Charlie Hunnam has suggested that he will be playing a "different Jax" on Sons of Anarchy.

The English actor - who has played biker Jax Teller on the FX drama since 2008 - told TVLine that the character will be "much more calm, mature, practical and driven" in the upcoming fifth season.

"Jax has been battling for four seasons about [staying with the club or leaving]," he explained. "And at the end of last year, he absolutely made the decision that he was going to stay. So, energetically, it's a very different Jax.

"He's not jumping up and down with excitement and full of gung ho, but he's resigned to be here. And if he is going to be here, he's going to make it work. [It's] going to be really exciting and fun to play."

However, Hunnam added that Jax will always have an "exit strategy" to escape from the SAMCRO biker club.

"I'm sure in the back of Jax's mind there's still going to be some exit strategy, but that's not for a long way off at this point," he said.

Sons of Anarchy will return with new episodes later in 2012, with a sixth season already commissioned and a seventh run also being planned.
