The episode, which aired on FX on Tuesday, featured a storyline about a young boy who pulls a gun out of his backpack and begins shooting in school.

Bosses at the PTC have urged those outraged by the plotline to contact their local politicians and call for them to back a bill that would allow consumers to purchase customisable cable options, instead of receiving a package which would automatically include the FX channel.

The Pacific Rim star started collecting swords and axes from second hand fairs after realising his pad had become a target for thieves following one back yard encounter with an intruder.

Del Toro has since rehired the Sons of Anarchy star for his next project, horror story Crimson Peak, a...

Charlie Hunnam
Actor Charlie Hunnam had to plan his bathroom breaks well in advance while filming new sci-fi epic Pacific Rim because designers forgot to make allowances in his robot costume so he could easily relieve himself.

The Sons of Anarchy star portrays the leader of a team of soldiers who pilot giant mechanical robots in a bid to save the world against an alien invasion, but Hunnam found the heavy monster suit a pain to wear for more than one reason.

He says, "Wearing that suit created traction on my shoulder so it was like someone pushing down on me for 14 hours a day.

You know that he's always going to give a watchable performance, whether it's his SAG Award-winning role as Michael Dawson on Lost, his pitch-perfect co...

Mo McRae knows how to handle himself amongst heavyweights. He's gone from standing next to Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in the film Gridiron Gang to joining the One-Niners as Tyler on FX's Sons of Anarchy. But don't let the filmography fool you: he's only a tough guy on-screen - off of it, he's a pleasure to be around. So who's the real Mo McRae?

His story began at a young age. "It started in high school," he said of when he developed his interest in acting. "I played basketball in high school and pretty serious about that [but] we had a pretty good drama department at my high school a...

Q&A: Jeff Hephner Talks 'Boss' And His TV Fandom

October 14th, 2011 11:45am EDT
Something must be going right for Boss: Starz renewed the Kelsey Grammer-led political drama for season two well before next Friday's series premiere. I recently sat down with star Jeff Hephner to find out what's so intriguing about Chicago politics and how his character, Ben Zajac, fits into the picture.

Ben is an idealist, who grew up in Chicago and whose passion for his hometown caused him to leave a lucrative law career for the murky world of public service. His charisma is not scripted; it's courtesy of Hephner, who is as affable and charming as they come. If that's not ende...
