“Sons of Anarchy” Season 7 is currently being filmed, and according to series creator Kurt Sutter, recent addition Marilyn Manson has been giving him gifts.
“Every time Manson comes to a readthru he brings me a gift. Speaking for showrunners everywhere… thank you,” he wrote on Instagram and Twitter.
Manson, who has a recurring role in the upcoming season as white supremacist Ron Tully, appears to have given Suttern a book, “Sacred Numbers,” by Miranda Lundy.
In a note to him, Manson wrote: “To K.S. [Kurt Sutter], My sweet brother … The Big 7. I hope it cracks that code… To K.S. from M.M.”
This comes just a few days after Sutter teased that next season would contain a good deal of violence. “On a scale of 1 to Red Wedding, what are we in for here?” a person asked him on Twitter, and he replied: “Let’s just say you’ll soon be calling that other episode BED WETTING.”
It was announced a few weeks ago that Manson would be in next season, and he’ll contribute some music.
He said in a statement: “‘Sons’ has been such a big part of my life, as well as my father’s. 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 ‘Sons of Anarchy’ is about that relationship. So, now all I need is a motorcycle.”
Manson has had roles in TV and movies in the past, making appearances in David Lynch’s “Lost Highway,” “Jawbreaker,” and “Party Monster.” He also made guest appearances in “Eastbound and Down” and “Californication.”
“Sons of Anarchy” will return to FX this September.
