Marilyn Manson is set to appear as Peter Pan's shadow in a new adaptation of the J. M. Barrie book, NME reports. Shock rocker will be voicing the character in an episode of U.S fairy tale drama series "Once Upon a Time." Speaking about Manson’s involvement in the project, executive producers Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz had the following to say: "We've always been enormous fans of Marilyn Manson. We wanted to cast someone with the vocal ability to make our skin crawl." Manson’s version of the character will reportedly be darker than in previous incarnations, displaying a penchant for kidnapping and soul stealing. The episode will be the eighth in "Once Upon a Time"'s third season, and is set to air on ABC in mid-November. Manson is no stranger to acting, having made his debut in David Lynch's 1997 film "Lost Highway." Do you think Manson will be good in the role, or should the goth-rocker stick to music? Let us know in the comments.

    Sounds weird. therefore its gonna be interesting
    Because these days he's just a shadow of himself, so he must be used to talking as one by now.
    Anybody know or where it's on? That might've been something to include in the article.
    I can imagine this being really cool. I'm not a big fan of Mansons music, but he's made a character of himself for sure, and i can imagine it working really well in a show like this.
    ZOSO <(")
    This is gonna be bad-ass. I've wanted to see him go into tv/ movies for a long time.
