Sons of Anarchy Casts Marilyn Manson in FX Drama's Final Season

Once Upon a Time Marilyn Manson

The Antichrist Superstar is about to become an anarchist.

Marilyn Manson will recur as a white supremacist in Sons of Anarchy‘s upcoming seventh and final season, FX announced Thursday.

The provocative rocker’s character will be Ron Tully, a prison power player Jax uses to widen his sphere of influence.

Earlier this year, Sons showrunner Kurt Sutter hinted on a WTF Sutter webisode that the goth guru somehow would be involved in the FX drama’s last go-around.

Manson’s music has been featured in TV shows as diverse as Alias, Alphas and The Following. Last year, he provided the voice of The Shadow on Once Upon a Time.

Sons has been such a big part of my life, as well as my father’s,” Manson said in a statement.  “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.”

    Whatever keeps him away from the talking dead is good.

  2. Beth says:

    Maybe he will be good at it, but I just remember him when I was a teenager being a complete weirdo(which probably makes him the perfect fit :) ) So I guess we can assume by this that Jax is still prison bound by the premiere.

  3. Meg says:

    Gross. season 7 is going to be awful anyway.

  4. wrstlgirl says:

    Oh Boy, this will be interesting. I trust Sutter knows what he’s doing, LOL.

  5. yurie says:

    Marilyn needs to reach out and touch faith.

  6. steven says:

    Talk about type-casting.

  7. Beth says:

    I just puked a little.
    The incoherent babbling on Talking Dead made me want to reach through the TV and push him off the couch.
    This guy is irrelevant at best. So really this time, WTF Sutter? Please don’t let this ruin the final season on the best show on television.

      Yeah he was brutal to watch. That’s what happens when you do too many drugs.

      • Tundrabeast says:

        I agree, but as far as the Talking Dead goes…..I can’t figure why about a third of the guest panels are chosen for. I guess they have some fame in their professions, but often their knowledge and insights are so lame that they’d be better just taking the mike into the audience…..For opinion instead of questions

  8. Eliza says:

    Hmm. Okay. Although I am still on the fence whether I want to watch the mess that will be the last season….

  9. fatalsin says:

    Im very timid here with this casting… separately I do like MM as a musician but as an actor he has never had a stellar performance imo… so im worried..I love S.O.A and expect a certain level and I dont know if MM can get there

  10. KP says:

    No, we don’t want him on SOA! He can return to the Talking Dead!

  11. Ugh. I would much prefer Stephen King return.
