Sons of Anarchy fans, prepare to see Jax Teller and Clay Morrow like you’ve never seen them before.

OK, well, Jax — actor Charlie Hunnam, that is — doesn’t sport the blonde beard his biker character on the FX drama wears in his latest film 3, 2, 1…Frankie Go Boom, and Clay’s — Ron Pearlman — not speaking behind big sunglasses and through a cigar in the comedy, either.

As a warning, what Pearlman’s doing in this movie will most certainly shock you. Surely, you’ll never look at him the same way again. Hit the jump to read 3, 2, 1…Frankie Go Boom’s premise and watch the trailer.


3, 2, 1…Frankie Go Boom tells the story of Frankie Bartlett, played by Hunnam, who has been the victim of numerous videotaped pranks over the years by his brother, Bruce, played by Chris O’Dowd. Having just gotten out of prison, Bruce is off drugs and has finally seemed to turn his life around.

And because this is a comedy, that is most certainly not the case.

See, Frankie’s met a girl, Lassie, played by Lizzy Caplan, and when the two become intimate, Frankie stars in yet another of his brother’s torturous films. Somehow, the tape finds its way into the hands of Lassie’s father, and the brothers engulf on a mission to get it back.

3, 2, 1…Frankie Go Boom is set for an Oct. 12 release. Check out the trailer below.

    I think it could be pretty good too. It seems like it could have a lot of heart (in retrospect, I should say I agree with that review at the end of the trailer in which it say ‘a comedy with heart’), which has definitely been a trend in comedies in the last decade or so — at least in comedies that get it right. You could still get really hard, biting laughs through ridiculous premises, but there’s a sweetness to them; characters genuinely care about each other and are developed fantastically. I think this movie could have that same feel. I guarantee, had this movie been made in the 90s, there would have been a million sex jokes in them as well as the sibling rivalry angle played to 1000.
