SONS OF ANARCHY UPDATE. CAMERAS ROLL.
We begin filming the pilot this Tuesday. At the risk of sounding self-congratulatory, I have to say, I think I've managed to surround myself with an amazing team. From my line producer to my costume designer, everyone is at the top of their game. I have the Sopranos A-team at the wheel -- Allen Coulter (director), Sidney Wolinsky (editor) and Scott Murphy (production designer). And Allen's DP from Hollywoodland, Rome and Damages, Jonathan Freeman. Allen Coulter is, in my opinion, one of the most talented directors working in television and film today. Any hack with a good DP can call shots and assemble images, but a good director is a story teller. Allen is just that; a true artist with a flare for originality, an uncompromising eye and a sensibility that's just twisted enough to get my shit. It's been a love fest since he stepped off the plane. My cast is as eclectic as they are talented. I have not had to make a single compromise in the casting process. Every actor in this show is the right actor for the role. We've just closed on some people so I hope I'm not stepping on any press releases. But I can't suppress my glee any longer. Here's my kick-ass Sons of Anarchy cast: JAX TELLER - CHARLIE HUNNAM CLAY MORROW - SCOTT GLENN GEMMA TELLER - KATEY SAGAL TARA KNOWLES - MAGGIE SIFF WENDY CASE - DREA DEMATTEO CHIBS TELFORD - TOMMY FLANAGAN HALF-SACK EPPS - JOHNNY LEWIS BOBBY MUNSON - MARK BOONE JR.
