Watch out Jax Teller, Courtney Love is coming to Charming.

It was confirmed today that the Hole frontwoman will be making an appearance on Sons of Anarchy this season, the show’s seventh and final season.

Love will play Ms. Harrison, the preschool teacher of Jax’s eldest son, Abel. According to reports, it’s a pivotal role and her debut is set to happen during the fourth episode of the season.

While this will be Love’s first dramatic TV role, it isn’t the frontwoman’s first acting gig. In 1997, she was nominated for a Golden Globe for her work in The People vs. Larry Flynt and even starred opposite Jim Carrey in 1999’s Man on the Moon.

Love won’t be the only rocking co-star to be appearing during FX’s  hit show’s swan song season. A couple of months ago, it was revealed that shock rocker, Marilyn Manson will also be set to appear on the show.

Manson, who is predominately known for his extreme performances and persona, will be playing Ron Tully, a white supremacist prison shot-caller who Jax uses to expand his power base.

While no specific dates have been given as to when either episodes are set to air, we can assume that it will be interesting to see these musicians take on role not quite like the ones they tend to portray on a stage.

Marilyn Manson to Join ‘Sons of Anarchy’

Marilyn Manson has added several television and film credits to his biography and now, the shock rocker has booked a bigger role than those on Eastbound & Down and the few film roles he has had.

It has been confirmed that Manson will have a recurring role on the upcoming season of FX’s hit biker drama, Sons of Anarchy. The rocker will play a white supremacist named Ron Tully during the seventh season of the series which will begin airing new episodes in September.

What some may have not known, more maybe did, Manson whose real name is Brian Warner, was determined to get onto the series in order to make his father, Hugh, proud.

“Sons has been such a big part of my life, as well as my father’s” Manson said in a press release. “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.”

The news comes two weeks after Manson’s mother, Barbara passed away at the age of 68 after battling dementia. In a Facebook post following her passing, he wrote: “I hope I see you again someday. But not now, because I have more things I promised I would do. I’ll make you proud and satisfied that you know you made the son you wanted.”

And it seems he is keeping to his word. Sons of Anarchy star Katey Segal, Ron Pearlman and Charlie Hunnman and has been a mainstay on FX’s line up, but sadly will call it a day at the end of this season, though according to some of the crew on the series, creator Kurt Sutter had pitched a prequel type series set in the 1960s and FX was looking into it.
