In a significant news that augments "Sons of Anarchy" season 7 anticipation, Marilyn Manson is understood to have officially joined the cast of FX's hit series.
The 45-year-old metal singer said in an official statement that he reached out to creator Kurt Sutter.
"Sons has been such a big part of my life, as well as my father's. 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," Deadline quoted Manson's statement from FX's official press release.
Manson has come onboard as a white supremacist, confined behind bars. Jax Teller will use him to expand his power base, as per the reports. Manson's character will be called Ron Tully.
Sutter is said to be thrilled with Manson's entry to the show. Post Manson's statement, he immediately took to Twitter to welcome him.

Meanwhile, in a recent interview with Larry King, Sutter answered some of the questions posed by fans on Twitter and Facebook in regards to season 7. A major chunk of fans wanted to know whether Teller's journal would be released in the upcoming season.
"The idea initially was to make John Teller's manuscript a book, and I think I'm going to wait until I do the prequel because so much of that informs the prequel," he replied.
Sutter even suggested that the most challenging part about writing last season was the emotional bond he developed with the series.
"I don't think it'll be any harder in terms of story. At some point emotionally I think it will be difficult as I get close to the end."
"Sons of Anarchy" season 7 is set to premier in September 2014.
The cast of the show includes Charlie Hunnam, Katey Sagal, Mark Boone Junior, Tommy Flanagan and Kim Coates.
