What a good/weird news day for Sons of Anarchy fans!
After it was announced earlier that Marilyn Manson will be joining the cast of the FX drama for its final season, another new cast member has been added as well. Annabeth Gish, who currently stars on FX's critically acclaimed The Bridge, will play the new sheriff in town, E! News confirms.
Gish will take on the role of Althea Jarry, who is tasked with solving the murders of the former sheriff and Tara Knowles (Maggie Siff).
Jarry comes to Charming with plenty of experience in Stockton's Organized Crime Unit. She realizes she'll have to work with SAMCRO, but that doesn't mean she's a total pushover. This does not sound like good news for the murderous Gemma, who may not get away with her barbecue fork-stabbing after all.
Gish is also known for her roles on The West Wing, Brotherhood, and Pretty Little Liars, and will continue to recur on The Bridge when it returns for a second season in July.
And for those of you who may have missed SOA's other exciting news, Manson will join next season as Ron Tully, a white supremacist prison shot-caller who Jax (Charlie Hunnam) uses to expand his power base. And in perhaps even cooler news: Manson actually asked to be a part of the show because he and, more importantly, his dad are big fans of the show!
Sons of Anarchy's final season is set to premiere sometime this fall.
