Guess who's back?
Tuesday's episode of Sons of Anarchy featured the return of Venus Van Dam, the transgender escort played by Justified's Walton Goggins in each of the FX drama's last two seasons. But this time things went to a whole new level.
When Jax (Charlie Hunnam) needed to track down the wife of a preacher the club had killed, he called on Venus to help. (Turns out the dead man was one of Venus' frequent clients.) According to Goggins, coming back for Sons' final season was a no-brainer. "I look for any opportunity to put on high heels honestly," Goggins tells TVGuide.com with a laugh....

There are very few episodes of any show that I have had to literally stop and take a few minutes after watching to decompress before I can even form words to describe it – tonight’s episode of Sons of Anarchy was one of them. Although the title “Poor Little Lambs” sounds more like something you might see scrolling through a list of Pretty Little Liars episodes, it makes perfect sense when the credits roll (since “Like Lambs to the Slaughter” might have been a tad too graphic).
Sons of Anarchy set us up, in the simplest terms. Viewers were drawn in as Jax (Charlie Hunnam) attempted to pick up the pieces of his post-Tara life in a very aggressive manner, but overall, the first three episodes of the season were unapologetically lacklustre. Sure, there were some great chase scenes and plenty of brutality (and irony) to go around, but in terms of actual story, »

Until that long-awaited trailer arrived, much of the adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey had been kept under wraps. The filmmakers are really trying to keep this film to themselves – probably because we have until Valentine’s Day 2015 before it actually arrives in cinemas so they don’t want people to find out too much too soon.
So, with the book by E.L. James dividing readers across the globe, will Fifty Shades Of Grey be the kind of adaptation which actually garners more popularity than the source text? The book seems to be loved and hated in equal measure so it will be interesting to see if people feel that in this case, contrary to the norm, the film was far better than the book.

Courtney Love Films 'Soa'
Love, who plays preschool teacher Ms. Harrison on Sons of Anarchy, wore a blue-patterned dress with a tan cardigan for the day of shooting. The scene that the 50-year-old rocker was filming was with series regular Katey Sagal, who plays Gemma Teller on FX's hit biker gang drama starring British export Charlie Hunnam.
On day of filming earlier this month, Love took to Twitter to praise her costar Sagal, calling the TV veteran “gracious.”
Gracious lady @KateySagal so gracious. Thank you so much #Soa #Samcro

While Sons of Anarchy just aired its third episode of the show’s seventh and final season, Love has yet to appear. She’ll make her debut as Jax’s (Hunnam) son Abel’s preschool teacher in “Poor Little Lambs, »
Sons of Anarchy kicked off Tuesday night towards the end of Lyla shooting a scene for Redwoody’s first adult film DVD, which proves tame by comparison to the bloodletting to come.
Sons of Anarchy Recap
Chibs (Tommy Flanagan) and Tig (Kim Coates) are nearly besides themselves, while Jax (Charlie Hunnam) appreciatively calls Lyla, who was working behind the camera, a “genius.” Interrupting the celebration is August Marks (Billy Brown), who has pulled up to the lot outside. Marks has heard about the Chinese shipment getting hit and he’s more or less convinced that Samcro is behind it. He’s not buying that the two muscle men ran the operation, as he knows that the Chinese lost 4 kilos of heroin, not two. Threatening Jax, he says he’ll have no problem killing him or any of the other Sons.
Instead of meeting with Tully (Marilyn Manson) as planned, Jax »
Although Samcro has sidestepped their plans to become a legitimate organization, they haven’t left the porn industry behind. “Playing with Monsters” started by showcasing the more “normal” aspects of Jax’s (Charlie Hunnam) life, before throwing viewers directly back into the mayhem. Sons of Anarchy also used Cara Cara as the backdrop for some far less amusing scenes later on in the episode, those of which became the catalyst for a meet-and-greet with the new sheriff in town – an event that took a surprising and altogether confusing turn.
Charming has gone through several main law enforcement agents over the seasons. The writers have never shied away from using and abusing their characters, and those wearing a badge have been consistent targets of this treatment. Unser (Dayton Callie) was pushed out of office, Hale and Roosevelt (and Agent Stahl) were killed, and now the writers are trying their luck with »

In Scorpion, Keogh plays the father of central character Walter O’Brien, a bona fide genius that assembles a team to help the government fight global terrorist organizations. As Keogh explained exclusively to uInterview, “[Scorpion] is based on the true story about a gentleman called Walter O'Brien - who is an Irish guy, a genius - and he is hired by the U.S. government as one part of a crack team.”
Keogh added, "He's got a group of guys who are all geniuses also, and it just follows his journeys on a week-to-week basis. They've solved problems that the existing administration could not."
Keogh went on to reveal that his character appears in the pilot, »
During a recent Ama Reddit, Idris Elba set straight a couple of casting rumours. It turns out that despite being considered a definite part of the project, he will not be appearing in Guy Ritchie’s next film, Knights Of The Roundtable: King Arthur.
Set to have been joining the re-imagining of the classic tale as a new-fangled Merlin, he dismissed the rumours. While it’s a bit of a letdown, here’s what he had to say:
“Unfortunately I’m not in the ‘King Arthur’ movies. That was a rumor, that wasn’t true unfortunately. But I wish the guys a lot of success.”
By the guys, he’s referring to director Ritchie and his two leading stars. Sons Of Anarchy‘s Charlie Hunnam has signed on to play the titular King, with French actress Astrid Berges-Frisbey joining him at his side as Guinevere.

