We said it in our recap of Sons of Anarchy‘s season 6 finale, and now we’ll say it again: Every year, EW advocates for Maggie Siff to get an Emmy nomination. We hope this past season’s scene in the park — when Tara is convinced Jax (Charlie Hunnam) is going to kill her, but instead, he decides to set her and their boys free — will finally cinch her one. Here, Siff — a new mom who imagines she’ll “start sniffing around again in the fall” for her next role — talks about that scene, which was named one of the TV season’s 50 Best in the issue of Entertainment Weekly on stands now.

It’s a big day for Sons of Anarchy casting news: After the announcement that Marilyn Manson will be recurring in the final season, FX confirms that The Bridge‘s Annabeth Gish will play new sheriff Althea Jarry. The veteran of Stockton’s Organized Crime Unit will be tasked with solving the murders of Sheriff Eli Roosevelt and Tara Knowles. TVLine was the first to report the casting.
Like the sheriffs who’ve come before her, Jarry will learn she has to work with SAMCRO to keep bullets from flying — but she’ll be no pushover. (Here’s hoping she fares better than Agent Stahl.)
Gish, who’ll remain on The Bridge, won’t appear in the season 7 premiere, which features the debut of Manson as Ron Tully, a white supremacist prison shot-caller who Jax uses to expand his power base.
Filming of Sons of Anarchy‘s final season got underway May 28. Here’s something to look forward to: Marilyn Manson will recur as Ron Tully, a white supremacist prison shot-caller who Jax uses to expand his power base. He’ll make his debut in the season 7 premiere this fall.
“Sons has been such a big part of my life, as well as my father’s,” Manson says in FX’s announcement. “So I was determined to make him proud by being involved in what will probably be remembered as the most amazing piece of television cinema. After all, the very heart of SOA is about that relationship. So, now all I need is a motorcycle.”
UPDATE: The Bridge‘s Annabeth Gish has been cast as the new sheriff.
It’s less than a month until cameras start rolling on the final season of FX’s Sons of Anarchy, and while Theo Rossi (Juice) hasn’t yet read the script for the premiere, fans know from creator Kurt Sutter’s WTF Sutter web series that it’s been turned in to the network with “a few disclaimers in terms of the tone.”
That’s the kind of tease that makes die-hards both nervous and excited — a state Rossi himself has been in since the identity of Juice’s father became a plot point in season 4. “For anybody who’s had to be near me, live with me, be friends with me, family members, it’s been a nightmare, because it’s been anxiety ever since,” he jokes to EW. “The truth is, what I’ve gotten to do on this show I don’t think I’ll ever match on any job ever, because I’ve literally gotten to play every single emotion an actor can play. I’ve been the funny guy, the loyal guy, the guy fearing for my life, the guy trying to take my own life, the guy taking a lot of other people’s lives as a stone-cold killer, to this guy who’s kinda floating in the abyss now and you don’t know where he’s going — which I think is the most dangerous part about him,” Rossi says. “It’s why you do this, it’s why you get into this racket. Kurt gave me that all in one character. So for this year, I don’t expect that to be any different. If anything, I expect it only to be intensified, really heavily.” READ FULL STORY
Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter has a new drama in the works at FX.
The pilot, titled The Bastard Executioner, was announced today by the network and described as a period drama about a warrior knight in the age of King Edward III. He’s described as a man “who is broken by the ravages of war” and despite a vow to lay down his sword soon finds himself picking up “the bloodiest sword of all.”
Production is scheduled to start in 2014. Sutter created the project and will serve as executive producer. Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo will also serve as EPs.

Spoiler alert! If you haven’t watched Sons of Anarchy‘s season 6 finale (read our full recap), stop reading now. Rockmond Dunbar (Sheriff Eli Roosevelt), who’s now a regular on CBS’ The Mentalist, phoned EW to talk about the episode’s shocking ending — and to gush about his daughter, Berkeley Seon, born Dec. 6. “My wife is making my dreams come true. She gave me a baby girl, 8 lbs., 3 oz., 20.5 inches. She is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen in my entire life. I’m just so happy, I don’t even sleep. All my friends told me, ‘Dude, you’re not gonna sleep. The baby’s gonna keep you up.’ I’m realizing it’s not the baby that’s keeping me up, it’s me staring at her every waking moment. I’m so absolutely in love and so happy with my life. And thank god for [The Mentalist exec producers] Bruno Heller and Chris Long, because if I didn’t have a job, maybe this whole outlook would be a little bit different because babies are f–kin’ expensive, man,” he says, laughing. “This little girl’s costing me an arm and a leg, and I love it.”

If you watched Tuesday’s episode of Sons of Anarchy on FX, you experienced the brutal and gory death of a major character. Fortunately, EW was on the set when the actor was preparing to say goodbye.
But first, a spoiler alert! Don’t read beyond the jump if you haven’t watched the heartbreaking episode. READ FULL STORY
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
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
