Season 3 of Sons of Anarchy begins Tuesday, September 7th!
It was rumored the last time I wrote about SOA but Entertainment Weekly confirms that FX has announced their fall schedule and the show will return on it’s regular night, Tuesday September 7th. Rejoice, one and all!
Eff the Emmys!
By now anyone that cares about the Emmys knows that our girl, Katey Sagal, was snubbed for a nomination for her incredibly amazing performance as Gemma in season 2. I wouldn’t even bother to mention it if I didn’t honestly think that she deserved the acknowledgment. And I think the majority of us deep in our hearts knew that the show itself would not get a nomination, even if we wanted it to. There’s a lot of good shows out there and it would seem that the Academy chooses to stick with the safe ones.
Speaking of the Emmys, Mr. Sutter did not hesitate to speak his mind on the issue. In his post “We Don’t Like Your Kind” he reminds us that it’s ok for a show about outlaws to be shut out of the inner circle. Also check out his other recent posts about the controversy of his blogging and how the media spins everything he writes so that he seems like the “Sean Penn of the Blogosphere”.
“My most recent blog is being spun by the rag blogs as an angry rude rant. Sour grapes? Maybe, but clearly honesty makes folks uncomfortable.”- from a recent tweet.
Sons of Nerd-ary?
Comic-con in San Diego is happening July 22-25 and the attendees better make sure they put on their big-boy pants. Making a first time appearance will be Sons of Anarchy series stars Charlie Hunnam, Katey Sagal, Ron Perlman and series creator Kurt Sutter. They’ll be there on Sunday afternoon and appearing with the cast of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
I could make all sorts of jokes about people who attend Comic-con but I’m not going to because if I was in San Diego I’d be there, too!
Charlie Hunnam prospects for a new movie
Charlie Hunnam is heading back to his native Newcastle to make a movie about his dad. The Sunday Sun reports that Hunnam wrote the script about his dad, Billy. “He has a really, really interesting life and is a real tough guy from a very, very tough corner of England.”
Charlie is hoping to be as hands on as possible in the making of this movie. “I am thinking I may be able to produce that in a more hands-on way in terms of hiring the director that I want and hiring an actor to play my dad and stuff, and actually fully produce that film, which would be great.”
Hunnam’s other script “Vlad” about Vlad the Impaler (the real-life inspiration for Dracula) is being made into a movie called “Blood” by Brad Pitt’s Plan B production company.

Did you read about my visit to the set of SOA?
In case you missed it, last month I was fortunate enough to be out in California and to spend some time with Mr. Sutter on the set of Sons of Anarchy. You can read about my experience and there’s lots of good photos that I took while I was there (and some shaky video footage that I shot, ha ha).
Have you seen the new Season 3 promo?
Neither have I.
But friends of mine claim they’ve seen it running on FX. If anyone finds it online somewhere can you drop me a line and send me in that direction? Thanks!
