Syfy is jumping into the comic book-adaptation game, having acquired the rights to Dark Horse’s Dark Matter graphic novel series.
The network has picked up a 13-episode series based on Dark Matter, which actually only spawned four issues. The series will keep things in the Syfy family, as the original Dark Matter comics comes from Stargate writers Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie. READ FULL STORY
Spoiler alert: In the Oct. 14 episode of Sons of Anarchy, “Smoke ‘Em If You Got ‘Em,” Leland (Brad Carter) and the Aryan Brotherhood made a return appearance to have a fistfight with SAMCRO, view the corpses of the ambushed East Dub crew, and taste-test the Mayan heroin that Tully (Marilyn Manson) is going to now distribute in Stockton under Jax’s (Charlie Hunnam) new plan. Viewers may recognize the Texas-born, Georgia-raised Carter, who’d auditioned to play an Irish biker on Sons years ago, from HBO’s True Detective—he played AB inmate Charlie Lange. “Fortunately and unfortunately, these kind of characters seem to be in my wheelhouse. My mom always says, ‘Why can’t you play a nice boy?'” he tells EW. “‘Cause I am. I’m a nice person. My daddy’s a preacher. My mom is very devout. My mama can’t ever watch hardly anything I do because I’m either dyin’, or killin’ somebody, or doin’ something awful, and she just doesn’t like to see it. But I think that’s the key for me, that in regular life I don’t get to show some of the rage I feel sometimes, especially when you’re a nice guy. And so it just gets to come out on-camera, and that’s fun.”
Though he’s done a fair amount of guest work on TV—and made headlines last year when he played his guitar during Deep Brain Stimulation surgery for a condition called “essential tremor,” which is dominant in his right hand (great results mean he’s working on an album)—True Detective changed the tide, he says. “It’s awesome to be able to go into a room, even one that I’ve been into before, and you feel like there’s a whole new respect that they have for you as an actor. It seems like every room that I walk in, the producers and the casting directors all have seen the show and they all want to talk about it. That’s like handing an actor a gift. It’s like, ‘Oh my god, you were so great in this thing, and I just want to talk about it,’ as opposed to, ‘Okay. You’re here. What’s your name? Show me what you can do,'” he says. “It makes you have a great audition, and I couldn’t be more grateful for that opportunity and the other opportunities it’s afforded me.”
That brings us to Sons—and the joys of getting suckerpunched by Charlie Hunnam. “I couldn’t believe it,” he says laughing. “I’m like, ‘I’m supposed to be a badass Aryan Brotherhood. I’m gonna fall for that?’ But he’s the star.” READ FULL STORY

Spoiler alert: In the Oct. 14 episode of Sons of Anarchy, “Smoke ‘Em If You Got ‘Em,” Alvarez (Emilio Rivera) declines Juice’s offer of intel on SAMCRO in exchange for getting him into Mexico. Instead, Alvarez strikes a deal with Jax (Charlie Hunnam) to hand Juice over…in exchange for inheriting the Irish gun trade once they take down August Marks and splitting Lin’s territory with the Niners (which will make up for the Mayans letting the Aryan Brotherhood distribute heroin in Stockton). Rivera, who’s recurred on the show since the pilot, talked to EW about Alvarez’s play, how he’ll remember the show, and that time he promised Emilio Jr. he’d never let someone kill him as a peace offering.

Spoiler alert: The Oct. 14 episode of Sons of Anarchy, “Smoke ‘Em If You Got ‘Em,” ended with Juice (Theo Rossi) face-to-face with Jax (Charlie Hunnam) after he tried to make an ill-advised deal with Alvarez (Emilio Rivera) offering intel on SAMCRO in exchange for help getting into Mexico. Episode director Guy Ferland—who’s helmed many memorable hours of SOA including “The Pull,” “Albification,” and season 7’s “Poor Little Lambs”—phoned EW from the set of Gotham, where he’s in the director’s chair this week, to talk about filming Juice’s betrayal, that East Dub ambush, and Gemma’s breakdown.
