New shots from Sons of Anarchy's second season
With Rescue Me plowing through it's massive 22 episode fifth season, it's a little weird to think that we'll be tuning into Denis Leary's FDNY hijnks until September 8th - especially since we're used to having the show be over after about three months.
I'm not really sure what my point is mentioning that, because all I'm doing is piling good news on top of more good news - once Rescue Me ends, Sons of Anarchy is back.
The FX motorcycle drama began filming it's second season recently, with two notable cast additions - Henry Rollins and Adam Arkin. At the time of Rollins casting, nothing was known about his character other than his role as a "new antagonist." Now, according to Fancast, it turns out that both Rollins and Arkin will be playing neo-nazis. If you recall Jax (Charlie Hunnam) and Clay's tumultuous relationship with Darby (Mitch Pileggi) and the Nords, then you know they ain't gonna get along with these two.
If you feel like being spoiled beyond that, pictures and more character info after the jump...
Rollins plays AJ Weston and Arkin plays Ethan Zobelle. Apparently the two of them are going to be quite the thorn in SAMCRO's side. Additionally, Zobelle could be an even bigger problem for stoagie smokin' Clay (Ron Perlman) - he plans to open a cigar shop. Hey - even racists like smooth, oak-aged tobacco, right?
Anyway, here's a few shots from the set of the new season. Rollins, as you'd expect, looks pretty bad-ass and Arkin, well ... he doesn't really look like the neo-nazi type. At least not the stereotypical white supremacist we're used to seeing. As far a premiere date for the new season, still too early to tell, but I'd bet on a late September, early October return.
