Marilyn Manson will star in 'Sons Of Anarchy' for the forthcoming final season and is hoping to make his father proud.
Marilyn Manson has joined the cast of 'Sons of Anarchy' for the final season.
The 45-year-old rocker will play ''a white supremacist prison shot-caller'' named Ron Tully, who is set to help the show's protagonist Jackson 'Jax' Teller (Charlie Hunnam) ''expand his power base'' in the programme, which portrays police and motorcycle gangs in California.
Manson and his dad, Hugh Warner, have always been huge fans of the show which was created by Kurt Sutter, and the shock rocker admitted he is joining the programme to make his father proud.
He said:'''Sons' has been such a big part of my life, as well as my father's.
''The very heart of 'SOA' is about [the father-son] relationship ... 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.''
Manson - whose real name is Brian Hugh Warner - has previously appeared in shows including 'Californication', 'Once Upon a Time' and 'Eastbound & Down'.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
