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

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. FX's original series, Sons Of Anarchy, is an adrenalized drama with darkly comedic undertones that explores a notorious outlaw motorcycle club's (Mc) desire to protect its livelihood while ensuring that their simple, sheltered town of Charming, California remains exactly that, Charming. The Mc must confront threats from drug dealers, corporate developers, and overzealous law officers. Behind the Mc's familial lifestyle and legally thriving automotive shop is a ruthless and illegally thriving arms business. The seduction of money, power and blood. Sons Of Anarchy stars Charlie Hunnam, Katey »

Sons of Anarchy portrays the fictionalised world of an outlaw motorcycle club; although the plots are dramatic in the extreme, many of the details are firmly based in realism, including the costuming. Series creator Kurt Sutter has described it as pure soap opera, but this family drama has earned the tag of “Hamlet on Motorcycles”. It has been embraced by pop culture and by the biker community, and spurred an upsurge in sales of Harley Davidsons (and a $25k Soa branded bike).
Motorcycle club culture took off after WW2, when returning veterans with experience of riding bikes on service, and often undiagnosed post-traumatic stress, took to the lifestyle looking for the camaraderie and thrills their return from war had left them missing. The press quickly seized on the growth of these groups (top tip: don’t ever call an Mc a gang) and brewed some good old-fashioned hysteria about anti-social »

‘No Good Deed’ movie going unpunished to top weekend box office? (photo: Idris Elba in ‘No Good Deed’) Apologies for the bad wordplay above, but if Friday estimates are a reliable indicator, No Good Deed should indeed go unpunished to the top of the domestic box office this weekend, September 12-14, 2014. But why "unpunished"? Well, so far the Sam Miller-directed thriller starring four-time Emmy nominee Idris Elba (Luther) and Best Supporting Actress Academy Award nominee Taraji P. Henson (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) has a downright putrid 10% score and 2.6/10 average among Rotten Tomatoes‘ top critics. Sony Pictures, whose subsidiary ScreenGems is distributing No Good Deed, reportedly opted to skip late Thursday screenings to ensure that the film’s plot twist would be kept under wraps. More likely, however, it was the critics’ derisive remarks that Sony wanted under wraps. For instance: "The final plot twist is about as »

Fifty Shades director Sam Taylor-Johnson and star Dornan reunited last night (September 11) for 'Second Floor', a new photographic exhibition showcasing the artist and filmmaker's work.

Sons of Anarchy’s season 7 premiere will be remembered for the brutality of the final scene, but as is so often the case with this show, there was also beauty in it. Exec producer Paris Barclay, who directed the episode, called into “News & Notes” on EW Radio (SiriusXM 105) and shared how the idea for a rainy night in Charming—a rare occurrence—came about. He always reads Kurt Sutter’s scripts slowly, so he can try to visualize what he’s created.
“Even though it wasn’t in the script, I just imagined it was raining for some unknown reason. »

If you haven’t watched Sons of Anarchy’s season 7 premiere, stop reading now. If you have, you’ve probably found yourself wondering about the actor who played Chris Dun, the Lin Triad member Gemma framed for Tara’s murder. It’s the first and only appearance for 32-year-old Tim Park on the show, but it sets the final season in motion. Not that he knew that when he landed the part.
He was just finishing up a recurring, non-speaking role as a member of the Yakuza on HBO’s True Blood when his agent sent him an email about auditioning for Sons. »

Sons of Anarchy, Season 7, Episode 1, “Black Widower”
Written by Kurt Sutter
Directed by Paris Barclay
Airs Tuesdays at 10pm (Et) on FX
Coming off a bloody and shocking season finale, the final stretch of Sons of Anarchy kicks things off with nothing less than a bloody and shocking premiere. The actual action takes up less than a third of the episode, with most of the super-sized premiere ending up as time spent watching various gangs and family members talk in circles about last season’s events. With only a handful of episodes to iron out all of the conflicts from last year’s denouement, set up a proper season arc, and tie everything up in a satisfying manner, one would think Sutter and co. would have a sense of urgency when it comes to moving the plot along. Instead, a small number pieces on the chessboard are shifted a few »

The cast of Married With Children reunited in Hollywood on Tuesday to help honor Katey Sagal, who famously played the show's matriarch, Peggy. Christina Applegate, Ed O'Neill, and David Faustino were all on hand when Katey was awarded her very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. During the ceremony, the cast gave speeches in Katey's honor, and Christina joked about how she was stunned when she first met Katey on set. She said, "I met Katey when I was 15 years old . . . I'll never forget the day that I met her. I walked into the rehearsal hall for Married with Children, and she was sitting there wearing a white t-shirt and jeans, and I've never seen anyone look that good in a white t-shirt and jeans in my entire life." Christina added, "The fact that your body is better now than it was then makes me sick. Because I'm »
Sons of Anarchy's final season premiered this week, and we've got two words for you: Jax Teller. Charlie Hunnam has portrayed the Samcro member for going on seven seasons, and it's like he only gets hotter with age. In honor of the show's premiere - which sounds pretty insane - I've compiled some of the sexiest GIFs of Hunnam as Jax. He may not be playing Christian Grey, but as evidenced below, he definitely could have handled the steamy role. Check it out! »
Sons Of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam has finally revealed as to why he dropped out of the upcoming Fifty Shades Of Grey movie adaptation, two months after news broke that he landed the massive role of billionaire Christian Grey in the Sam Taylor-Johnson directed movie. Hunnam was replaced by Jamie Dornan after dropping out at the eleventh hour. There were all number of rumours about his sudden departure at the time, but the truth is that the young Newcastle born actor was seemingly burning himself out and had ‘something of a nervous breakdown’ at the time.
“I wouldn’t have signed up in the first place if I didn’t want to do it,” he said. “It was a really, really difficult time in my life.”
He revealed all to Moviefone.

The blond British thesp was originally cast in the part of the kinky billionaire but had to drop out two months later for reasons that weren't quite clear. Ultimately Irish model Jamie Dornan stepped in and played the role in the production.
Now, speaking with Moviefone, the actor said it was all a matter of an intense schedule that he couldn't handle and he wouldn't have originally signed up to the film if he hadn't wanted to do it. But:
"It was a really really difficult time in my life. I was going to finish 'Sons' at like 11p.m. Friday night, get on the plane Saturday morning to Vancouver for 'Fifty,' missing the whole first week of rehearsal and start shooting Monday morning.
And I was going to shoot that film, »
