UNION CITY, NJ—Recommending that he give himself the chance to pause and explore the other options out there, friends of local man Jonathan Gember expressed their concerns to reporters Wednesday that the 29-year-old is already committing to a new television show just hours after getting out of a seven-season-long series. “Jon just got through a long and emotionally involved show, so I don’t understand why he’s so eager to settle into something new right away,” said friend Meredith Wagner, adding that Gember should take some time to decompress and reflect on the 92 episodes he enjoyed with Sons of Anarchy rather than immediately dive in with season one of The Shield. “He ended things with that old show earlier this week, but it sounds like he’s already caught up in this new one pretty bad. I keep telling him that he should slow things down, but he’s practically spending every waking minute with it.” Wagner added that she thought it would benefit Gember to hold off on becoming too invested in another serious television show and instead “play the field” for a while by enjoying a series of noncommittal, one-night movie viewings.
