ADAM ARKIN

I'll let the lovely Jennifer Godwin over at E-online, break it to you -- Sources tell us exclusively that Adam Arkin has joined FX's dark, violent (and awesome) motorcycle-gang series Sons of Anarchy for a multi-episode arc. Arkin will play Ethan Zobelle, a season-two antagonist for SAMCRO.

Unlike his current cute and fuzzy Ted character on Life, Arkin's new role on Sons of Anarchy will be anything but adorable. So what variety of wicked is this Ethan fellow? Here's what we can tell you...

Arkin's Ethan is described as a white supremacist who arrives in Charming, Calif., to open a new small business, reportedly a cigar shop. And you know who loves cigars, don't you? Ron Perlman's Clay Morrow, aka the undisputed boss of Charming and the sitting president of the Redwood Original. Clay doesn't love ultranationalist thugs, so skulls will no doubt be cracked before season's end.

Actor-musician Henry Rollins joined the Sons of Anarchy cast last month as another neo-Nazi baddie. (Kick his ass Jax!)

P.S. Don't fret, Life fans, Arkin could easily wedge this role in between seasons two and three, should Life be blessed with a last-minute cancellation reprieve from Ben Silverman at NBC or even Bonnie Hammer at USA.

Who else is looking forward to more SOA?

Hot damn, that's pretty awesome. This does concern me that Mitch Pileggi who completely blew my mind in his role is not returning.

And to think I was concerned you were going after Mario Van Peebles.

That rocks. Everytime we see a SoA commercial during Rescue Me, we are reminded how much we miss it! Can't wait for the new season to start.

I really like the series. I know some real bikers and your bikers look and act the part.

Is Adam Arkin Alan Arkin's son?
Maybe you could get Alan to do a guest shot and reprieve his Senator role from West Wing. Talk about some father/son drama.

Good luck with Season 2.

I've been silently pining away for more SOA, but since I've seen the short previews for season 2 recently, the silent pining has turned into desperate longing. In other words, I can't fucking wait!

I am Active Duty AF, deployed overseas for 6 months and am a huge fan of the show. We have a morale drive on our computers with all the episodes. I shouild be home for the start of the new season and can't wait. Would there be any possible way to get a original honorary cut from the SOA?

When is the Prospect going to get his Top Rocker? I remember going through the prospect phase in my MC and it was grueling. I am sure the actor and his character can't wait to be a full patch.
SOA rocks and can't wait for the new season to start!

My husband and I live in Tujunga and are avid fans of the great series your team puts out.

Thank you for putting something thoughtful, exciting, and gritty on TV. We had no idea what we were going to watch when The Shield was ending and were delighted that SOA launched.

We are also thrilled to see talented actors like Ron Perlman, Mitch Pileggi, and well, everyone on the show, getting regular work. Can't wait to see Henry Rollins and Adan Arkin step into Charming.

KURT,
I HAVE BEEN SPREADING THE WORD SINCE YOUR FIRST EPISODE.GREAT SHOW FINILLY SOMETHING WORTH STAYING UP FOR.
I MUST TELL YOU THOUGH EVERY SINCE THAT FIRST SHOW I TOLD MY HUSBAND THAT OUR SON SHOULD BE ON THIS SHOW.
HE HAS BEEN RIDING SINCE HE WAS 8 Y/O. HE IS KNOWLEGABLE ABOUT BIKES,AND YES TATS AND GUNS.RIGHT UP YOUR SHOWES ALLY.HE MUST LOOK THE PART BECAUSE HE HAS BEEN PULLED OVER BY THE LOCAL PD BECAUSE HE "LOOKS LIKE" HE BELONGS TO THE LOCAL MCC HERE.
SO IF YOU NEED A BROTHER FOR TARA OR A LONG LOST ILLIGITAMENT SON FOR CLAY OR SOMETHING,GIVE US A CALL.
HE'S A GOOD LOOKING GUY TOO, I KNOW THAT HELPS WITH THE LADIES.
THANKS KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.
