TheWrap traveled the globe to cover the world of entertainment in 2014 and sat down with some of Hollywood’s biggest stars to drink, laugh and even get slapped across the face.
Whether it was “Cake” star Jennifer Aniston taking on executive editor Joseph Kapsch in a quiz about herself at TheWrap’s new home base in Santa Monica or “Beside Still Waters” director Chris Lowell literally getting slap-happy with film reporter Jeff Sneider, 2014 was filled with memorable on-screen moments.

Spoilersa favorite drama, where Shakespeare’s Hamlet themes fornicated with classic Grindhouse and Pulp Fiction genres, “Sons of Anarchy” on FX has finally come to an end.No longer can we look forward to lingering frames of man-ass, Tig’s (Kim Coates) intense glare or Chib’s (Tommy Flanagan) nearly indecipherable bucking up. Those of us who hung in there for the whole run still miss Piney’s (William Lucking) “Church” side-eyes and his son Opie’s (Ryan Hurst) Zen moments of centering lead character Jax (Charlie Hunnam) who ended the series in a Big Bang. Sons of Anarchy was brought to life by showrunner Kurt Sutter, who played a key […] »

Sons of Anarchy has enjoyed a nice seven-year run of biker politics, Oedipal weirdness, and trolling of weak-stomached fans, but all that ends next Tuesday, December 9th, with the show's presumably uplifting finale. To commemorate the occasion, we challenged three original castmembers—Katey Sagal, Theo Rossi, and Kim Coates—to explain everything that happened over the course of the series. They had varying degrees of success. »

Sons of Anarchy fans will be seeing even more of Juice (Theo Rossi), Tig (Kim Coates), and Unser (Dayton Callie) during commercial breaks on FX and Fox Cable Networks. The actors don their costumes for a new PSA on behalf of the Boot Campaign, a national nonprofit that encourages Americans to purchase and lace up a pair of signature military combat boots as a sign of support for those who serve in the U.S. Armed Forces. Fulfilling the Boot Campaign's motto, "When They Come Back, We Give Back," retail sales along with donations and corporate sponsorships fund six initiatives »

A moment of high praise for FX’s top drama, “Sons of Anarchy,” riding off into the sunset this year as Sutter’s Hamlet on Harleys says goodbye to characters like Gemma (Katey Sagal), Jax (Charlie Hunnam), Tig (Kim Coates), Bobby (Mark Boone Junior), Juice (Theo Rossi), Wendy (Drea de Matteo), Unser (Dayton Callie) and Chuckie (Michael Ornstein) among many stellar acting peers who have served showrunner Kurt Sutter well over the seven years it aired on the network. Sutter even played a pivotal Samcro character – Otto Delaney – in the series.Even FX chief exec John Landgraf’s wife Ally Walker was […] »

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, »

A weekly feature in which we spotlight shining stars
The Performer | Karen Gillan
The Show | Selfie
The Episode | “Here’s This Guy”
The Airdate | November 11, 2014
The Performance | ABC’s recent decision to cancel its freshman sitcom Selfie is, on many levels, as cruel and capricious as a hunter taking a shot at a baby bird making its maiden flight from the nest.
Ratings (and dubious title) aside, the cute-but-uneven rom-com that premiered in September has seen its heart triple, perhaps even quadruple, in size over the course of seven episodes — in no small part due to the goofy commitment and »
If you're a Sons of Anarchy fan who can't stop talking about the performances Walton Goggins and Kim Coates delivered in that beautiful bedroom conversation between Venus and Tig in the Nov. 11 episode, you are not alone. Executive producer Paris Barclay, who directed "Faith and Despondency," phoned EW Radio from Wales on Wednesday to rave about what he considers to be possibly the best performance by any two actors in the FX drama's seven seasons. Listen to the clip below. "There was really true love there, and when it was done, the crew just stopped and applauded them," Barclay says. »

