‘Sons of Anarchy’ Star Teases “A Very Different Jax” for Season 5
'Sons of Anarchy' fans are eager for look at the upcoming Season 5 of the show, particularly given how Jax Teller's position elevated and changed over the course of season 4 finale "To Be, Act 2." SAMCRO has a whole new world of hurt upon it based on the whirlwind of recent castings for new and old villains alike, but what does Charlie Hunnam himself have to say about Jax in the new season?
'Sons of Anarchy' season 5 won't premiere until sometime this September (hopefully with some footage or a trailer to display at this year's San Diego Comic-Con) but things in Charming are going to be very different when we return. Not only did Jax finally ascend the throne and take his place at the head of SAMCRO, having deposed his surrogate father Clay Morrow (Ron Perlman), but a whole host of new enemies will be out for blood.
Still, now that Jax has finally resigned himself to life in the club, can viewers expect a new attitude? Actor Charlie Hunnam recently spoke to TVLine on what to expect from Jax this year, saying:
Jax has been battling for four seasons about [staying with the club or leaving], and at the end of last year, he absolutely made the decision that he was going to stay. So, energetically, it’s a very different Jax.
He’s not jumping up and down with excitement and full of gung ho, but he’s resigned to be here. And if he is going to be here, he’s going to make it work. This is a much more calm, mature, practical and driven Jax, which is going to be really exciting and fun to play. I don’t think Jax is going to be crying as much.
That isn't to say that Jax wouldn't ever have some kind of exit strategy in the future, but for now Hunnam believe Jax to be firmly entrenched in SAMCRO.
