Once Upon a Time in Wonderland is to rock up with the arrival of Marilyn Manson in the cast.
ABC Television has revealed via Rolling Stone Magazine that the rock star Manson will join the show from next month.
The creepy world of Neverland will become even more spooky as Marilyn Manson provides the voice to a character called Shadow. The magazine notes executive producers Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz are ‘huge fans’ of the singer.
The storyline currently follows the Fairytale Avengers searching Neverland for a missing pal while they battle evil, including a far from friendly Peter Pan.
We’ve always been enormous fans of Marilyn Manson [and] we wanted to cast someone with the vocal ability to make our skin crawl. – Eddy Kitsis
