The macabre and sometimes shock rocker is heading to your television screen in the upcoming third season of Salem. Marilyn Manson (AKA Brian Warner) already is familiar with the show that resides on the WGN network. If you have seen the opening credits, that’s his song it uses: Cupid Carries a Gun.
The heavy metal singer will be playing Thomas Dinley. His character is the show’s town barber and surgeon. In other words. he can give you a shave and haircut or slice you up and then sew you up.
I think he is a perfect cast for this role. Manson is bizarre and creepy, and that will feed into this show and give it the morbid curiosity it needs. He was excellent as prison gang leader Ron Tully in Sons of Anarchy. and I don’t see him being anything less on this show.
Salem is currently filming in Shreveport, LA, and will be airing later on this year — no confirmed date as of yet.
