Stephen Moyer, best known for playing Vampire Bill on True Blood and singing in the NBC live musical without a crocodile, will make his return to television in Kurt Sutter’s The Bastard Executioner, which premieres sometime in the fall. One of the reasons why Moyer agreed to star in the series is because he and his wife, Anna Paquin, were huge fans of Sons of Anarchy, so much so that they nearly played Charming’s most unrealistically well-groomed pimp and whore. Via EW:

“I was going to play a pimp and she was going to play a whore,” Moyer told EW exclusively. “We were trying to make it work. We were dead into it. The thing was, we agreed to have some time off after the end of True Blood, and we had already arranged it. Anna paid for the flights to New Zealand, and it happened that these bits and pieces were shooting while we were in New Zealand, and she hadn’t seen her family. We hadn’t been down there for ages. We just said we can’t do it, but we were obsessed with Sons, and it was date night tele for us in that macabre and weird, strange way that Sons of Anarchy became.”

Sons occasionally struggled with stunt casting, especially in the later seasons. For every Walton Goggins, who was fantastic, there was Lea Michele, or Joel McHale, or Courtney Love, none of whom added much to the story, except the opportunity to say, “Hey, that’s Lea Michele.” Then again, Vampire Bill’s fluctuating accent would’ve sounded right at home next to Jax Teller’s.
