He will play a recurring character called Ron Tully in the biker show
Marilyn Manson is set to appear in Sons of Anarchy as a white supremacist.
The rocker will have a recurring role in the seventh series of the biker drama, writes Hollywood Reporter. His character will be called Ron Tully, a “white supremacist prison shot-caller”. Speaking in a statement, Manson said: “Sons has been such a big part of my life, as well as my father’s, so I was determined to make him proud by being involved in what will probably be remembered as the most amazing piece of television cinema. After all, the very heart of SOA is about that relationship. So, now all I need is a motorcycle.”
The role follows parts for Manson in television shows Eastbound & Down and Californication. He has also appeared in a number of films, including Lost Highway and Party Monster. Manson recently contributed a new song, entitled ‘Cupid Carries A Gun’, to the soundtrack of drama series Salem. The track was used during the title sequence of the show.
Manson is set to headline this year’s Alt-Fest. The appearance will be Manson’s only UK festival appearance of the year. The new hard rock, industrial and metal event will take place from August 15-17 at Boughton Estate in Kettering, Northamptonshire. Of Manson’s appearance, festival organiser Dominic Void has said: “We are ecstatic to have booked Marilyn Manson to headline for our first year; this means a lot to us and particularly our fans.”
Also playing Alt-Fest are Arch Enemy, Breed77, Cradle of Filth, Covenant, Fearless Vampire Killers, Fields of the Nephilim, Killing Joke, My Ruin and Peter Hook & The Light.
