Sons of Anarchy‘s final season promises to be one big Love-fest!
The FX drama has tapped rocker Courtney Love to join Season 7 in a pivotal, multi-episode arc, TVLine has learned exclusively.
In what marks her dramatic TV acting debut, Love will play Ms. Harrison, the straight-shooting preschool teacher of Jax’s eldest son, Abel. Look for Love’s educator to take a special interest in Abel — which will likely spark an interesting reaction from the boy’s mother Wendy (newly-minted series regular Drea de Matteo).
Love, who put the brakes on her acting career of late, won raves (and a Golden Globe nod) for her supporting work in 1996′s The People vs. Larry Flynt. Roles in the Andy Kaufman biopic Man on the Moon and the Kiefer Sutherland drama Beat followed.
This is hardly the first time SOA has gone to the music well to cast key parts. Dave Navarro recurred as a gang member in Seasons 5 and 6. And Marilyn Manson is set to appear in Season 7 as a prison power player who has dealings with Jax.
SOA Season 7 bows this fall. Love will debut in Episode 4.
