Marilyn Manson is heading back to the small screen. The rocker, who previously granted usage of his song “Cupid Carries a Gun” to be the theme of the TV series Salem, will make a guest appearance on the show’s upcoming third season.

According to The Wrap, Manson will guest star on the WGN America series as Thomas Dinley, a barber and surgeon who is the go-to man in Salem for all things needing a blade. Whether it be a shave, a haircut, being sliced open or sewn up, Dinley is the jack of all trades.

Not only did Manson lend his song to the show, but he also has a tie to the show, working with Salem‘s composer Tyler Bates on music in the past. The two musicians worked together on the song “Cupid Carries a Gun” before it appeared during the show’s opening title sequence.

Manson has a long history of taking on acting roles. His most recent role was as a neo-Nazi prison gang leader on Sons of Anarchy. He also has appeared on Californication, Eastbound & Down and lent his voice to a character on ABC’s Once Upon a Time.
