Sons of Anarchy’s Theo Rossi Says Juice Is ‘Crying Clown’ In Season 5

Season 5 of Sons of Anarchy is in full swing, with the debut episode breaking all records for ratings for any show ever airing on FX. Now as the heat turns up with the new big bad Damon Pope making all kinds of trouble for the boys in SAMCRO, more stories from previous seasons will rear their ugly heads.

Last season was the toughest, but most telling for Juan-Carlos ‘Juice’ Ortiz, as he had to suffer silently as the cops twisted him in the wind with threats of telling his club that he actually had an African-American father unless he turned informant. The race issues broke down barriers in terms of telling the inner workings of biker clubs, or any social club really, but at the center of it actor Theo Rossi shined as a tortured soul who lived with shame while trying to deal with the fact that he was ratting out his friends at the same time. Ultimately, the cops decided to let him go from his obligation after the entire operation was shut down at the season’s end, but that doesn’t mean you get out from under the thumb of law enforcement so easily.

“Juice is just the clown crying on the inside. He’s trying to act as if. Like when he came into that chapel at the end of Season 4 and Jax said ‘are you alright?’ and he says ‘yeah, I’m good,’ and he took that picture of his father and the ATF, and realized it’s all good and got rid of the files. You know, that’s not the case,” Rossi told SuicideGirls in an exclusive interview. “So this is a guy who’s living with secrets and secrets eventually turn to shame and how that all plays out we’ve just got to watch and see.”

Juice already felt the sting from last season in the debut episode when Sheriff Eli Roosevelt looks for a little ‘good faith’ help from his past informant when trying to find dirt in the new found war between the Sons of Anarchy and the Oakland street gang the One-Niners. The new president of the motorcycle club Jax Teller also knows there was something dirty going on within his group from a drug sting that only could have happened from the inside.

Will Juice’s dirty little secret be revealed this season or is he destined to face the wrath of SAMCRO if they find out he was the rat that outed their drug scheme to the cops?

Sons of Anarchy Season 5 continues every Tuesday night at 10 PM on FX.
