Marilyn Manson has been cast in a recurring role in the hit FX series "Sons Of Anarchy". Manson will play Ron Tully, a "white supremacist prison shot-caller" who Charlie Hunnam's character, "Sons Of Anarchy" president Jax, uses to expand his power base during the show's seventh season. The series is expected to return in September.

Manson said in a statement, "'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 'Sons Of Anarchy' is about that relationship. So, now all I need is a motorcycle."
Manson has been steadily working his way into television in the past couple of years, making appearances on Showtime's "Californication", the Sundance Channel's "Wrong Cops" and HBO's "Eastbound & Down", along with voicing a demonic character on ABC's "Once Upon A Time".
The shock-rocker made his TV scoring debut in April with the song "Cupid Carries A Gun", heard on the new WGN series "Salem".
Manson told The Hollywood Reporter that the song "was the last track we just finished for my new album," adding "I liked the themes of 'Salem'. It looks at the witch trials without being cliche like most modern films."
Manson has been working on his new album after spending most of last year touring behind 2012's "Born Villain".
