at .

Ashley Tisdale? Jimmy Smiths? Joel McHale?

As if the developments that closed out Sons of Anarchy Season 4 weren't enough to whet the appetites of fans for this fall, the FX drama went ahead and signed up a series of intriguing guest stars.

How will each play a role going forward? Just how dark might things become? Is there any chance of a SOA musical episode? I asked all these questions and many more to one of our favorite casts at Comic-Con last weekend. Read/watch on for a rundown of exclusive red carpet interviews...


Let's start with Mr. President, Charlie Hunnam. What about the addition of Tisdale has this actor so worked up? It's not what you might think:

As for his First Lady, Maggie Siff gives us an idea of how her man's promotion will affect her character's relationship with Gemma:

And what kind of state will Gemma find herself in? How will she be dealing with her status as an outside? On word, Katey Sagal tells us, alcohol:

Why the selection of Tisdale? How will Smits fit in as Nero? Creator Kurt Sutter shoots down a Community crossover and tells all:

Warning: Tig will be off the leash on Sons of Anarchy Season 5. So warns Kim Coats in this one-on-one:

Yes, Opie will return. Where will his mind be? Ryan Hurst teases his character's arc:

Ron Perlman wasn't certain he'd still be around this season. What can we expect from an injured, thwarted Clay going forward?

Tommy Flanagan, meanwhile, talks up a promotion for Chibs and how his new role in the club will affect his actions and relationships:

Finally, Theo Rossi is coming off an incredibly dark turn as Juice. Any chance things lighten up for the former diaper-wearing biker?

Sons of Anarchy Quotes

Something happens at around 92 miles an hour - thunder-headers drown out all sound, engine vibrations travels at a heart's rate, field of vision funnels into the immediate and suddenly you're not on the road, you're in it. A part of it. Traffic, scenery, cops - just cardboard cutouts blowing over as you past. Sometimes I forget the rush of that. That's why I love these long runs. All your problems, all the noise, gone. Nothing else to worry about except what's right in front of you. Maybe that's the lesson for me today, to hold on to these simple moments. Appreciate them a little more - there's not many of them left. I don't ever want that for you. Finding things that make you happy shouldn't be so hard. I know you'll face pain, suffering, hard choices, but you can't let the weight of it choke the joy out of your life. No matter what, you have to find the things that love you. Run to them. There's an old saying, 'That what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger' I don't believe that. I think the things that try to kill you make you angry and sad. Strength comes from the good things - your family, your friends, the satisfaction of hard work. Those are the things that'll keep you whole. Those are the things to hold on to when you're broken.


Jax: I'm not going to turn into Clay.
Opie: I'm afraid I'm gonna turn into you.
