Marilyn Manson.... yes THAT Marilyn Manson

...PLAYING A NATIVE AMERICAN HITMAN
http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/news/see-marilyn-manson-play-native-american-hit-man-in-movie-trailer-20150812?page=2
He wasn't cast for the role because of it, but he claims Sioux... LOL

"Manson's heritage is Sioux on his mother's side – 'her family was from the Appalachian Mountains, West Virginia' – but other than taking part in a Native American–run program akin to Boy Scouts, that side of his family was not heavy on his upbringing. 'They gave me one of those wooden, carved tom-tom drums and it was bound with animal hide and it was painted,' he says of his sole memory of the experience. 'I just remember I ended up stealing the drum and never going back.' He laughs."

You have got to be kidding me. They cast him not knowing his claims.
Another white dude for a "Native" role...
In 2015....

Let me know if anyone finds any proof of his claims and this can move to "Non-Frauds" but I seriously doubt that. It's here in Research because I had no idea where else to put it.

I mean, sure, Indins can be anywhere for any reason but c'mon... What are the odds of any Sioux person being in that part of the US far back enough so his/her descendants look no part Native, have no connection to being Native, and not have been known by the community that she/he left? This guy goes into the Bieber/FN status column.

According to Wikipedia, he was born in Canton, Ohio.  His real name is Brian Hugh Warner and his stage name is Marilyn Manson (from Marilyn Monroe and Charles Manson).

Quote
He is the only son of Barbara Warner (née Wyer) and Hugh Warner.[10] Manson is of German and English descent.

His ethnicity's been online for awhile, as has his mother's genealogy. No mention of it until the role. If he's ignorant enough to think the Boy Scouts was "practicing their heritage..."

Any ancestry would be very distant and they seem to be pulling an alleged tribe from the hat, one they heard from movies. It could be like most southern white families, that they have distant Black ancestry they wanted to cover up.

Marilyn Manson is pretty good at spinning yarns, you should check out the Celebrity Ghost Stories episode of him where he claimed to have found a fictitious book called the Necromonicon and summoned demons in an old farm house-which disappeared the next day when he looked for it.

Unfortunately the Wikipedia entry has been updated to include his claim, without making clear that it is an unsubstantiated claim.

Manson is of German, English, and Sioux descent.

We choose @marilynmanson to play a Native American character when we have so many amazing Native actors? Why?
