Sometimes, casting just makes perfect sense.
Devilish rock star Marilyn Manson will have a special guest role in the upcoming third season of WGN AMerica’s supernatural drama Salem.
Manson will be doing his best Sweeney Todd by playing a barber and surgeoun named Thomas Dinley, who is versed in both giving haircuts as well as applying leeches and performing rudimentary surgeries.
This is actually not Manson’s first collaboration with the series — he helped create Salem‘s theme song “Cupid Carries a Gun” along with composer Tyler Bates.
Season 3 of Salem began production Thursday, and will air beginning in April.
