Rocker Drops Iconic Makeup for Role on Eastbound and Down
Do you recognize the man above? His real name is Brian Hugh Warner, but chances are you know him by his stage name, Marilyn Manson. Yes, that is a picture of Manson without his iconic makeup plastered on. He recently stopped by the set of Eastbound and Down, the hit HBO comedy starring Danny McBride which is entering its final season, to shoot a small role for the series which Manson claims he is a huge fan of.
He’s even attended a couple of the season launch parties and has reportedly been emailing McBride about eventually landing a role on the show for years now.
McBride described his relationship with Manson during a MTV interview back in 2010, saying, “I get weird emails from Marilyn Manson now. He sends me weird emails in the middle of the night of what he’s watching on TV, and you can hear him giggling in the background. One time he literally sent me a Peanuts special I guess he was watching, sometimes it’s Eastbound, infomercials, anything.”
While it is confirmed that Manson will be on the show there’s no word yet on what his role will be or which episode he will appear on. You can check out the TMZ video below which was the first to capture Manson on set without his make-up on.
