Marilyn Manson Guest Appearance In ‘Californication’

Written by Marc Zanotti on June 26, 2012

The controversial entity known as Marilyn Manson (real name Brian Warner) is set to make a guest appearance in season 6 of the hit Showtime program Californication. According to Loud Wire, Manson will play himself and have an “unforgettable meeting” with the show’s protagonist Hank Moody, played by David Duchovny.

This is far from the first time Manson has appeared on television or film: the solo artist has featured in the likes of David Lynch’s Lost Highway and Michael Moore’s 2002 documentary Bowling for Columbine. During an exclusive interview with Loud Wire in April 2012, Manson spoke of how his appearance in Moore’s doco helped change public perception.

“I don’t necessarily like the movie…but I do agree with you that ‘Bowling for Columbine,’ that one thing that I said, did create a window — a catalyst that opened up a whole new way of people looking at me. After that I had ‘The Golden Age of Grotesque’ and I had my ability and my confidence to say — and I think it was one of my most creative periods until now — [that] instead of being destroyed by all of it, it made me stronger”, Manson said.

Manson again touched on the topic of Columbine when explaining his latest record Born Villain. When recently speaking with NME, Manson said his inspiration for Born Villain stretched back to the tragedy of the Columbine Massacre of 1999 and the blame that he was accredited with in the aftermath.

“‘Born Villain’ is the perfect title for this record because it’s who I am. It’s a question of nature or nurture, are people raised to be villains or vilified like I have become?”, Manson said.

“When it comes to things like Columbine, it would have been different if they [the shooters] had actually liked my music, but I think that I have had more blame accredited to me then any person in the history of music”, he said.
