Sons of Anarchy gets snubbed at the Emmys every year, but even if the seventh and final season receives zero nominations for best series, acting, or writing, I hope someone creates a brand-new category called "weirdest casting" so SoA can finally take home an award. If I were given unlimited time, access to IMDB.com, and a case of 5-Hour Energy, I couldn't have possibly come up with the names associated with the show lately, which have included Courtney Love (what?), Marilyn Manson (whaaaaaaat?), and now Lea Michele (okay, they're messing with us, right?).
Lea Michele seems like a particularly eyebrow-raising choice, and it's not clear why the news didn't go public at Comic-Con last week, but Michele herself tweeted the announcement yesterday afternoon. I'm not sure what's more surprising, the character she'll be playing -- or the way she described the show.
