Kurt Sutter already confirmed that a Sons of Anarchy spin-off is on the way but has been less generous leaking details about the show’s rumored prequel.
Sadly, reports indicated that Charlie Hunnam would not be involved in the project.
For starters, Hunnam admitted that Sutter is hard at work developing the new show. He also explained how it will dive into the origins of motorcycle culture in the U.S. and will be set in the 1950s and ’60s.
“But again, I could be wrong,” Hunnam told the outlet during comic-con in San Diego. “And listen I’m unemployed right now so if they want to give me a job that’s all good with me.”
Of course, if Hunnam does work with Sutter again, he might not have his famous six-pack abs. According to Parent Herald, the actor is tired of all the work it takes to keep in top shape and is looking forward to eating whatever he wants.
“You know I’ve been doing a lot of very physical work that last 16, 17 years and I’m starting to get tired. I’m starting to get old. I want to eat some hamburgers and just relax.”
At the same time, Hunnam also explained how he only bulked up to gain a mental age. Apparently, his toned abs and muscles had nothing to do with looking good for the camera.
“To feel formidable and to feel like I could hold my own in you know, against these big dudes that they put me up against, I needed to train every day,” Hunnam added. “And it was much more about like feeling the right psychology than like some sort of aesthetic… or desire.”
Although fans might see a very different Hunnam in the future, the idea of him teaming up with Sutter is great. After all, Sons of Anarchy remains one of FX’s most successful dramas to date.
Speaking of Sons of Anarchy, Comic Book is reporting that after the show ended its seven-year run, Hunnam actually stole a motorcycle from the set.
Apparently, the actor got away with a 2003 Dyna Super Glide from Harley-Davidson and hasn’t given the bike back yet.
“I stole so f*****g much, let me tell you. I stole my car, my bike; I stole the rings,” Hunnam said. “Yes, I stole the bike. Hell yeah! It’s in my garage. It was like one of those weird things that like a kid does. I stole it, but I’ve never used it.”
While fans are certainly excited about the prospects of Charlie Hunnam being on the Sons of Anarchy prequel, the setting might prevent Hunnam from making a cameo. According to Comic Book, Hunnam’s character, Jax Teller, wasn’t alive in the ’50s or ’60s.
“I do believe it is happening, but I don’t think I’m a part of it, because I wasn’t born when that was happening,” Hunnam explained when asked about the prequel. “I believe it’s sort of like an origin of motorcycle culture in America. I’m really just making it up, because I don’t know any facts.”
With the details of the prequel still unconfirmed, Sutter is currently filming for the new Sons of Anarchy spin-off, Mayans MC.
In contrast to the prequel, the spin-off centers on a different motorcycle club who were rivals in Sons of Anarchy. The show will take a closer look at motorcycle culture through the lens of Latin America.
Hunnam can next be seen in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword which hits theaters on March 24, 2017.
