FX’s hit series Sons of Anarchy closes down shop tomorrow night (10/9C) for the last time and late last week, Jimmy Smits took part in a conference call Q&A session to talk about the final season of Sons Of Anarchy and how Nero had gone from a character with a few episodes to making it to the end, ‘but maybe not the end end.’
Smits, who has several memorable roles over the years – from NYPD Blue’s Det. Bobby Simone to Dexter’s sociopathic Miguel Prado – talked about how he came to SOA and how pleased he was to have made such a substantial contribution to series’ mythology.
FX’s Sons Of Anarchy is back for season 7! This season begins ten days later with Jax in jail on a parole violation and dealing with the loss of the woman he loved. He then plans for complete and merciless retribution with the support of the outlaw motorcycle club (MC). The illegal arms business hidden behind the guise of the automotive shop continues to be driven by the seduction of money, power, and blood. As the last season of this popular show, be prepared for anything.
Jax tries to ally with Ron Tully (Marilyn Manson), a shot caller for Aryan Brotherhood who is currently incarcerated by trying to meet Leland Gruen (Brad Carter), the right hand of Ron Tully. I had the opportunity to chat with Brad about his current role on “Sons Of Anarchy” and his upcoming role on “Ascension”.

Monday morning, he spoke with a group of journalists/bloggers about (among other things) the show, the character and the progress of Latinos on television. He was open, honest and blunt without being rude – as well as thoughtful and, at times, intense.
In Gemma Teller-Morrow, the matriarch of the titular biker club, Sons of Anarchy (FX, Tuesdays, 10/9C), Katey Sagal is tackling a complex, dynamic character who will do anything she can to protect her families – biological and surrogate.
