Sons Of Anarchy casting info tidbits
(mostly from the Chicago Tribune)
- Dayton Callie, who plays Sheriff Wayne Unser, has been made a series regular this year.
- Agent June Stahl will be back for us to hate with a fiery passion for four or five episodes.
- Hal Holbrook, who plays Gemma’s father, will be in the first four episodes of the season (probably being visited by his fugitive daughter.)
- Stephen King’s cameo will be in Episode 3
- Paula Malcolmson (former “Deadwood” cast mate of Dayton Callie and Titus Welliver, who plays Jimmy O), is in eight episodes as the “Gemma” of the Belfast chapter (SAM BELL)
- Speaking of Titus Welliver, Jimmy O’Phelan will be back taunting Chibs and no doubt lots of other people for eight episodes.
- Yet another “Deadwood” alumni will be joining the cast this season: Robin Weigert, (who played Calamity Jane) has a recurring role this year as SAMCRO’s lawyer
- Lots of UK actors are joining the cast for the Belfast story arc. James Cosmo appears as Irish Catholic priest Father Kellan Ashby, Andrew McFee as Belfast chapter president (and SAMCRO original 9 member) Kevin McGee, Ari Verveen as SAM BELL Sergeant at Arms Liam O’Neill and Zoe Boyle as Maureen’s (Paula Malcolmson) daughter Trinity.
Sons Of Anarchy season three set photos: Rippin-Kitten exclusive
As we already know, much of the season will take place in Belfast. While on my set visit I was shown, and photographed, some of the interior sets for the Belfast scenes.
The Chicago Tribune also had some exclusive photos to share. Granted the photos are small, but still worth a gander.
Here they are, some Sons Of Anarchy season 3 spoilers!
The Belfast story line will be very important this season. Mr. Sutter’s blog post a while ago set up the back story for Charming/Belfast explaining that John Teller set up the Sons of Anarchy charter in Belfast at the urging of Clay and Kevin McGee (a member of the original nine and current Belfast chapter president) in order to run guns for the IRA.
From the start of the season there will be dual stories taking place in both Charming and Belfast, which will eventually converge a few episodes in. It also sounds like we’re going to get a little more backstory about John Teller this season. Kurt Sutter told the Chicago Tribune, “I think people are invested enough in the characters and the world to where they’re open to getting backstory about John Teller (SAMCRO co-founder and Jax’s father) and about this world.”
In the Belfast storyline, Father Kellan Ashby and Jimmy O. will have a very combative relationship. KS told the Chicago Tribune, “It’s really this conflict between these two men (Jimmy O and the priest). They are living outside the box and it’s really mirroring a lot of the stuff that went on last season with Jax and Clay. It’s really all about character and that dynamic. And what happens is, the baby sort of becomes the pawn in all of that.”
Also, apparently Father Ashby will listen to someone’s confession and eventually he will be forced to condone the ultimate punishment. (TV Fanatic).
And lastly, an SOA show “nsider, snitchesgetstitches left a comment here last week saying the following:
“I work on the show…for obvious reasons my real name aint here. I will tell you guys were wrapping up and there are some big surprises in store for the new season. Kurt is very careful about PR so you wont be getting anymore info other than whats out there…except I will say there is a “vacation” planned to the Emerald Isle which will be interesting.”
Hmm, a “vacation”? Anyone want to take a guess?
I’m going to predict that it will be Jax taking that vacation based on this from Sutter, “In my mind…I knew the Irish backstory was always a very big part of this mythology…It’s like, Jax is in a place where he’s deciding what he’s going to do, and he gets pulled away from all of that with everything that happens with his kid. Yet he can’t ultimately deny the information that he’s going to get in Belfast, and it will continue to impact him. So it seems like we’re going in a completely different direction, but, you know, we’re just continuing to tell the emotional story of our lead character.”
