Sons of Anarchy season 7 will include at least two new cast members.
That would be Marilyn Manson, who landed a recurring role as white supremacist Ron Tully. Jax uses Tully, a prison shot-caller, to expand his power base.
Manson will make his debut in the premiere.
“Sons has been such a big part of my life, as well as my father’s,” Manson says 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.”
Also Annabeth Gish, known for playing Charlotte Millwright on The Bridge, has been added as the new sheriff.

Sheriff Eli Roosevelt was killed in the season 6 finale.
TVLine previously reported that the new sheriff, named Alice Johnson, is a fit Caucasian 4-something who is serious about her work but also has edgy humor.
Earlier this year, other cast commitments were clarified through media reports and by show creator Kurt Sutter. CCH Pounder (DA Tyne Patterson) and Kim Dickens (Colette Jane) will appear in the final season but only in a limited capacity, two to four episodes each.
Drea de Matteo (Wendy Case) was promoted to a series regular, while Jimmy Smits (Nero Padilla) and Peter Weller (Charles Barosky) are among the regulars returning along with others such as Katey Sagal (Gemma Morrow) and Charlie Hunnam (Jax Teller).
Meanwhile, filming started on the final season this week, Sutter told fans via Twitter.
Season 7 is slated to premiere in September 2014.
