Did you ever want to listen to Sons of Anarchy Executive Producer Kurt Sutter muse about being a writer, dish on why he’s socially awkward, explain what it’s like to play an anti-hero, and if that wasn’t enough, admit how he felt about allowing his own character to be gang-banged on TV? If so, then we’ve found the perfect interview for you today.
Back in March 2014, mere months before the final episode of Sons of Anarchy, Kurt sat down with Speakeasy’s Paul Tompkins, to delve on all we mentioned in the paragraph above. He talks about what writing means to him, how that affects his social skills and abilities, why he’s so attached to the idea of an anti-hero, and why he’s done what he’s done to poor Otto Delaney.
Check out the interview for yourself below, and tell us in the comments if anything Kurt dished on here surprised you. We’re still in shock over how rough Otto had it in Sons of Anarchy; do you think what Kurt did to Otto was some form of internal self-punishment? Or do you think it was all done up for shock value?
