Marilyn Manson has revealed that he’s been cast in the upcoming limited series based on Stephen King‘s classic 1978 novel The Stand. Speaking with Revolver, Manson did not indicate which character he’d be playing, but added that he and Shooter Jennings have recorded a new version of the Doors song “The End” for the project.

The Stand, which was previously adapted as an ABC miniseries in 1994, was announced earlier this year by CBS All Access.
