'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. »

Annabeth Gish on Being Sons of Anarchy’s Bad Cop

19 November 2014 12:41 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

There’s a new sheriff in town for Sons of Anarchy’s final season: Annabeth Gish’s Althea Jarry, a corrupt Charming, California, cop who’s been sleeping with the would-be enemy, Samcro gang-member Chibs (Tommy Flanagan). The X-Files and Bridge alum spoke with Vulture about her controversial Soa sex scenes, her reunion with fellow West Wing–er Jimmy Smits, and the legacy of Mystic Pizza.You seemed to make a seamless transition between FX’s The Bridge and Sons of Anarchy this season. How did that play out? It was my good luck that I was killed on The Bridge and went directly over to another fantastic, provocative FX show. They use their actors like a kind of rep company — you see Walton Goggins on Justified and Sons. They cast such amazing actors who can transform. It was so great to join the show in its last season, and in such a pivotal role. »

Sons Of Anarchy season 7 episode 11 review: Suits Of Woe

19 November 2014 8:16 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

This week's episode goes a long way to restoring fans' goodwill towards Sons Of Anarchy. Here's Gabriel's review...

This review contains spoilers.

7.11 Suits Of Woe

About halfway through Suits Of Woe, I was reminded of Ozymandias, Breaking Bad’s third-to-last episode. That is not to say that this instalment of Sons Of Anarchy was remotely in the same ballpark as that superlative hour of television, but the two episodes shared a lot in common, in the best way possible. Without spoiling anything for the Breaking Bad uninitiated, Ozymandias marked the moment that Walter White’s dark empire began to fall apart, and in many ways tonight was that moment for both Gemma and Jax.

In Gemma’s case, it was a very literal destruction, as one by one all the people she cares about learn the truth of what she did to Tara, and in the end she is left »

'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 »

‘Sons of Anarchy 7×11: Suits of Woe’ Review

18 November 2014 9:01 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

I gave up on writing about Sons of Anarchy because, frankly, I felt I covered everything in my advance review. It was the same machinations, with once reasonably intelligent characters doing dumb things and following blindly in the footsteps of Jax Teller (whose reign at the head of the table is far more violent and vicious than anything Clay Morrow did, but another day for that one, huh?). But as the season’s gone on and gotten so bloated that I’m worried how long the actual finale will be (this episode, the 11th is the longest of the season at 72:56, slightly shorter than a film), I’ve slightly come around on this season. Slightly. It’s still a show that relies on machinations, poor plotting (even when it’s trying to be clever), and acting that varies wildly. It’s also damned ugly, look at the rape scene between Ron Tully and Juice, »

Sons of Anarchy Recap: This, That and the Mother Thing

18 November 2014 8:39 PM, PST | | See recent news »

“If you gave a s—t about Tara, maybe you’d spend a little less time being a thug, and a little more time being a dad.”

That brutal honesty, delivered to Jax via Unser on Tuesday’s Sons of Anarchy, is a criticism that many of you have offered in TVLine’s comments section this season for Samcro’s tortured president.

Throughout the past 10 episodes, Jax has concealed his heartache about Tara’s death with violence, blindly retaliating against the Chinese and August Marks after Gemma pinned her crime on someone else. He hasn’t visited his wife’s »

Sons Of Anarchy Review: “Suits Of Woe” (Season 7, Episode 11)

18 November 2014 8:00 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Samcro is feeling the heat – and not just because they live in a fictional town in California. Even with all his best intentions in tow, Jax (Charlie Hunnam) has managed to drag his club into a chaos that rivals anything the Sons of Anarchy have encountered under previous leadership. And, that’s saying a lot considering his predecessor was Clay (Ron Perlman). For better or worse, Sons of Anarchy is headed into the final leg of a long journey where with Kurt Sutter at the helm, anything is still possible – within reason.

It feels a little wrong to keep mentioning the ticking clock that the writers are working under, but it’s hard not to point it out when the end is so close that you can almost feel the narrative slowly collapsing in on itself. All of the elements of Sons of Anarchy are starting to converge to create »

'Sons of Anarchy': Drea de Matteo on the 'first mommy' reveal

12 November 2014 6:26 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Spoiler alert: Tuesday night's episode of Sons of Anarchy ended with Jax telling Abel that Wendy was his "first mommy"—and Abel later telling Jax that Gemma killed Tara. While we wait to see what Jax does with that information, and what role Wendy plays in his investigation, EW spoke with Drea de Matteo about Wendy's emotion in that moment, her feelings for Jax, the backstory de Matteo created for her, and her relationship with Gemma (and Nero).

