If you’ve been watching Once Upon a Time, you’ll know that this season has seen the introduction of Peter Pan and his evil shadow. That’s where Marilyn Manson comes in – he’ll be playing the voice of Pan’s shadow later this season. Don’t you feel like you’re living in a nightmare?

From The Hollywood Reporter:

In the eighth episode, expected to air mid-November, Manson will make his Once Upon a Time debut voicing the character of The Shadow, who has already been seen this season. (The Shadow first appeared at the end of season two.)

“We’ve always been enormous fans of Marilyn Manson,” creators/executive producers Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz told Rolling Stone, who first broke the news, in a joint statement. “We wanted to cast someone with the vocal ability to make our skin crawl.”

Ha! Marilyn Manson doesn’t really make my skin crawl anymore, but he certainly used to when I was 12 and I’d fall asleep with MTV on and wake up at like, midnight when Beavis and Butthead was on and they’d be playing one of his videos. The video for ‘The Beautiful People’ was CRAZY and used to terrify me. But come on, this is Marilyn Manson now. Nobody’s running from that.
