‘Sons of Anarchy’ Casts Another Rocker — a Golden Globe Nominee Who Has Been a Polarizing Figure in Music

Jul 9, 2014  •  Post A Comment

FX’s “Sons of Anarchy,” which had a punk rocker in a major role early in its run, will do it again in the show's seventh season. EW.com’s Inside TV reports that the biker drama is bringing aboard singer and actress Courtney Love.

The casting of Marilyn Manson for the seventh season was announced back in May, and the series had former punk rocker and renaissance man Henry Rollins in a key role as a white supremacist all the way back in season two.

Love will have a multi-episode arc as the preschool teacher for Jax’s son Abel. Her character’s interest in Abel will irk the boy's biological mother, played by former "Sopranos" star Drea de Matteo, the piece adds.

FX said Love will make her first appearance in the upcoming seventh season’s fourth episode. The season, the last for the series, is set to launch in September.

Love, the widow of Kurt Cobain, has been a polarizing figure in music but her acting career has been largely well-received. She received a Golden Globe nomination for “The People vs. Larry Flynt” (1996) and starred opposite Jim Carrey in the Andy Kaufman biopic "Man on the Moon" (1999).
