As Sons of Anarchy fans wait anxiously for Tuesday’s episode, which will kill off a character (39 percent are betting on Unser), let’s take a moment to be Happy before we’re all sad. The latest “Behind the Anarchy” focuses on actor David Labrava, who has too nicknames in real life — “DL” and “Liftoff.” The best parts of the video are Theo Rossi (Juice) getting de-tattooed in the makeup trailer while he explains that Labrava is actually a sweetheart and later razzing Kim Coates (Tig) for wearing new jeans. “Now this is the level of outlaw conversation we have going on here at the Sons of Anarchy, which is the condition of this guy’s jeans,” Labrava says. “Not bikes. Not guns. Not blood. Jeans.”

Only two weeks in and Sons of Anarchy has already packed some pretty painful punches. (RIP, Tig offspring!) Incredibly, Creator Kurt Sutter has only just begun: EW has learned that in Tuesday’s episode, a very important person within the SAMCRO family will die. It’s a primetime certainty!
Hold off on the waterworks, though: We weren’t let in on the character’s identity. But we did manage to persuade a key source within the SOA camp to confirm who may be on the chopping block. Here are six people who are ripe for the picking:
1. Wayne Unser (Dayton Callie). The former chief has terminal cancer, so he could either die a natural death or commit suicide. Then again, he did decide to take the law in his own hands by investigating the strange spate of Charming break-ins. Maybe he’s onto something that someone doesn’t want him to know? READ FULL STORY »
Tonight, Sons of Anarchy returns with an explosive, emotional fifth season premiere (FX, 10 p.m. ET). Since we’ve already given diehards plenty of intel on season 5, let’s talk to the people who’ve heard how great this EWwy-nominated show is (Ken Tucker gives it an an A- in the current issue of EW) but haven’t had a chance to catch up. Here are five things you need to know in order to jump in tonight. READ FULL STORY »
Somehow, someway, Clay survived season 4 of Sons of Anarchy. But does that mean the former SAMCRO prez is now in the clear, or are his days still numbered? Mandi Bierly and I discuss that and more as we preview Sons of Anarchy’s upcoming season 5 on the latest edition of the InsideTV Podcast.
What can we expect from the new additions of Jimmy Smits and Harold Perrineau? What is Gemma’s next move? And how will Jax react to being at the head of the table? We’ve seen the first two episodes and will provide our thoughts and teases as for what to expect. Just click on the audio player icon below to hear Mandi and me break it down. (The Sons of Anarchy discussion begins at 14 minutes in.)
But first, Dan Snierson and Melissa Maerz stop by to discuss and debate the Breaking Bad 2012 finale. Is Walt’s cancer back? Is Jesse really out? And should we be rooting for Heisenberg at this point, or against him? We answer all that and present theories as to how the whole thing may end. Plus, Annie Barrett calls in preview the new (and hopefully improved) X Factor. Will the addition of Britney Spears and Demi Lovato make the show watchable? Is it worth giving The X Factor another shot? (The X Factor chat starts at 26:00.) READ FULL STORY »
While we won’t meet Joel McHale’s con man Warren (no last name) in Sons of Anarchy‘s Sept. 11 season 5 premiere (he first appears in episode six), you can watch him in action now in the latest installment of “Before the Anarchy” embedded below. We see him in makeup (there will be blood), and he talks about his chance to shoot guns and possibly a nude scene. (We hope/assume he isn’t joking about that.) READ FULL STORY »
InsideTV Podcast: Will Walt die on 'Breaking Bad'...and should he? Plus: previewing 'Sons of Anarchy' and 'The X Factor'
With only eight episodes remaining and brother-in-law Hank finally on to him, is the clock about to run out on Breaking Bad’s Walter White…as in, is he finally doomed to die? But more important than that, do we want him to die? EW’s own Dan Snierson and Melissa Maerz join me on this week’s edition of the InsideTV Podcast to break down the last Breaking Bad episode of the year. Is Walt’s cancer back? Will Hank finally take down Heisenberg? And what sort of misery will befall Jesse next? We have theories! Listen in as we discuss how TV’s best drama may — or may not — wrap things up.
