He also recalls the pride he felt when he was finally able to tell his father he had landed the prestigious role on the show.
Manson tells KROQ: “I knew what was going to happen. So I would only try to read my part. I thought the show is so much about that father-son relationship and I just wanted to do something to make my dad happy.
"I went to Ohio because my mother had died and I got the phone call that I was going to be on the show. I said, ‘Dad, guess what, I’m going to be on the show! Guess what, I’m going to play the head of the Aryan Brotherhood! Guess what, I get paid for it! Guess what, I’m in every scene, every episode that I know of!’”
This has to be a great feeling for Manson to be able to connect with his father after years of him performing and entertaining over ten years. Marilyn Manson was originally a music journalist before being a musician and wasn't until covering "Nine Inch Nails" and meeting Trent Reznor, which led to him producing the first 3 albums of Marilyn Manson's new band.
