And with the start up of filming, other developments are starting to take place... like casting news!
SoA SPOILERS If you're on a DVD/VoD Viewing Schedule...
I saw a Variety piece reporting that Marilyn Manson has been tapped for a recurring role in season seven.
Manson's character will be Ron Tully, a white supremacist who runs things from prison, and Jax starts working with him to expand his sphere of influence.
Seriously? Jax is going that route? This can't be good.
Other casting news is that Annabeth Gish (The Bridge) has been hired to play an edgy new sheriff in Charming, Sheriff Althea Jarry. Her first job will be to figure out who killed former Sheriff Eli Roosevelt and Tara Knowles. And in the process, she also figures out that she needs to work with SAMCRO
And for The Bridge fans, yes, she is still in the show and filming her work over there concurrently. That's crazy busy!
Don't forget that Drea de Matteo has been promoted to a series regular, playing Wendy. (Didn't
The supposition is that with Tara dead, she'll be more "hands on" with taking care of Jax's kids, Abel and Thomas. Or at least Abel. I presume with Thomas.
As you all know, as the season was winding down, Gemma was having a rough go at it and went nuts, killing Tara with a meat fork to the brain. On top of that, Juice ended up shooting Sheriff Roosevelt to protect Gemma from getting arrested. It was a crazy scene that Jax came across, finding Tara dead and the Sheriff, also dead in his kitchen. Plus, as Juice was ditching the murder weapons, we saw that pesky homeless girl ghost that we see each season.
That's how things were left as season six closed and rumors suggest that Tara's death is going to take Jax (Charlie Hunnam) over that edge that he's been trying to avoid all these seasons. Sutter believes that we we'll be seeing, this new, dark Jax, could land Hunnam some Emmys.
UPCOMING SEASON 7 SPOILERS
I'm seeing that the upcoming season will start from just before Tara's death and seeing it from a different angle...
Or that Sutter is considering a prequel, possibly based on John Teller's manuscript. Wow... that would be prequel cool!
We'll see about all that and then some!
