‘Sons of Anarchy’ Season 7 Adds Courtney Love in “Pivotal” Role
Earlier today we caught a first look at ‘Sons of Anarchy”s seventh and final season in the form of a brand-new trailer teaser, but here’s a side of SAMCRO we never thought we’d see. The FX biker drama has added former ‘Hole’ frontwoman and the Kurt Cobain’s widow Courtney Love for a major season 7 arc, but who of the ‘Sons of Anarchy’ will she make over?
Courtesy of TVLine, Love will make her dramatic TV acting debut in the fourth episode of the final season as Ms. Harrison, strait-shooting preschool teacher to Jax’s son Abel Teller. According to the report, Love’s character takes “a special interest in Abel — which will likely spark an interesting reaction from the boy’s mother Wendy (newly-minted series regular Drea de Matteo).”
Elsewhere on ‘Sons of Anarchy’ season 7, we know that the premiere will pick up at most a few weeks removed from the events of season 6 finale “A Mother’s Work,” while series creator Kurt Sutter has confirmed the returns of Walton Goggins‘ Venus Van Dam, CCH Pounder’s DA Tyne Patterson, Peter Weller’s Charlie Barosky, and ‘Deadwood’ star Kim Dickens as Diosa madame Collette. Shock rocker Marilyn Manson will guest as an incarcerated white supremacist (likely contributing to the soundtrack as well), while ‘The Bridge‘ star Annabeth Gish will act as the new Charming sheriff. Additionally, series stars David Labrava and Niko Nicatera have been upped to series regular for the final year.
Well, what say you? Which is the weirder final season casting, Courtney Love or Marilyn Manson? Check out our first look at ‘Sons of Anarchy’ season 7 again in the teaser below, and tell us what you want to see when FX’s biker drama heads to its final Comic-Con panel on July 27!
