If you’ve been dutifully following “Sons of Anarchy” all the way through season 6 then you know more than one actor met his or her death during the season. That being said, TV Over Mind revealed on Jan. 29 which of the actors landed a series of his own.
Ron Perlman, who played Clay Morrow “Sons of Anarchy” met his death in season 6 and has a new contract to star in Hand of God” which Amazon will produce. The deal has been in the works for a while but couldn’t be revealed because word of Perlman’s new gig could have spoiled Clay’s onscreen death on ‘Sons.’ Here is the blind item posted by TV Line before any of it could be made public:
“A prospective new TV pilot just landed a big-time actor as its star, but the up-and-coming producer/writer behind the future series can’t pitch it to a single network. Heck, he can’t even discuss it with anyone — and that’s because there’s a spoiler bomb embedded within the top-secret project. You see, the headliner in question is currently starring on a popular hour-long drama series. And if word were to get out that he has committed himself to a new full-time gig, it could potentially ruin a major upcoming twist: his onscreen death.”
Ben Watkins, the executive producer of “Burn Notice” will do the writing for the Amazon show which centers on powerful Judge Harris Pernell (Perlman). He’s described as a hard-living man not afraid to bend the law. Though married, he has a high-end call girl he keeps on the side. She begins hearing voices through Pernell’s ventilator-bound sound. These could be messages from God and she has a religious awakening.
“Hand of God” sounds pretty interesting and we wish Ron Perlman all the best in his new series.
