Henry Rollins
If any one word describes Henry Rollins, it's 'intense.' Whether on the stage singing or speeding a Hummer along sand dunes while Steve-O gets a tattoo in the back seat, he has always emitted a visceral attitude. PopEater had a chance to sit down with Rollins and discuss his Sons of Anarchy role as a white supremacist.

Can you tell me a little bit about your role in 'Sons of Anarchy'?

Yeah, I'm a white supremacist, I have no redeeming qualities whatsoever, besides that I like my kids. Past that, I'm not the kind of 'bad guy' you root for... at all... He's not an emotional person so it...

TV Election Personalities: Giving Fresh Faces To This Election

October 21st, 2008 11:52am EDT
The View
It's nearing the end of October; do you know whom you're voting for? Most likely, yes, you've known for a while. And, depending on whom you're voting for and whether you watch political news programs, you probably fall into one of a few categories. If you're a die hard McCainiac, you might spend your evenings listening to Bill O'Reilly tell his guests to shut up. If you're an Obama mama, you may tune into Keith Olbermann's incessant barking. If you're for either but want a seemingly nonaffiliated program that maintains some entertainment value, Anderson Cooper might be what you're looking f...
