'Sons of Anarchy': Maggie Siff on 'disturbing' fan hostility toward Tara

Whether it was Skyler on Breaking Bad, Rita on Dexter, Lori on The Walking Dead, or Margaret on Boardwalk Empire, TV wives often seem to be on the receiving end of a lot of hate, even when their on-screen husbands are often guilty of much worse crimes. So it was not altogether surprising when many Sons of Anarchy fans set their sights — and vitriol — on Jax Teller’s wife Tara.

Granted, she faked a pregnancy and a miscarriage to trick Jax into signing a restraining order against his own mother. And granted, she was doing this to get her sons away from the dangerous world of SAMCRO, and, it seems, their father. But is removing the boys away from such an environment such a bad thing? Is Tara just the latest victim of another sexual double-standard, in which female characters are held to a different standard than the male protagonists to which they are married? READ FULL STORY

'Sons of Anarchy': Maggie Siff on Tara's shocking turn

It’s been the wildest of rides for Tara this season on Sons of Anarchy. She faked both a pregnancy and a miscarriage in an attempt to get herself and her sons away from SAMCRO. But then her plan went haywire when the truth came out and she is now hiding out in a motel with her boys as we head into Tuesday’s season 6 finale.

So what did the actress who plays Tara, Maggie Siff, think when SOA creator Kurt Sutter first explained her storyline for the season? “My eyes sort of rolled back into my head,” said Siff when she called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105). “My first concern…as an actor was how to make it believable, that she would do this and go to these lengths.” READ FULL STORY

We learned why Venus Van Dam (Walton Goggins) had returned looking for Nero: Venus’ 15-year-old “nephew” Joey, who was actually her son, had fallen into the custody of her mother, Alice — who’d launched a lucrative child pornography service back when Venus was a young Vincent. Venus needed SAMCRO to help her liberate Joey. Here, Goggins chats about Venus’ drama — and about that tender moment with Tig (Kim Coates).

'Sons of Anarchy': Donal Logue talks Toric's latest deeds

On last week’s Sons of Anarchy, we watched Lee Toric (Donal Logue) grow increasingly desperate to find someone to turn on SAMCRO. He used two Byz-Lats’ mouths as bottle openers when they refused to give him dirt on Nero (Jimmy Smits). “It was as insane on the page when I first read it. Thank god they’re such nice guys,” Logue says. He accidentally shot the prostitute he’d bedded when the DA (CCH Pounder) pulled up to his motel and the escort startled him. “She’s like, ‘Ohmygod, I’m shot,’ and he’s like, ‘No, no, no, you’re fine.’ It’s that weird thing of shocking someone who’s in shock,” says Logue, who blames one of Toric’s physical tics for pulling the trigger. “He’s gotta deal with this situation within three seconds. I remember on set that weirdness of boom-boom [two shots to the head] and then the knock at the door. It’s like, ‘One second! Just give me a minute!'” And then he kept the girl in his bathtub so he could remove evidence that could be planted in Nero’s truck. “I love Nero. I’m angry at myself. It’s not cool,” Logue says, with a laugh. “You could always fall back on some kind of argument that, ‘Look, this guy’s sister was brutally murdered.’ Like, he’s not the one morally in the wrong here. But now he’s crossed lines that he can’t come back from.”

'Sons of Anarchy': Kim Coates talks 'Poenitentia'

Billy Brown compares his roles on 'Hostages' and 'Sons of Anarchy'

If you’re a fan of Billy Brown, who’ll continue to recur as August Marks on FX’s Sons of Anarchy while costarring as one of the captors in CBS’ new drama Hostages (which debuts tonight at 10 p.m. ET), we have good news: His role on Hostages lasts longer than the one he had on Fox’s The Following last season (his FBI agent was killed off in episode 3).  “Yes, as far as I know, I’ll be around for the duration,” Brown says with a laugh.

On Hostages, Brown plays Archer, one of the four kidnappers (led by Dylan McDermott’s Duncan) who holds a surgeon (Toni Collette) and her family hostage the night before she is to operate on the president of the United States (James Naughton). If she makes sure the president dies, her family lives. How does this turn into a 15-episode series? As Collette told EW in our Fall TV preview issue, “It’s not about a family tied up on their couch. They continue to be monitored, but the captors are smart and they know that the family has to get back out into the world and continue to look normal.” Viewers will also learn about the secrets family members are keeping from one another as well as more about Duncan’s crew.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: How would you compare Archer to August?
BILLY BROWN: They share some commonality of intensity in certain moments, but August is still learning to be disciplined and focused through all storms. Archer’s that guy. He’s got structure and discipline, and that’s having the background in the Army, and then moving into the Army Rangers and contract work outside of that life — all of which adds up to a guy who is highly organized and supremely motivated. So the intensity can be transferred to aggression, as well as to the more intellectual side. READ FULL STORY