Then, Mandi Bierly stops by to preview the upcoming season 5 of Sons of Anarchy and offer up intel on the two big new characters played by Jimmy Smits and Harold Perrineau. We’ve seen the first two (excellent) episodes and provide some teases and clues on what to expect. (If you want to skip straight to the Sons of Anarchy discussion, it begins at 14:00.)
Finally, we call up Annie Barrett to get her insight on the new X Factor judges panel. Will the addition of Britney Spears and Demi Lovato make the show…um, watchable? Is it worth giving The X Factor another shot? And who the hell is hosting this show now anyway? We get into all of that and more — like which show will come out on top: The X-Factor or The Voice. (The X Factor chat starts at 26:00.) READ FULL STORY »
If you told me that TV’s most fun hair and makeup trailer was on the set of Sons of Anarchy, I wouldn’t have believed you. But now, after viewing the latest installment of “Behind the Anarchy,” it has my vote. Watch the “Juice” video below, in which Theo Rossi takes us along for his grooming session at around :55. Ron Perlman’s entrance may be the best thing you’ve seen all day… until Charlie Hunnam is shown doing push-ups. READ FULL STORY »
It’s time to meet the new faces in Charming, friends. The latest “Before the Anarchy” webisode introduces three new members of S.A.M.C.R.O., who we’ll get to know when Sons of Anarchy returns Sept. 11. There’s Frankie Diamonds (Chuck Zito), Gogo (Chris Browning), and Greg the Peg, a badass biker who just happens to be missing a leg (like actor Kurt Yaeger). “I don’t know if you should trust us or not,” Yaeger says. This show? We’ll guess not.
We also get a first look at two “wild cards” who’ll work under Jimmy Smits’ Nero — Lupe (Jorge Pallo) and Fiasco (Rey Gallegos). They like to “joke around, shoot some people.” Business as usual! READ FULL STORY »
With Sons of Anarchy‘s Sept. 11 season premiere date approaching, the promo footage just keeps coming. Of the four clips below, the best is titled “Nero” and hints at how close Jimmy Smits’ character Nero Padilla, an OG gangbanger, gets to Katey Sagal’s Gemma — and how far Gemma and Clay (Ron Perlman) are from reuniting. “I don’t even know who you are anymore,” Clay says. “Why don’t you bounce my face off the floor, and maybe you’ll recognize me,” she answers.

How will Clay come back from all his evil deeds last season? Just how bad is Damon Pope — the powerful man whose daughter was killed at the end of last season? And whose on the rebound?
Those questions and more were answered during Sons of Anarchy‘s panel at TCA this afternoon. Here’s what the cast — including new players Jimmy Smits and Harold Perrineau — and executive producer Kurt Sutter had to say.
CLAY: As the season starts, Clay (Ron Perlman) is in a whole new form — downright frail. “He’s the same guy but dealing with a totally different set of circumstances,” says Perlman. And considering his state, could this season the end of Clay? No one is safe, says Sutter. Well, except for Jax (Charlie Hunnam). “I will say this, my sense of where the show will end up includes Jax — and perhaps Gemma (Katey Sagal) and Clay” he says. “As we come into season 5, it’s really the first season I’ve had to have a very clear sense of what my endgame is. I realized that this season, I have to write to this endgame.”
DAMON POPE: After the death of his daughter at the hands of SAMCRO last season, new character Damon Pope (Perrineau) is on the war path — in an unexpected way. “To me, the character of Damon Pope was a guy who had come out of the streets and really changed the perception of who he was. I wanted a guy who had refinement and could show some vulnerability. I waned an actor who could play all those levels,” said Sutter. READ FULL STORY »
