Acting isn’t exactly new territory for Marilyn Manson. In addition to acting like America’s villain for much of the ’90s, he’s also appeared on HBO’s Eastbound and Down, and more recently on Sons of Anarchy where he portrayed a white supremacist. Yet he hasn’t been in that many films, until now, as he’ll be in the new film Let Me Make You A Martyr as a native American hitman called Pope and will reunite with his Sons of Anarchy’s former cast mates Mark Boone Jr. and Niko Nicotera. Manson says:
“Mark brought me into the project, we were friends from Sons of Anarchy. He’s sort of my unwanted mentor. He tells me what to do. He’s always encouraged me, but he’s very bossy about it. He says things like, ‘You gotta do this, motherfucker. You’ll like this.'”
This isn’t the only project where Manson and Boone Jr. will work together as the duo will also appear on the upcoming film Street Level with Machete’s Danny Trejo and Godsmack’s frontman Sully Erna; plus a TV series Boone Jr. has been working on called Dave and Shim.