Watch Conan O’Brien's Laughable Sons Of Anarchy Cold Open

12 November 2014 12:32 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

If you missed Conan's amazing Sons of Anarchy show last night, you're in for a treat. The episode included guests such as Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter and stars Charlie Hunnam, Theo Rossi, Tommy Flanagan, Kim CoatesMark Boone Junior, Drea de Matteo, and Jimmy Smits. This actually may have been the best show Conan O'Brien has done so far. But that might be because I'm also a fan of Sons of Anarchy. One of my favorite parts of the show was the hilarious cold opening that featured O'Brien decked out as a badass biker looking for trouble, and he finds it. O'Brien looks ridiculous in it. This might just be one of the funniest things you see today. I also included an amusing tourist commercial for the fictional town in Sons of Anarchy, Charming, CA, that Conan showed his audience. Enjoy!

'Sons of Anarchy' makeup artist explains how you take out an eye

11 November 2014 10:09 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Spoiler alert: The Nov. 11 episode of Sons of Anarchy found Jax taking the expression "an eye for an eye" literally: After ambushing Moses (Mathew St. Patrick) and his men, he ripped out Moses' eyeball, which dangled out of its socket. (Chibs then cut off Moses' fingers before Jax put a bullet in his head, mirroring the fate Bobby had suffered.) The eye was stomach-turning and awesome, which is why we asked Sons' head of makeup Tracey Anderson how she did it.   First, she got a stock hanging eyeball and eye socket from W.M. Creations, Oscar and Emmy winner Matthew W. Mungle's company. »

Watch: Conan O’Brien Greets ‘Sons of Anarchy’ Cast by Channeling His Inner Biker

11 November 2014 6:41 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The cast and creator of “Sons of Anarchy” will appear on TBS’ “Conan” Tuesday night in their first group talk show appearance and, to commemorate, Conan O’Brien decided to try out the biker lifestyle.

In the cold open for the episode, O’Brien dons a Samcro leather vest and hits the road on a motorcycle. Though he looks cool enough, it doesn’t end up too well — the host is thrown out a window, and eventually resorts to riding on a children’s bicycle.

The video also parodies the show’s iconic opening credits, though it seems a lot less tough with Conan and co. involved.

Series creator Kurt Sutter and stars Charlie Hunnam, Tommy Flanagan, Jimmy Smits, Drea de Matteo, Mark Boone Junior and more will join the show to talk about the current seventh and final season.

The episode featuring the “Sons of Anarchy” appearance will air on TBS Tuesday at 11 p. »

Mark Boone Junior on Sons of Anarchy and Steve Buscemi

4 November 2014 8:40 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

(Spoiler Alert: This post contains major plot points from this week’s episode of Sons of Anarchy, “What a Piece of Work Is Man,” as well as Boardwalk Empire’s series finale. Read at your own risk.)It was the most upsetting death of a TV Bobby since NYPD Blue’s Bobby Simone (Jimmy Smits): Sons of Anarchy’s lovably lethal Bobby Munson (Mark Boone Junior) was gunned down by rival gang leader August Marks (Billy Brown) after being held captive and tortured over the past two episodes. Boone chatted with Vulture about Bobby’s final ride. When did you get the call that Bobby was going down?A long time ago. I think it was in August. So I’ve been living with this for a while. Did you figure it was coming eventually?I believe I heard along the way that Everyone Dies! Everyone in general or everyone on Sons of Anarchy? »

Sons Of Anarchy Review: “What A Piece Of Work Is Man” (Season 7, Episode 9)

4 November 2014 8:15 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sons of Anarchy is making a sprint all the way to the end, and “What a Piece of Work is Man” gives the show one more unfriendly push along its way. There’s no accounting for the lengths that Kurt Sutter will go to for a good story, even if that means saying goodbye to a main character so close to the end, and the loss that Samcro has suffered tonight will surely set the tone for the rest of the season.

Gemma (Katey Sagal) has to be feeling the weight of the world on her shoulders after this episode. Her actions have dominoed into unforeseen waters, and landed right back on her front door. It was one thing when the collateral damage was limited to outsiders. Pinning Tara’s (Maggie Siff) murder on Lin and his guys, arbitrarily selecting the guy who would take the fall for doing the deed, »
