'Sons of Anarchy' Season 5: Harold Perrineau says there's 'not a lot of difference' between him and drug kingpin Damon Pope

Zap2it: In the new season of FX's "Sons of Anarchy," premiering Tuesday, Sept. 11, you play Damon Pope, a former drug kingpin whose daughter died at the hands of biker gang member Tig (Kim Coates). What did you think when you first got the role?Harold Perrineau: I was a little concerned about myself. I was like, "Can I pull it off?'' And then I thought about it a little bit more, and I think it's the thing I pulled off in my life, if I consider my background, and then the person you see here today. There's not a lot of difference internally between that character and Damon Pope's character.Zap2it: Could you explain that a bit more?Harold Perrineau: My mom passed away a couple of years ago, and one of my cousins said to me, "I'm just so glad you made it. I was really scared that you would die before you ever became a...

Harold Perrineau is getting in touch with his meaner side this season on Sons of Anarchy . The season opener (Tuesday, Sept. 11, 10/9c, FX) will find the former Oz and Lost actor playing Damon Pope, a dangerous adversary for the club — understandable, given that SAMCRO was responsible for the death of his daughter last season.

Countdown to Sons of Anarchy Part One - "Sovereign"

In exactly one week Sons of Anarchy will kick off its fifth season on FX, and to help prepare you for the return of one of television's best Dramas, ever, TVOvermind will be running a series of articles offering a spoiler lite look into the themes, plot, and characters of what I feel will be the best season ever of SOA.  Let's start with a single word:  "Sovereign". The word "Sovereign" is not only the title of the Sons of Anarchy season 5 premiere, it also seems to pack quite a bit of weight thematically in an overall sense.  On its own the word means a ruler or authority figure, or a group that possesses the power.  I'm sure in a superficial sense this is exactly what SOA creator and Executive Producer Kurt Sutter is referring to overtly, with the top layer being Jax's (Charlie Hunnam) ascent to the head of the table, and in the developing story-lines with Sons of Anarchy 's new characters like Damon Pope (Harold Perrineau) and Nero (Jimmy Smits), each symbolizing very different takes on how Sovereignty can be wielded. How different? Well, let's just say that Damon Pope's method of distributing power has to be seen to be appreciated. Read More...

'Sons of Anarchy' Season 5 pictures: Jax at the head of the table

The fifth-season premiere of "Sons of Anarchy" will introduce SAMCRO's new adversary, but there's also a lot of unresolved tension within the club in the wake of last season's events.Season 5 picks up a couple weeks after Opie (Ryan Hurst) shot Clay (Ron Perlman) and set off a realignment of the power. Jax (Charlie Hunnam) is now the president -- you can see the patch on his vest -- but the old adage "uneasy lies the head that wears the crown" definitely applies here.The photos FX has released from the episode are mostly tight closeups of SAMCRO members sitting around the table, but there are also a couple shots of Harold Perrineau ("Lost") as Damon Pope, a well-dressed Oakland gangster who has it out for the club after Tig (Kim Coates) inadvertently killed Pope's daughter at the end of last season.Speaking of Tig, this shot suggests he's pretty aware of the turmoil surrounding the club.Clay,...
