I Just Can't Get Enough

Jac's roundup of pop culture news and Internet findings

FX biker drama Sons of Anarchy will embark in its final ride this fall, after a game-changing penultimate season. The show has featured a few guest stars from the music world, including Henry Rollins and Dave Navarro. Next on that list is a surprising name — Marilyn Manson. Manson will play a recurring role in the final season: Ron Tully, a white supremacist behind bars who could prove to be a useful player for Jax. Hello, nightmares! It turns out Manson is far from the heartless characters he portrays on stage or screen — he reportedly picked up the role as a tribute to his dad, who is a big fan of the show. “Sons has been such a big part of my life, as well as my father’s,” he told Variety. “So I was determined to make him proud by being involved in what will probably be remembered as the most amazing piece of television cinema. After all, the very heart of SOA is about that relationship.” Aww, Marilyn! Marilyn Manson is not, for the record, Paul from The Wonder Years. We now know this as fact because the cast of the family classic recently reunited to promote a Wonder Years DVD set coming soon. We all know Winnie (Danica McKellar) went on to become a super hot mega genius and Kevin (Fred Savage) is still involved with show business (he's been a director and producer on Always Sunny and lots of other comedies), but what ever happened to Paul? As you can see, grown-up Paul (Josh Saviano) looks nothing like Manson today. But I guess we never have seen them in the same place at the same time… While we’re taking a walk down memory lane, O-Town is the latest early-‘00s boy band to reunite, though at least 15 women will be upset to discover Ashley Parker Angel, “The Cute One,” is no longer a part of the band. If you recall, the band was formed as part of 2000's Making the Band, a show that acknowledged the inauthentic, assembly-line nature of manufacturing boy bands while also...manufacturing a boy band. O-Town was assembled by Lou Pearlman, the manager behind the Backstreet Boys, *NSync, LFO, Aaron Carter and other Pop acts of the 1990s and early 2000s.Fun Fact: Pearlman was sued by every band/performer he worked with except one, and is now serving a 25-year sentence for charges of conspiracy, money laundering and making false statements during a bankruptcy proceeding. Great job! Tennis star Serena Williams “crashed” a wedding last week, because I guess being asked to take a photo with a bride and groom constitutes wedding crashing. It would be a fun memory to run into a celeb on your big day, but I don’t know if I’d really want my new spouse to get an eyeful of this right after committing eternally to me. Oh well, you know what they say: If you choose to get married on a public beach, you just might get crashed by a bangin' pro tennis player in animal print. (Also: Are leotards the new swimsuits?) The Bottle Boys are a Danish performance group that use bottles in various ways to play songs. Their latest cover, of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean,” is going viral. Check it out. The crew has competed on Britain’s Got Talent using beer bottles, water jugs and other containers to recreate popular songs. Two badass babes have signed on to the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII. Lupita N’yongo — Academy Award-winning actress from 12 Years a Slave and People’s “Most Beautiful” person of the year — and Gwendoline Christie — better known as Brienne of Tarth from Game of Thrones — are both slated to star in the latest Star Wars chapter, along with 600 other amazing actors. Also in movie news: From Edward to Indy? Robert Pattinson will likely take the role of Indiana Jokes for the next reboot. Now, here’s Chance The Rapper performing the theme song to my favorite educational cartoon, Arthur, at Sasquatch! Music Festival:(Thanks for the tip, Brooke!)
