Score one for the casting director of the WGN America drama Salem.
Marilyn Manson will guest star in the forthcoming third season of the show, playing Thomas Dinley, a character who doubles as a barber and a surgeon. This is 17th century New England, after all.
A press release describes Dinley as “a barber and surgeon who is the go-to man in Salem, from a shave and a haircut to being leeched, bled, sliced open or sewn up.” A (potentially) less murderous Sweeney Todd? Manson should do just fine.
Production on the new season of the Salem witch trial-inspired show began yesterday (Jan. 21) in Shreveport, La.
This isn’t the first time Manson has provided his talents to Salem. Previously, he collaborated with composer Tyler Bates to craft the show’s theme song. We leave you with “Cupid Carries a Gun”:
