'Sons of Anarchy' Kurt Sutter: Complete Q & A With Larry King
By Riza Ornos | April 28, 2014 7:57 AM EST
With so much anticipation on FX "Sons of Anarchy" season 7, series creator Kurt Sutter is giving the show's fans a few tidbits on what to expect on the series' finale. On his recent interview with Larry King, Sutter revealed his new project after his biker drama series, "The Bastard Executioner," and the story behind the success of his show.
The controversial creator also revealed that he owes the success of the show to his writers who are currently writing the show's ending. One of TV's high-testosterone drama, SOA centers on the close-knit relationship of the club's brotherhood and the mother's suffocating love for her son.
Thanks to show's season 6 bloody ending, SOA season 7 is now highly anticipated as fans are dying to know the fate of Gemma after murdering Tara and Jax's reaction after finding out the truth. Sutter also cleared the rumors about "Breaking Bad" actor Aaron Paul making a cameo and said that he wants to keep the possibility open.
With millions of fans following the SOA finale, Sutter revealed that he is thankful for HBO's "The Sopranos" for paving the way for his show. Now people are embracing an outlaw hero like Walter White of "Breaking Bad" and Dexter Morgan of CBS "Dexter" just like the biker outlaw of "Sons of Anarchy."
You handpicked Charlie Hunnam as Jax. Who do you see as the lead in "The Bastard Executioner"?
I don't really see anybody yet because I haven't even started writing the script and it's not until I'm in that process that I really start to see faces.
Who from current cast would you like to work with again and will you?
I love all my actors, I'd work with Charlie again in a heartbeat, and most of those guys. I'll probably end up using, because we're shooting in the U.K., in that model, I'll probably end up using quite a few Brit actors.
Will you ever reveal the backstory of the homeless wome nin season 7?
Have you been offered any comedy projects to direct?
Any plans to release Jax's journal at the end of season 7?
The idea initially was to make john Teller's manuscript a book, and I think I'm going to wait until I do the prequel, because so much of that informs the prequel.
Do you let daughters watch "Sons"?
My older daughter, she watches the show, yes.
Why do you write the most brutal stuff for your character Otto?
That's at least an hour-and-a-half conversation.
Besides Otto, which character do you feel the most connected to?
How important are the motorcycles?
It's the representation of the subculture, so it's very important for me.
What real life MC is the closest to Sons of Anarchy?
I don't know, the club is based on so many different aspects of clubs, and it's not like as big as Hell's Angels or the outlaws, it's hard to say.
Don't let this show end!
Dinner with any three people dead or alive, who would they be?
Larry King and his two closest friends.
Is this season the hardest to write since it's the last?
I don't think it'll be any harder in terms of story, at some point emotionally I think it will be difficult as I get closer to the end.
Who was the hardest character to kill off?
Are you at the point plotwise that you expected since the beginning?
I think the show will end in sort of the area that I wanted it to end, but it changes all the time, which is part of the fun for me.
What are your writing rituals?
I need quiet, I have my office, because my writing process is very active, mostly at night, I'm up, I'm walkign around, I'm acting out scenes.
