Here’s a look at some of his most recent interactions and the ones that stand out the most.
Q: Who was the worst president for the club, Jax or Clay?
Answer: "They were both good men with different leadership skills and different demos… A club may move forward or slide backward with different leaders, but it always survives."
Q: How did you pick music for SOA?
Answer: "Bob Thiele was my music supervisor and composer. I usually had an idea of what songs I wanted to use for the montages but Bob would usually pick the rest. As far as original pieces, I fancy myself a lyricist so I’d crank out the words and then Bob would do the rest…”
Q: Why did Zobelle get away in SOA Season 2?
Answer: "Because sometimes s— people live and the bad guy wins. There’s a lot of that going around these days…"
Q: What happened with the SOA prospect video game?
Answer: "The company went belly up. Had to refund everyone. I’m a big game so it was heartbreaking for me. We tried for years… just could never make the game idea work."
Q: Are you planning on working with Charlie Hunnam again?
Answer: "In a heartbeat. I’d love to find the right project. Something that would stretch the both of us and that’s not too reminiscent of SOA."
Q: What was going on with Tara when she got all frisky over Luann’s perfume after taking it to Otto?
Answer: "I forgot about that creepy scene. I think Tara had empathy for Otto. As weird and threatening as he was, she saw the sad, damaged side of him. The perfume was her way of letting him get lost in a good memory. You know, between the self-mutilations and being raped by prison guards."
