‘Sons of Anarchy’ season 7: Details on Marilyn Manson character in last season

Fans have known for some time that Marilyn Manson would be joining the season 7 cast of “Sons of Anarchy” in some capacity. Yahoo! Celebrity revealed on June 2 that the 45-year-old rocker is taking on the role, in part, to honor his father.

Manson’s character will be a “white supremacist prison shot-caller'' who goes by the name of Ron Tully. His role will be to help Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam), leader of the “Sons of Anarchy,” expand his base of power.

While the show about the California motorcycle club features relationships of all kinds, it has always had a strong focus on the bond between father and son. With Jax as the central character, the show has explored what it means to be a son, a stepson and a father, something both Manson and his own dad can relate to.

Manson, whose real name is Brian Hugh Warner, and his dad, Hugh Warner have long been avid fans of the show. He admitted he is joining the show created by Kurt Sutter in part to make his dad proud.

"Sons' has been such a big part of my life, as well as my father's,” the musician said. ''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.''

This is not Manson’s first foray into acting. He has made appearances previously on “Californication”, “Once Upon a Time” and “Eastbound & Down.”

Season 7 of “Sons of Anarchy” will be the final season for the gang from Charming. Though the series is expected to air in September, no premiere date has been released yet.
