Actress Courtney Love is set to appear in the 7th and final season of the FX biker gang drama Sons of Anarchy. Love will first appear in the fourth episode as Ms. Harrison, the pre-school teacher of main character Jax’s (Charlie Hunnam) eldest son Abel.
This will be the television drama debut for Love, who was nominated for a Golden Globe for her work on 1995’s The People vs. Larry Flynt. The Hole frontwoman’s character takes a special interest in Abel, which will likely cause conflict with Abel’s mother Wendy, played by Drea de Matteo.
Courtney Love has been in the news of late due to the 20th anniversary of former husband and Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain’s suicide in 1994, as well as for Nirvana’s recent induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Love has been somewhat of a polarizing character for legions of Nirvana fans, with some who believe she may have “Yoko’d” Cobain. A note in which Cobain bashes Love as a charlatan was revealed in April.

Here is Love’s 2014 single You Know My Name:
Performance artist Marilyn Manson has also signed on for Sons season 7, and will play a recurring role as a white supremacist. Commenting on his role, Manson said, “‘Sons’ has been such a big part of my life, as well as my father’s. 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. So, now all I need is a motorcycle.”
In related news, back in March, Love revealed that she had solved the mystery of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370. Using a satellite imagery map called Tomnod, the rocker was able to extrapolate the exact whereabouts of the missing jet, and posted her findings on Facebook:
“I’m no expert but up close this does look like a plane and an oil slick. Prayers go out to the families #MH370 and its [sic] like a mile away Pulau Perak, where they ‘last’ tracked it 5°39’08.5″N 98°50’38.0″E but what do I know?”
