Marilyn Manson will guest star in season six of the Showtime hit TV show “Californication”. The controversial rocker will appear as himself, and in the episode will have what is described as an “unforgettable meeting” with David Duchovny‘s character Hank Moody.
“Californication” is an American dramedy television series that centers on novelist Hank Moody, who moves to California and suffers from writer’s block, which complicates his relationships with his longtime girlfriend Karen (Natascha McElhone) and daughter Becca (Madeleine Martin). The show has been nominated for and has won several awards, including winning one Emmy Award (nominated for two others) and one Golden Globe Award (nominated for three others).
As previously reported, Marilyn Manson has the lead role in a short film called “Wrong Cops”, which premiered last month as part of the festivities at the Cannes Film Festival in France. The movie was directed by Quentin Dupieux, whose full-length 2011 feature “Rubber” was a surreal tale about an intelligent tire that murders people. His latest movie, “Wrong”, debuted last January at the Sundance Film Festival.
Manson, who recently performed with actor Johnny Depp at the Revolver Golden Gods awards in Los Angeles, told The Pulse Of Radio about his part in “Wrong Cops” and other upcoming projects, “I play a street hustler with braces on my teeth, which was an interesting, fun experience (laughs). I’m working on something with Johnny. Working on something with my friend Eli Roth also. And I’m basically just on a roll of having a good time at being bad and I just want to continue doing it.”
Manson has previously had roles in movies such as “Jawbreaker” — with then-fiancée Rose McGowan — “Party Monster” and “Lost Highway”.
Manson and Depp recently teamed up to record a new version of Carly Simon‘s classic song “You’re So Vain”. The track was included on Manson‘s upcoming album “Born Villain”, which came out on May 1.
