Did you enjoy watching Marilyn Manson in “Sons of Anarchy”? If so, you probably want to check out the upcoming season of “American Gods” on Starz.

According to Deadline, Manson will play Johan Wengren, the lead singer of the Viking death metal band.

Showrunner Chic Eglee said of Marilyn Manson, “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.”

The show won’t air until 2020 and he’ll be in four episodes. You can also catch him on HBO’s “The New Pope.” Good thing my friend’s boyfriend still hasn’t changed his HBO GO password.
