Ultimately, the hit FX drama, Sons of Anarchy, has harnessed lots of realism by means of casting genuine Hells Angels in a number of roles. It’s long been true that Kurt Sutter, the originator of Sons of Anarchy, consults with members of the Hells Angels and has now cast a few in terrific roles. Sutter continues to raise the standards in realistic, gritty writing.
