Marilyn Manson channels his inner assassin in the new film Let Me Make You a Martyr. The independent film debuts July 22 at Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal, and in it he plays a hitman.
Rolling Stone debuted a clip from the film, which finds Manson standing on one side of the door and delivering a crackling, understated speech to his opponent who paces the room like a caged animal.
Manson previously acted in the FX series Sons of Anarchy, an opportunity that opened the doors to the film. “Mark [Boone Junior] brought me into the project,” Manson said. “We were friends from Sons of Anarchy. He’s sort of my unwanted mentor. He tells me what to do. He’s always encouraged me, but he’s very bossy about it. He says things like, ‘You gotta do this, motherfucker. You’ll like this.'”
It ended up being the biggest role Manson had undertaken. His hitman character ended up being on half the pages, he explained.
