Marilyn Manson is set to appear in the third season of the Starz series “American Gods.”
According to Deadline, the rocker will portray Johan Wengren, the bloodthirsty frontman of a Viking death metal band named Blood Death.
“As a long-time admirer of his estimable talent as an author, artist, musician and actor, it is dope indeed to be working with Mr. Manson in Season 3 of American Gods,” showrunner Chic Eglee said.
Eglee added, “Bringing his specific energy, wit and boundless enthusiasm for all-things-Neil Gaiman to the role of Johan, a Norse ‘berserker’ in service to Odin, his performance promises to be disturbing, original and uniquely entertaining.”
Manson, who last acted in WGN‘s “Salem,” and also played a part in the final season of FX‘s “Sons of Anarchy,” made his acting debut in David Lynch‘s 1997 film Lost Highway.
Manson’s new album, featuring Shooter Jennings, is likely to be out later this year.
