Last month we got our first casting news for CBS All Access’ upcoming Stephen King adaptation The Stand, with James Marsden (Westworld), Amber Heard (Aquaman), Whoopi Goldberg (Sister Act), Greg Kinnear (The Kennedys) and Henry Zaga (X-Men: The New Mutants) set to star in the TV series from Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars).
Well, it seems we can now add another name to the list, as shock rocker Marilyn Manson has revealed to Revolver that he has a role in the series:
“Shooter [Jennings} and I did a cover of “The End” by The Doors, for a new miniseries of The Stand by Stephen King, which I’m also going to be acting in.”
As it happens, this won’t be Manson’s first collaboration with Boone, as he has also recorded a cover of “Cry Little Sister” from The Lost Boys for Boone’s troubled X-Men project The New Mutants – assuming that movie ever sees the light of day, of course.
Manson was last seen on screen in WGA America’s supernatural series Salem, and recently signed on to star alongside Jude Law, John Malkovich and Sharon Stone in Paolo Sorrentino’s The Young Pope follow-up The New Pope.
