Charlie Hunnam wants to be part of the upcoming Sons of Anarchy spinoff, Mayans MC. But wait, didn’t he… y’know? (“Y’know” = “Commit suicide by getting hit a truck driven by The Thing from Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, which probably ruined the poor guy’s life, he still has nightmares about that horrible day when he was just trying to get home to his four kids.”)
Jax Teller is dead, but Hunnam, who will next appear in Guy Ritchie’s bonkers-looking King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, has some ideas of how creator Kurt Sutter can get around that. “Listen, if they call me, if they want me to do a little dream sequence,” he told TMZ, “I’ll do anything for Jax, I love that guy, but I think I’m dead.” Death hasn’t stopped literally every character on fellow-FX series American Horror Story, and it shouldn’t stop Mayans MC, either.
When the TMZ reporter noted viewers didn’t actually see Jax die, Hunnam responded, “Do you know what, can I tell you something? I actually haven’t seen the last season of Sons yet, so I didn’t seen how it ended.” He later added, “I just need a little bit of distance before I watch it so I can appreciate it and see it for what it is rather than what I wanted it to be.”
Considering the reaction to the finale, he might want to keep that distance.
