“I’m loving Season 5,” actor Ron Perlman told us, with regard to the upcoming season of Sons of Anarchy.

In this interview with Perlman, the actor takes us through Clay Morrow’s downward spiral. Although his club, his wife and his health have been “ripped” from him, fans shouldn’t count Clay out of the picture. Perlman let us know that Clay will be working out what he “intends to do” about his various losses from Season 4 in the coming episodes.

“It’s probably the most fun season of all for me,” Perlman said. He’s playing the exact same character, but now he’s lost all of his lifelines. Could this mean we can expect a more strategic, cutthroat Clay in seasons five through six? It’s hard to imagine a more devious Clay after everything that happened in the first four seasons. Starting with Donna and moving forward through spousal abuse and his attack on Piney (William Lucking) – not to mention his history with John Teller – we’ve seen first hand just how deplorable Clay’s actions have been.

Perlman considers the character “larger than life,” and let us know that it was the most “challenging” role of his career. Typically, his roles have an “underachieving” side to them, yet Clay has absolutely “no humor about himself.”

What are you most looking forward to in the coming season of Sons of Anarchy?

Typo:  ”Perlam considers the character…” It’s Ron Perlman, not Perlam.

 Thanks for letting us all know. We would be lost without you.

Exactly…we know who he is.

Damn it Ron Perlman, why are you and your voice so damn sexy?! Seriously, it’s distracting from the story!
