The musician will play Ron Tully, a white supremacist prison shot-caller who Jax (Charlie Hunnam) uses to expand his power base. Manson, who will make his debut in the Season 7 premiere, follows in the footsteps of fellow rocker Henry Rollins, who also played a white supremacist back in Season 2.
“'Sons' has been such a big part of my life, as well as my father’s,” Manson said in FX’s announcement. “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.”
In addition to Manson, TV Line reports that Annabeth Gish has been cast as Althea Jarry, the new sheriff in charge of investigating the murders of former sheriff Eli Roosevelt (Rockmond Dunbar) and Tara Knowles (Maggie Siff). The character, who has experience in Stockton's Organized Crime Unit, quickly realizes that she’ll have to work with SAMCRO to keep the peace, even if that means playing by their rules, though she has a few of her own that might surprise the club.
Gish will appear in multiple episodes of the FX drama's seventh and final season. The actress currently co-stars in the network's border drama "The Bridge," which returns for Season 2 on July 9.
Manson's TV roles include two episodes of Showtime's "Californication" and a small role in "Eastbound & Down" on HBO, while Gish has previously starred on "The X-Files" and Showtime's "Brotherhood."
"Sons of Anarchy" Season 7 will premiere on FX this fall.
