californication-casting-news-marilyn-manson-showtimeTalk about an interesting move by the show! In casting news from Californication, Marilyn Manson is joining season six of Showtime´s longtime running comedy.

Metal rock star Marilyn Manson will guest star on one episode of the new season of CALIFORNICATION playing himself. The genre-defying Grammy® Award-nominated musician and Hank (series star and executive producer David Duchovny) have an unforgettable meeting at Atticus Fetch’s (guest star Tim Minchin) house in the seventh episode. Production on the sixth season’s 12 episodes began last month with an early 2013 premiere on SHOWTIME.

The iconic Manson is a three-time Grammy nominee and MTV Video Music Award winner. His eight studio albums have sold more than 50 million records worldwide with three albums being certified platinum and three certified gold in the U.S. His most recent disc, Born Villain, was released earlier this year. Manson has also ventured into acting, appearing in films such as Lost Highway, Party Monster and Rise: Blood Hunter. He has also scored and composed songs for the film Resident Evil.
