Manson, known for making cameo appearances in popular TV shows which include the likes of “Californication”, “Eastbound & Down” and “Once Upon a Time”, said in a statement:

 “‘Sons’ has been such a big part of my life, as well as my father’s,”

He added speaking to Variety:

“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.”
