SLIPKNOT percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan will make his acting debut in “The Devil’s Carnival”, the new project Darren Lynn Bousman is directing that is being seen as a companion piece of sorts to “Repo! The Genetic Opera”.
Commented Crahan: “I am very honored to have been asked to be a part of this project.
“I play a character called The Tamer. And let me tell you, there is a little Tamer in all of us.
“It’s always been a dream and a goal for me to try and act in something that is filmed besides music videos.
“I am very honored to have the opportunity to have worked with so many talented actors and people who are involved in making this production come to life.”
In addition to Crahan, the “The Devil’s Carnival” cast consists of “Repo! The Genetic Opera” co-creator Terrance Zdunich, as well as “Repo!” stars Alexa Vega, Ogre (from SKINNY PUPPY) and Paul Sorvino. Emilie Autumn and Sean Patrick Flanery have also joined previously announced Bill Moseley and Briana Evigan and Marc Senter.