Exclusive: Warner Bros and Guy Ritchie have set French actress Astrid Berges-Frisbey to play Guinevere in Knights Of The Roundtable: King Arthur. The casting comes after the studio set Sons Of Anarchy‘s Charlie Hunnam as King Arthur.
Berges-Frisbey was in the cast of Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. She was born in Spain, grew up in France and started on French TV in 2007. She had to learn English when she was cast as the mermaid Syrena in the Pirates blockbuster. Since Joby Harold wrote this to span as many as six installments, this is potentially a major star-making role for the young actress.
Berges-Frisby is repped by CAA, Untitled and Artmedia.

Astrid Berges-Frisbey is in talks to play Guinevere, the iconic lover of Arthur Pendragon, in Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur, Warner Bros.’ epic retelling of the British legend. Charlie Hunnam is starring as Arthur, the young man whose journey to the throne the Guy Ritchie-directed movie is recounting. Idris Elba is already on board as Bedivere, the right-hand man of Arthur’s father, who teaches the lad how to be a leader. Guinevere, of course, is Arthur’s ladylove, who eventually betrays him for the knight Lancelot, creating a messy triangle that contributes to the downfall of

There’s no doubt that one of the hottest basic cable lineups belongs to FX. The channel as a whole is home to some of the boldest shows, and in its 20th year, it still takes major risks. The network has been rewarded with plenty of fans — who come back season after season, show after show, to not only see great scripted dramas and hilarious comedies but also some of the sexiest men on TV. There’s a reason Sons of Anarchy is such a major success: Charlie Hunnam. (Why else would he have originally landed the role of Christian Grey in film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey?) And then there are all the men in Ryan Murphy‘s rotating cast of American Horror Story. Joining Denis O’Hare and Evan Peters this season are Finn Wittrock (The Normal Heart) and Wes Bentley (The Hunger Games »

Drea de Matteo is a little sad. She’s finally become a regular cast member on Sons of Anarchy as Wendy, Jax’s ex-junkie baby mama, and the show is riding off the air at the end of its current seventh season. “Now that I’m in there, I want to keep going!” de Matteo says. At least she’s getting lots of juicy scenes as she helps Jax (Charlie Hunnam) raise their son, Abel, as well as Thomas, his infant boy with now-dead old lady Tara (Maggie Siff). The Queens, New York, native talked to Vulture about Wendy’s life expectancy, The Sopranos’ still-controversial finale, and why she’s “too much of a whore for network TV!”Wendy busted herself out of rehab after 9 of 90 days. Is it possible she’s cleaned up her act or will this turn out to be a bad decision?Well, I don’t know. »

Sons of Anarchy returned last week with a slow, but poignant start. For one, Jax (Charlie Hunnam) exacted his revenge on the man he thought was most directly responsible for Tara’s death in a most gruesome fashion (I don’t know about you, but I won’t be eating fortune cookies anytime soon). Elsewhere, Gemma (Katey Sagal) skated through the first hurdle in throwing everyone off the possibility that she had anything to do with the unfortunate events, all while protecting Juice (Theo Rossi). And, Unser (Dayton Callie) scored himself an interesting new position back on the “right” side of the law.
On tonight’s episode, “Toil and Till,” Jax laid out his detailed plan to take down Lin and his operation, as part of his epic supply of payback for Tara’s murder. It’s more than a little unsettling to watch all of his carefully laid out »

"Sons of Anarchy" had its record-breaking Season 7 premiere last week, making the beloved biker drama's final season even more real (and heartbreaking) for the show's fans.
If there's one "Soa" character that stands out from the pack as a fan favorite, it's Alex "Tig" Trager. The wild, violent, and freaky biker has been a source of bloody entertainment and comic relief throughout the show's run. And we wouldn't have Tig without actor Kim Coates.
Coates has been working on film, stage, and TV for decades, and his career doesn't appear to be slowing down any time soon. The versatile Canadian-born actor has appeared in everything from "Entourage" to "Waterworld" to "A Streetcar Named Desire" on Broadway.
Moviefone had the chance to chat with Coates about what fans will see this season on "Sons of Anarchy," as the show comes to its bittersweet end. He also revealed a bit of what »

It's too bad for FX that motorcycle drama "Sons of Anarchy" is signing off after this season: Its season premiere just set a record as the most-watched episode in the network's history.
The Hollywood Reporter writes that the September 9 debut of the show's seventh and final season has pulled in a whopping 9.25 million viewers, with live-plus-three day viewing factored in. And with encore presentations also added to the calculations, as well as views on the FXNow streaming app, the episode has already notched 10.6 million views in less than a week.
And the jaw-dropping numbers don't stop there. THR writes that compared to the "Sons" series premiere back in 2008, which scored 2.82 million viewers, the audience for last week's episode had increased by 228 percent. Yes, you read that correctly: 228 percent. Yowza.
We're doubting that Kurt Sutter and co. can be convinced to keep "Sons" around for an extra season in light of these stellar numbers, »

Created by Kurt Sutter (The Shield), the hit FX series Sons Of Anarchy follows the lives of a close-knit outlaw motorcycle club operating in a fictional town in Northern California's Central Valley.

The Mc must confront threats from drug dealers, corporate developers, and overzealous law officers.
