Manson reveals himself in TV role

Marilyn Manson has posted a shot of himself filming a tense scene in the Sons Of Anarchy final season.

He agreed to play white supremacist Ron Tully partly because he and his dad are such fans of the show.

The scene appears to be a prison showdown between Manson’s character and Jax Teller, played by star Charlie Hunnam.

The shock-rocker says via Twitter: “This isn’t brunch. Tough acting like you want to kill your favourite character.” He adds on Instagram: “Someone is gonna be someone else’s bitch in this scenario – stare-down contest.

“It’s a gift from God to get a day-job playing a felon, rather than the opposite.”

Sons Of Anarchy’s seventh season begins airing in the US in September.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
