Shirley Manson, Terminator

Some cyborgs are only happy when it rains.

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles is bringing aboard Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson as a regular next season.

The Scottish singer will play the CEO of a cutting-edge high-tech company that may be a precursor to the humanity-hating Skynet...and possibly a target for Sarah Connor's merry band of terminator hunters. The casting was first sniffed out by the Hollywood Reporter.

The second season of the Fox sci-fi series will see the return of Lena Headey (Sarah Connor), Thomas Dekker (John Connor), Summer Glau (terminator Cameron), Richard T. Jones (FBI Special Agent James Ellison) and Brian Austin Green (Derek Reese).

Manson should be plenty busy in the coming months. Garbage has been working on a follow-up to 2005's Bleed Like Me that the band hopes to release later this year.
