SPOILERS: 'Sons Of Anarchy' Rockmond Dunbar Dishes About Upcoming Season
Sons of Anarchy might not be the most family-friendly show on television, or even on FX, but it can certainly boast that it's one of the more daring. After the start of a relatively young fifth season that has already packed in a lot of surprising rivalries and character deaths (not to mention the real-life bizarre murder incident with former Sons of Anarchy star, Johnny Lewis), fans of Sons of Anarchy have a lot more to look forward to, says star Rockmond Dunbar, who plays Eli Roosevelt.
The proud actor also spills about what he thinks sets Sons of Anarchy apart from other shows out there on television. "The average–that we probably kill about six people every time the show comes on," he pointed out as a major distinction, reports Starpulse. "I don’t know any other show that does that unless a plane crashed or something, but it’s just so intense. I remember the writing on Prison Break during the first and second season was so good because they painted characters in a corner, and you never knew if they were going to be able to get out. I didn’t know if there was another show that could basically be like that and keep its intensity, but in the fifth season, Sons is continuing to do that."
And what's in store for his own character, Eli, since the death of his wife? "This dude is spiraling out of control, and he’s literally taking no prisoners," Dunbar said. "He’s lost everything that he built his life for. He took a job close to home where he thought that would bring his relationship to his wife a little bit closer. They’re trying to have a baby. She finally gets pregnant and then she’s killed. He has nothing. He has absolutely nothing. So, what do you do when you’re stripped away and who are you when you’re stripped away with all those things that you think created your life. So a lot of characters really need to be careful and to look out for this guy because he’s on the edge.”
You can catch Sons of Anarchy, which guest starred Community's Joel McHale just last week, Tuesdays on FX.
