Great to speak with you today, Kim. I’m a huge fan of movies that embrace this kind of super violence, so I’m really looking forward to seeing Officer Downe. That being said, it also seems to have this great story grounding it as well. What did you see in this project initially?

Kim Coates: I’m not really from this genre. I barely watched my own show Sons of Anarchy because of lack of time, and I’m just all over the map in a really good way. When this was offered to me, fifteen, sixteen months ago, my people said, “Oh my god, you need to read this right now and they want you to play the title character. Would you read it?” And I did.

Halfway through this thing, I stopped. I put it down. I said, “This is based on something, right?” They said, “Yeah, a comic book.” I said, “I’m going to go out and get it.” I went out to this beautiful little comic book shop in Pasadena and picked up this hard copy of Officer Downe, which was created by Joe Casey and Chris Burnham.

I turned this book over, and the first scene is so graphic and sexual and funny, that I just went, “Oh my god, they’re writing it just like the comic book.” As I went through the comic book, it was so violent and so in your face. The thing that I really needed to talk to Joe Casey about was whether or not this cop is a good cop. And he is; he’s a good cop through and through. It’s in the future. It’s in LA. I’ve died in real life and they put him on ice hoping in the future they can come up with some sort of technology that would bring this cop back. Well, they did, and so he’s been brought back. I die four or five times in this film. It’s so freaking R-rated. It’s just off the hook, and I’m so proud of this.

Kim Coates is known to “Sons of Anarchy” fans for his portrayal of Alex “Tig” Trager. The prolific actor has been busy.

Q. What is your best vacation memory?
A. My wife and I visited Tanzania to see our daughter, who was working there for a nonprofit. When we experienced the people, the mud huts, the safaris, it was just beyond magical and we’ll never forget it, ever. It was an incredible, life-changing travel experience.

Q. If you’ve ever gone away for the holidays, which was the best trip?
A. Being Canadian, I have a big family with lots of crazy, beautiful relatives. (For three straight years, starting) when I was 14 years old, we would all meet at this Christmas lodge in Alberta where there were more fireplaces than logs. We played amazing games of Risk, had shenanigans on the frozen pond, jumped into a snowbank from an uber-hot sauna and had cinnamon bun eating contests. I mean, it was incredible! It was so much fun that it was like being in Vegas with no clocks on the wall and we just kept going and going.

19 Dec 2015 Mireia || Movies, News, True Memoirs Of An International Assassin

Netflix has the services of Kevin James already engaged starring in new hapless hero action comedy The True Memoirs Of An International Assassin. The film has now added former Sons Of Anarchy man Kim Coates to the cast.

The cameras are currently rolling under the direction of Kick-Ass 2’s Jeff Wadlow. Jeff Morris wrote the script, which finds the actor as a mild-mannered accountant who dreams of becoming a thriller writer. But when his fictional novel about the life of an international assassin is published as a true story, he’s mistaken for a real hired killer and becomes something of a celebrity.

Trying to escape his newfound infamous status, he escapes to Belize but is there entangled in an assassination plot. To keep his head, he’ll need to channel the character he created – Colt Rodgers – and draw on the skills he’s only chronicled on the page before if he wants to save the day.

Deadline’s report makes no mention of what Coates will be doing, but he’s often called upon to be a tough guy threat in comedies, so perhaps he’ll be making James’ life more difficult. Last seen here on the big screen in Goon, he’ll be back for sequel Goon: Last Of The Enforcers, plus a variety of indie movies including Officer Downe, Strange Weather and The Land.

21 Jul 2015 Mireia || Big Brothers Big Sisters

A Niagara motorbike tour led by stars of a world-famous crime drama has raised at least $35,000 for a mentorship program.

Canadian Sons of Anarchy actor Kim Coates, who plays Tig, joined U.S. castmate Mark Boone Junior to lead the Big Brothers Big Sisters of St. Catharines-Thorold and District’s Ride for Kids Sake.

The event, now in its third year, helps raise cash for their Game On! group mentoring program for boys and young men.

“We left from the Pen Centre, rode around for an hour” said Coates, 57, kicking-back after the Saturday tour. “So we dipsy-doodled through tons of acreages, through vineyards and gorgeous country.

His friend Boone, who plays Bobby in Sons, added his thoughts during an interview with local media inside a trailer at the Pen Centre: “We saw old houses and new houses, intermixed,” said the bearded actor. “Swamps, forests, maples!”

“And the cops did a great job stopping the intersections, so we didn’t stop once,” Coates added. About 15 VIP riders joined the group, with the main ride bringing in about 250 biker/fundraisers.

“We had a nice turnout … last year, we made about $35,000 and we’ll make more this year,” Coates said.

“It’s really all good.”

Coates says he cares strongly about the charitable cause, “and I’m Canadian (from Saskatoon), and it worked out perfectly with my timing; right now I’m filming Goon 2 in Toronto.”

Sons of Anarchy ended last year after seven seasons and both actors say they’ve continued working.

“It was a long time, seven years,” Coates reflected.