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 Coates, Mark 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, Season 7, Episode 10, “Faith and Despondency”
Directed by Paris Barclay
Written by Kurt Sutter
Airs Tuesdays at 10pm (Et) on FX
Lo, the grandmother’s comeuppance begins not in the form of blackmail from a member of Samcro, nor an outside party seeking revenge. No, it comes at last from her own flesh and blood. Abel, who this episode goes a long way towards transitioning from “devil spawn” to “devil spawn with revenge blinders on”, single-handedly starts the avalanche that will doom Gemma in the end. The first half of “Faith and Despondency” lays the seeds well, not playing an obvious hand as to whether the reveal would come in the confines of this episode or if it would be pushed until next week again. By the last third, however, the dread builds slowly but surely until Jax’s bedtime visit could not reasonably culminate in anything besides »

Still up after that oh-so-long episode of “Sons of Anarchy?” Well tuck the kids in tight and be sure to hide all the forks because finally—finally the moment we’ve all been waiting for happened. Or, did it? Tuesday night’s “Faith and Despondency” took a long time getting there (arguably an entire season, let alone this supersized episode), but by the closing seconds Jax finally heard the truth that we’ve wanted him to hear for weeks now: that his mother was the one who killed Tara. And he heard it from Abel no less. At this point in the season I was ready for the truth to come from anyone, but there’s something poetic about a five-year-old being in the know regarding Gemma’s true ways while Jax continues to be blind about them despite everything she’s done. Not having seen the previews for next week, »

Spoiler alert: In the Nov. 11 episode of Sons of Anarchy, "Faith and Despondency," Venus (Walton Goggins) and Tig (Kim Coates) took their relationship to the next level—then almost called it quits. The always eloquent Goggins, who's recurred as the transgender escort for three seasons, talked to EW about filming their emotional conversation—and where he thinks Venus and Tig went afterward. Bonus for Justified fans, he also got us psyched for that show's final season, which premieres in January. (He's about to start shooting episode six.) EW: Venus and Tig's heart-to-heart follows Jarry and Chibs' combative love scene. It »

Does “Too Many Cooks” mean everything or nothing? "What did it all mean?” asks Ian Crook. "Maybe everything: it was a postmodern satire of television and Web culture, a commentary on the power of nostalgia, a glimpse at the violence that lurks within us all. Perhaps it was a deconstruction on the very idea of virality itself: it’s the Internet that has too many cooks, and all of us, together, with our sharing and repeated clever comments and urge to be the first to share what thousands of others have already shared, have spoiled the broth. Or else it meant nothing, and quit it, you dummies.” Plus: “Too Many Cooks” is the smartest critique of our changing TV landscape, it subverts our expectations of nostalgia, the "definitive" ranking of every character, “Too Many Cooks” creator says "I hate to talk about it too much,” “Too Many Cooks” is set in Denver, »

FX's Sons of Anarchy aftershow, Anarchy Afterword, returns to FX tonight following episode 10, and fans will be happy to see who's at the head of the table.

It’s been a pretty crazy week for Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter, as he had to have his appendix suddenly removed during the middle of shooting the series finale of the show. However, after having longtime Sons director Paris Barclay fill in for him while he was recovering, Sutter returned to set on Wednesday and continued his directing duties until last night, when Sutter, the cast, and crew all finished filming the Sons of Anarchy finale. Sutter let fans know that they had wrapped on the final episode by posting the tweet below. That’s a wrap. Thank you. #soa#finalridehttp://t.co/TGYgugPNfI — kurt sutter (@sutterink) October 31, 2014 Although the final scenes of on the Sons of Anarchy finale finished last night, some of the show’s main actors had already had their last days on set.

Watch out, Conan O'Brien; you have a rough bunch coming your way. “Sons of Anarchy” creator Kurt Sutter and the cast of FX's biker drama will appear on TBS's “Conan” on Nov. 11, marking the group's first-ever joint talk-show appearance.
