BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. -- Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson have roles on the upcoming final season of Sons of Anarchy.
The musicians join such previous guest stars as Stephen King and David Hasselhoff as unusual casting choices in the motorcycle club drama on FX.
"We try to have some things that are fun," creator and executive producer Kurt Sutter told the summer TV critics' meeting on Monday.
Love plays a teacher, and Sutter, a self-professed "huge" Nirvana fan, said, "I thought, who better than Courtney Love?"
Malcolm-Jamal Warner of The Cosby Show also has a role in the seventh and concluding season that debuts on Sept. 9.
In last season's finale, Katey Sagal's character used a fork to fatally stab the girlfriend of Charlie Hunnam's character. Sutter said fans now come up to Sagal, his real-life wife, with forks they want autographed.
"The absurdity has crossed the line in some respect," Sutter said.
