I’m willing to bet Marilyn Manson regrets writing the song ‘Get Your Gun’ after his experience on the set of Universal and Ghost House Pictures’ Rise, which also stars Lucy Liu, Cathy Black, Giselle Fernandez, Veronica Gomez, Michael Chiklis, Carla Gugino and Cameron Richardson. Inside you can read about his scene with star Michael Chiklis (The Thing in Fantastic Four) and how it tramatized him. Rise is a supernatural thriller in which a reporter (Liu) wakes up in a morgue to discover she is no longer among the living. She vows revenge against the cult responsible for putting her there and hunts them down one by one…
Marilyn Manson tells MTV:
“I hadn’t really known too much about [Chiklis] before [the scene], other than he seemed like a real cop and he’s really aggressive,” Manson said, of the actor who, for a time, played television’s affable “Commish.” “In the scene, I’m a bartender who sort of sells out the character Lucy Liu is playing to him; he believes she was involved with the murder. And so he starts to rough her up a little bit, and he pulls out a gun and I say, ‘Hold on a minute,’ and then he points the gun at me.”
The scene was shot over and over again — “I believe it was to traumatize me emotionally,” the rocker said — and afterward, several members of the cast could tell Manson was shaken a bit by the whole ordeal.
“Everyone kept coming up to me on the set and saying, ‘Look! Here’s the gun. It’s not loaded. Don’t worry,’ ” Manson recalled. But it wasn’t the gun that got to him. “I said, ‘Listen. I’m not concerned about the gun — that guy [Chiklis] could sever my spine with a soft penis.’ He’s really intimidating and like so intense. I was scared straight.”
Working with Chiklis hasn’t turned Manson off to the whole Hollywood scene, though. Manson changed management last month, and he’s now being represented by the same dude who manages Nicolas Cage. Plus, “Rise” is one of several projects he has on the horizon — some finished, and others in various stages of completion.
