Cast celebrates season four

The cast of FX’s “Sons of Anarchy” arrived not in leather but suits to celebrate the premiere of season four at the ArcLight Cinerama Dome in Aug. 30.

Kristen Renton said she’s super-lucky to be on “SOA.”

“I grew up a tomboy so I feel most comfortable when I’m surrounded by big, loud, obnoxious, burly men,” said the thesp, who plays a pot-stirring porn star. “They’re just big giant teddy bears!”

Ron Perlman, who plays the motorcycle gang’s patriarch, said getting into his character was a worthwhile challenge. “By being as uncomfortable as I’m being, I’m much more alive, much more aware.”

Katey Sagal, the club’s matriarch, quipped that she just hopes her character stays alive in the coming seasons. “No really, that’s actually not that big of a joke,” she added.

The celebration continued at the SkyBar in WeHo.
