Marilyn Manson to play Viking death metal vocalist in 'American Gods' TV series.
After roles in shows such as Son's of Anarchy and Salem, Marilyn Manson has been confirmed to join season three of TV series American Gods. Manson will play the lead singer of a Viking death-metal band whose music is the source of power for the Old God Odin himself. This should prove to be an incredibly good avenue for Manson's thespian talents.
"As a long-time admirer of his estimable talent as an author, artist, musician and actor, it is dope indeed to be working with Mr. Manson in Season three of American Gods," show runner Chic Eglee enthused to Deadline. "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."
