Trivia

Explaining how his cameo happened, Walton Goggins said that he read an interview where creator Kurt Sutter explained why Michael Chiklis and Goggins hadn't guest starred on the show like many actors from The Shield. Sutter explanation was that their characters were too associated with the actors and audience would think about Vic and Shane seeing Chiklis and Goggins. Goggis then called Sutter and, to prove him wrong, he suggested playing a transgender on Sons of Anarchy. See more »

Then There is This One
18 January 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

There are good episode of Sons of Anarchy. There are great episodes of Sons of Anarchy and then there is this one. It is one of the best. Walter Goggins (from The Shield) guest stars and is outstanding in his cameo role as Venus Van Damme. The other characters Juice (Theo Rossi) and Tig (Kim Coates) also flex their comedic muscles . It's not all laughs though with Gemma (Katey Segal) still struggling. Her ongoing relationship with Tara really starts to deteriorate setting up some story lines we won't see for a whole season. Eli and his wife share a lovely lunch. When a character is happy this is usually not a good sign for the actor playing the part in this show and we see why in the later moments. There is a confronting little irony at the end as Kurt Sutter continues to push the boundaries (check his Twitter account if you don't believe me). It's a little shorter than some of the other but so shut off the rest of the world for 45 minutes of pure drama and entertainment. You won't find this kind of television excellence very often.
