Previously, we gave you some tidbits on how the second season of the FX motorcycle series Sons of Anarchy
would shape up, thanks to creator and executive producer Kurt Sutter. The sophomore 13-episode season will likely premiere in September 2009, so Sons of Anarchy
fans have a lot of waiting to do, a mere weeks after the first season wrapped up its own 13-episode run. As far as ratings go, 5.4 million viewers on the average.
Meanwhile, Sons of Anarchy
star Charlie Hunnam
, who plays Jax Teller on the series, said he couldn't see himself putting on the shoes of the character he plays. ”I am a super lazy guy outside of work and from what I have seen of that lifestyle it seems to be very hectic. Don't think I would be able to keep up.” After all, Jax is SAMCRO's vice-president.
Asked what he thought he and his character had in common, Hunnam said not a lot. “We look the same, [but] that is about it,” he added. “I live a super quiet life. Very, very different.”
“But I am getting a bike soon!” he offered in consolation. “I'm going to get a Dyna, super glide, same bike i ride in the show. I love it.”
Moreover, English-born Hunnam, 28, said he did a lot of research for the role before taking it on. He said this after it was pointed out to him that his character didn't wear boots, like how motor bikers are typically portrayed. “Most of the younger club members I met with wore sneakers. And I like sneakers. But maybe if we go a few years and I get a little older.”
Sutter added that they usually have technical advisers who are “full-patch members of MC's” to aid them on such things in the storyline.
