Marilyn Manson Joins AMERICAN GODS Season 3

Marilyn Manson Joins AMERICAN GODS Season 3
Rocker Marilyn Manson has joined the third season of Starz's "American Gods". The series, which is based on Neil Gaiman's novel of the same name, is once again replacing showrunners, and Charles "Chic" Eglee will be spearheading the new season.

Manson will play Johan Wengren, the lead singer of Blood Death, a Viking death metal band that is a source of power for Ian McShane's Mr. Wednesday (also known as the Old God Odin). Wengren is an entirely new character, not featured in Gaiman's book.

Here's what Eglee had to say about Manson's role:
"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 3 of American Gods. 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."

Originally developed by Michael Green and Bryan Fuller, the series also stars Ricky Whittle, Orlando Jones, Emily Browning, Pablo Schrieber, Kahyun Kim and Dean Winters. Green and Fuller were at one point replaced by Jesse Alexander, who in turn was replaced by Eglee.

Manson can also be seen in a guest-starring role on HBO's "The New Pope".
