It might not fill the void left by Game of Thrones but it’s sure to be worth a watch: Marilyn Manson has been cast in the upcoming HBO series The New Pope.

The show itself is a sequel to The Young Pope from 2016 which starred Jude Law. While the new series is only loosely related to the original, fans can expect to see Law reprising his role, along with newcomers to the show, Sharon Stone and John Malkovich.

It’s uncertain how big a role Marilyn Manson will play in the show, but it’s certain to be just as bizarre as his other works.

Manson can be seen live this summer touring with Rob Zombie on their Twins of Evil tour.
