One thing that Kurt Sutter loves to do on his popular television show “Sons of Anarchy” is bring in major guest stars. He has had a large number of famous people pop on the show in roles that no one would expect from them. The final season is no different, as Sutter has signed Marilyn Manson to appear in a recurring role in the seventh season.
With the popular shock rock star coming to “Sons of Anarchy,” here is a look at some other big name celebrities who stopped by the show.
Horror author Stephen King has never hidden his love for “Sons of Anarchy.” As a matter of fact, a short novella King wrote with his son Joe Hill called “Throttle” was a full homage to the hit biker TV series. It had to be a dream-come-true for the horror mastermind to get a role on the show. He only had a short time on the episode he appeared in, but he appeared as Bachman, a cleaner called in to dispose of a body. The name is great, as Stephen King used the pseudonym Richard Bachman for a number of novels when he was younger.
Ashley Tisdale made her name as a snobby rich girl in the “High School Musical” Disney series. She was less than a Disney princess in her appearances on “Sons of Anarchy,” where she played prostitute Emma Jean in Season 5 of the show.
For anyone who has followed Danny Trejo’s career, it should come as no surprise that he would fit in so well on “Sons of Anarchy.” On the show, he played Romeo Parada, a former commando who becomes a high ranking cartel member. It turned out over time that he was actually an undercover CIA agent.
Maybe one of the least likely actors to ever appear on “Sons of Anarchy” is David Hasselhoff. He is best known for his starring role in “Baywatch” and has become, over his career, a caricature of himself, something he seems to understand and flaunts. In the fourth season of the show, he appeared as Dondo, a retired porn star and current porn producer.
Joel McHale is best known as the host of “The Soup” as well as starring on the popular comedy series “Community.” He showed up in Season 5 of “Sons of Anarchy” as a con-man who sets his sights on Gemma. Anyone who has watched the show realizes how bad that decision was.
