Rocker Marilyn Manson is expanding his acting resume, following up his performance in “Eastbound & Down” with a role in FX’s “Sons of Anarchy.”

FX announced that the rock star will play Ron Tully, described as a “white supremacist prison shot-caller who Jax uses to expand his power base.” (Jax is played by Charlie Hunnam)

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