A fight between Jax (Charlie Hunnam) and Nero (Jimmy Smits) appears to take place at some point in Sons of Anarchy season 7, which is currently filming.
New pictures from the set show the characters brawling, while several SAMCRO members look on.
The pair were friends and business partners for a while but Nero found out some information that he perceived as a betrayal by Jax. By the end of season 6, the two appeared set for a showdown.
Hunnam’s stunt double was coordinating the fight sequence, which the blonde actor then performed, according to the photos.
Hunnam threw Nero down onto a foam mat, before the stunt double completed the sequence sans the mat.
Both Hunnam and his double were wearing leather biker bests, a long knife in a sheath, denim trousers, leather gloves, and white tennis shoes.
Season 7, which is set to premiere in September, will be the last for the FX show.
Creator Kurt Sutter has said that there will be a lot of violence in the season while some actors have expressed that pretty much all the main characters may die.
A few weeks ago, Sutter described his work on the upcoming season.
“We are in the process of breaking episode 7, which is usually a big episode for us,” he at the time, according to his YouTube channel. “It’s sort of, it ends up being … the same way a premiere sets in motion the bigger elements of the season, episode 7 tends to bring some of those things to some sort of conclusion, then sets up what will ultimately be some of the bigger story elements that will bring us into the end of the season.”
After episode 4, he added, “it just gets darker.”
It was also announced that rocker Marilyn Manson would be featured in the show as a regular. Manson will be portraying white supremacist Ron Tully.
“Sons has been such a big part of my life, as well as my father’s,” Manson said in a press release a few weeks ago. “So I was determined to make him proud by being involved in what will probably be remembered as the most amazing piece of television cinema. After all, the very heart of SOA is about that relationship. So, now all I need is a motorcycle.”
