Popular Hollywood celebrity Brad Pitt may be starring in the much-awaited “Sons of Anarchy” prequel, but Charlie Hunnam, who played Jax Teller and is synonymous with the TV show, is struggling to shine as an actor. He has been apparently overshadowed by the FX TV series. The English actor has been having a hard time making a mark in Hollywood.

Meanwhile, if “Sons of Anarchy” fans thought it’s all over once the show ended after seven seasons, they thought wrong. Nothing’s over for the franchise and the much-anticipated prequel is already underway.

Added to that, talks are also being held for a possible spinoff about the Mayans as well. The cast will be back together for a reunion in Houston, Texas, scheduled to be held from May 27-29, 2016 for the prequel and the spinoff.

“Did you read that about Brad Pitt maybe playing my dad? Brad Pitt as John Teller. How awesome would that be?,” said Hunnam in an interview with Men’s Journal.

However, Hunnam has been having a difficult time in handling his acting projects even though he has been offered quite a few. He even dropped out of many big screen roles in past years, writes Youth Health.

The 35-year-old Hunnam backed out of “Fifty Shades of Grey,” where he was slated to play Christian Grey. His role in “The Mountain Between Us,” opposite Rosamund Pike, was also offered to Idris Elba. There are rumours that Hunnam may also be moving out of the “Pacific Rim 2” movie due to his other commitments, such as being Green Arrow.

Hunnam is also not so sure of reprising his role of Jax Teller in “Sons of Anarchy” prequel, although Pitt will be starring in the new cast playing Teller’s father. Hunnam expressed his sadness over the death of his character in the end on the show and that the show got cancelled. However, he is quite charged up to see Pitt having a role in the prequel.

Looking at Hunnam dropping out of projects, his fans who loved him in “Sons of Anarchy” are clueless about what he is up to. If he does not up his ante, it will be very difficult for him to stay relevant in this highly competitive world of acting. Numerous celebrities have failed in Hollywood after promising starts, reports Inquisitr.
