Marilyn Manson, a name synonyms with intense, amazing musical talent (I’m a big fan), should also be recognized for his acting talent. He killed it in his role as Ron Tully in Sons of Anarchy. Now he’s killing again, as a hitman in his latest film project, a crime thriller, Let Me Make You A Martyr, which just premiered at Fantasia Film Festival and is already getting great reviews.
Manson was recruited by his fellow SOA actor and friend, Mark Boone who plays Manson’s partner-in-crime in Let Me Make You A Martyr, written and directed by Corey Asraf and John Swab.
Mark brought me onto the project. We were friends from Sons of Anarchy.” Manson says. “He’s sort of my unwanted mentor. He tells me what to do. He’s always encouraged me, but he’s also very bossy about it. He says things like “You gotta do this motherfucker. You’ll like this.” After reading the script and realizing the character’s intensity and the horror he delivers, Manson came on board.
Manson’s Sons of Anarchy co-stars Boone, Niko Nocotera and Michael Shamus Wiles, star alongside Sam Quartin (Aimy in a Cage), Michael Potts (The Wire), Slaine (Gone Baby Gone), William Lee Scott (Nine Dead), Gore Abrams (Hell House), and As The World Turns’ Jake Silbermann, among others.
Let Me Make You A Martyr premiered on July 22nd and will see a wide release later this year. In the mean time you can see Marilyn Manson in his new role on WGN’s witch series Salem, whose third season debuts the week of Halloween.
