Marilyn Mason will play  white supremacist on FX’s ‘Sons of Anarchy’. The character’s name is Ron Tully, a prison shot-caller who Jax uses to expand his power base.

Marilyn Manson recently commented on joining the cast and crew of ‘Sons of Anarchy’

“Sons has been such a big part of my life, as well as my father’s,” said Manson. “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.”

The role may just work out perfectly for Marilyn Manson. He was once accused of being a white supremacist after he was found to have a bunch of Nazi paraphernalia and human skin masks in his home. In 2007, Marilyn Manson was accused of wasting his band’s money on a child’s skeleton, masks made of human skin, and Nazi memorabilia.

Keyboardist Stephen “Pogo” Bier filed a breach of contract lawsuit in August in which he accused Manson of taking cash belonging to the rest of the band to pay for the “sick and disturbing” purchases.

As well as the skeleton and masks, Manson is said to have bought a range of stuffed animals, including a grizzly bear and two baboons.

He is also accused of using band funds to pay for a collection of Nazi memorabilia.

Marilyn Manson, real name Brian Hugh Warner is known for his controversial stage personality which was created by mixing the actress Marilyn Monroe and Manson Family leader Charles Manson.

He is best known for his 1996 album Antichrist Superstar and 1998’s Mechanical Animals, which earned him a reputation for creating a negative influence on young people.

Manson made his film debut in 1997 in David Lynch’s Lost Highway. Since then he has had several cameos including Party Monster, Jawbreaker, Eastbound & Down, and ABC’s Once Upon a Time. 

Marilyn Manson was in works for his directorial debut, Phantasmagoria: The visions of Lewis CarrollThe movie was to star Marilyn Manson as Lewis Carroll, the author of Alice Adventures in Wonderland. But, production was put on indefinite hold after disturbing clips from the movie hit the Internet and viewers were shocked. The response was so bad that sources close to the movie said that “it’s unlikely that the movie will likely ever see the light of day”
