As any fan of Kurt Sutter knows, the Sons of Anarchy mastermind loves to include old friends as guest stars in his shows.
Sutter already has a fun history of recruiting actors from The Shield to join him in Charming, California. (Our faves: Walton Goggins, CCH Pounder, Kenny Johnson, and Michael Chiklis.) And now that production is underway on his new FX drama The Bastard Executioner, it’s only a matter of time before Sutter books another alum of SAMCRO.
“Actually, it’s so funny, I was thinking, ‘I wonder if we could have a medieval Venus Van Dam?’” Sutter tells EW exclusively. (For the uninformed, he’s referring to the transgender character on SOA played by the brilliant Goggins.) “What did transgender look like in the 1300s?”
Sutter already gave himself a head start on casting SOA types. Besides hiring his own wife Katey Sagal (a.k.a. Gemma Teller Morrow) as the mystical Annora of the Alders for TBX, he’s also recruited Timothy V. Murphy (SOA’s Galen O’ Shay) to play Father Ruskin. He’s even written a role for himself in the new medieval drama that stars newcomer Lee Jones and Stephen Moyer.
Then, of course, there’s Ed Sheeran, who didn’t star in SOA but covered Foy Vance’s “Make It Rain” for the drama’s penultimate episode. The singer-songwriter has been cast in a secret role for TBX’s first season.
So who’s the next SOA actor who is hoping to travel to the TBX set in Wales? First, we want you to guess!
The answer will be revealed Sunday. (UPDATE: Find out the answer here!)
