Just when you thought ‘Sons of Anarchy’ couldn’t get any crazier, it was announced that shock rocker Marilyn Manson will be joining the cast in a recurring role for the 7th and final season.
Rumors have been floating around for months that he would be appearing on the show and now they’ve been confirmed. He will be playing a character named Ron Tully, a white-supremacist prison shot-caller who will be allied with Jax (Charlie Hunnam) and help him expand his power base.
This latest news makes me wonder if Jax,at least temporarily, will be jailed for his wife Tara’s (Maggie Siff) murder.
As fans know Jax’s mother Gemma (Katey Segal) killed Tara at the end of season 6 in one of the shows most brutally raw moments. SAMCRO member Juice (Theo Rossi) came and helped Gemma cover up the murder, so when cops arrived they found Jax holding Tara’s lifeless body with the gun lying nearby-making him look like suspect number 1.
This gives credence to the theory Jax will be arrested, but is jut one of many possible plot lines. However Sutter puts them together, it will be interesting to see the dynamic between these 2 characters unfold.
Manson, and his father are huge ‘Sons of Anarchy’ fans and Manson had nothing but praise for the show and its creator Kurt Sutter, that diabolical genius.
Upon announcing that he would be joining the show Manson told reporters he was eager to make his dad proud since he is such a huge fan and that he was thrilled at the opportunity to be a part of “…what will probably be remembered as the most amazing piece of television cinema”.
Indeed, ‘Sons of Anarchy’ is the best hour on TV and this last season should surpass all the rest. Sutter and his writers have said it will be a “satisfying” ending for the fans.
Filming has begun for ‘Sons of Anarchy’s’ final season and will air this September on FX.
