet to the head from the gun Marks had hidden on him before the no-weapons-allowed exchange—will have surprised the fans who voted Samcro's de facto conscience the club member most likely to survive in a pre-season poll. "I took that as a great compliment that people actually wanted me to survive," Boone says. "I think that this show does surprising things more than most shows, and »

Hot Toys Battle Damage Robocop Collectible Action Figure

19 October 2014 12:01 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

"Dead or alive, you are coming with me."

Hot Toys recently revealed their 1/6 scale RoboCop collectible action figure that fans of the original movie are sure to love. The figure highlights the battle damage that the character incurred during the course of his bloody and violent adventure. It always creeped me the hell out when Murphy took off his helmet. His face on that robotic body is the thing nightmares are made of. 

Earlier this year, many fans were extremely excited to see the prototype of the new battle damaged version Robocop Collectible Figure at a number of toy fairs! In addition to the wonderfully crafted battle damage effect, it is the first ever official 1/6th scale collectible figure that features the likeness of Peter Weller! Today, we are proud to officially present the highly-anticipated 1/6th scale RoboCop (Battle Damaged Version) Collectible Figure!

An Interview with Martial Arts Film Legend Gary Daniels

Manny Camacho interviews action film star Gary Daniels

Waking up at 4:30 Am is not something many of us like to do. Waking up to go to work at such an ungodly hour is usually far worse. However, waking up at this ungodly hour to go to work because I get to interview a martial art and action star I grew up watching…that is a treat!

Gary Daniels is a prolific actor and martial artist that has been in films on both sides of the pond for over 25 years. He got his start with a variety of talented people in the industry like Jackie Chan, Don “The Dragon” Wilson, Lorenzo Lamas, Richard Norton, Malcolm McDowell, Costas Mandylor and a variety of others.

I remember first seeing him on screen as one of the villains in Jackie Chan’s City Hunter, opposite Chan as the main opposition protecting the main antagonist, »

Hellboy, Robocop, The Punisher and Jaa ply Skin Trade

13 October 2014 9:26 AM, PDT | | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Director Ekachai Uekrongtham (The Coffin) changes direction with his latest movie, a collaboration with Thai superstar Tony Jaa. It's been a long time since Jaa had a bona fide hit on his hands, and there's little chance of this one breaking the mould, however, he is joined by some awesome talent. Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables) shares top-billing with the pintsized wonder, but he's not the only big Hollywood star to make an appearance. Sons of Anarchy regulars are currently seeking new employment, which means the likes of Ron Perlman (Hellboy) and Peter Weller (Robocop) have some free time on their hands. Michael Jai White, fresh from Arrow duties, more than makes up the numbers in this decent looking action movie. Set in and around Bangkok, we'll bring you more information when we have it. For now though, check out the impressive trailer. Guilty pleasures don't come around that often these days. »

Negotiations Over! First official trailer for Skin Trade with Dolph Lundgren and Tony Jaa

11 October 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With a host of films in the pipeline involving sharks, War Pigs, and other purveyors of carnage, Dolph Lundgren has a lot on his plate, but before that there’s the small matter of Skin Trade, the pet project that’s taken him over six years to get off the ground. An early 2015 release date is expected and the first official trailer has just gone live.

Lundgren stars as Nick Cassidy, whose family is killed by Serbian Gangster Viktor Dragovic (Ron Perlman). Cassidy tracks Viktor to Bangkok where he teams up with local police detective Tony (Tony Jaa). The pair set about bringing an end to Viktor’s sex trafficking operation once and for all. Judging by the trailer a lot of cans of whoop-ass will get opened.

Co-starring with Lundgren will be Tony Jaa (who will also be seen in Fast & Furious 7), Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Peter Weller (RoboCop), Michael Jai White »

First Proper Skin Trade Trailer Teams Dolph Lundgren And Tony Jaa In Thailand

11 October 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Dolph Lundgren is very much the star in the first official trailer for Skin Trade, directed by Ekachai Uekrongtham (Beautiful Boxer), but Tony Jaa is lurking in the background, ready to strike fear into the hearts of men with his fists and his feet. Lundgren and Jaa play two cops who team up to take down Ron Perlman, an evil human trafficker who fled the United States after killing Lundgren's family and is hiding in Thailand. That allows for plenty of action, occasional flying bodies, and an explosion or two. Michael Jai White co-stars, plus the dependable Peter Weller is present to dispense authoritative commands. The film is aiming for a 2015 release. If the action is as consistently good as what's depicted in the trailer, this could...

Sons of Anarchy, Ep. 7.05, “Some Strange Eruption: Jax escapes unscathed again

9 October 2014 7:41 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »














Sons of Anarchy Season 7, Episode 5, “Some Strange Eruption”

Directed by Peter Weller

Written by Kurt Sutter & Robert0 Patino

Airs Tuesdays at 10pm on FX

“Nothing defends what happened here.”

Jax’s early declaration to Nero about his shock that Lin would go so far as an act of revenge is the first time in a while he has shown any true concern for the people around him. It also comes off as incredibly naive in that even if the murder of sixteen innocent people is indefensible, the reason it even came to retaliation in the first place stems from his actions first and foremost. His inability to understand how his actions affect an ever-widening pool of people is quickly becoming a theme here, but without any real consequences for the club or his life.

Most of this episode consists of yet another round of table setting before anything of significance even occurs, »

Recap: 'Sons of Anarchy' - 'Some Strange Eruption'

7 October 2014 8:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Haven’t caught up on Tuesday’s newest “Sons of Anarchy?” Well snuff out that post-sex cigarette, cover up those chest tattoos and don’t promise someone there will be no more dead bodies, because well … we all know that’s bull. Have you watched this show before? Indeed, the body count on “Some Strange Eruption” continued to climb, but it was also an episode where very clear lines were drawn and loyalties were established. Sheriff Jarry told Unser it was time to decide if he was one of the good guys. Lin demanded Nero pick between the Chinese and the Sons. And Gemma—worst mother of the year Gemma, had to make a decision of “Mice and Men” proportions that blew up in her face. I’d say that halfway through the final season, it’s all pretty much on track.  The episode opened with another musical montage to »
