Marilyn Manson Was A Hot Sticky Mess On 'Talking Dead' Last Night

First of all, Marilyn Manson is EXACTLY who I want to see talking about The Walking Dead. No joke, Hardwick, this is good television. Anyway, Manson was on Talking Dead last night to discuss the episode “Isolation” and his appearance was as meandering and, uh, “delightful” as you would expect. First of all, he kept referring to Carol as “Activia.” Because she reminded him of “Activia” spokeswoman Jaimie Lee Curtis. He’s not wrong, folks. I move we call Carol “Activia” from now on.


Manson also “ships” Carol and Darryl. That’s right, folks. Marilyn Manson, he’s just like us. He went on to claim he always knew Shane was bad news because of his ears. “Then, you have Shane, who I like to call criminally eary, because his ear looks criminal. There’s an old study about the shape of people’s ears makes them criminal or not.”


But there were moments, non ear-related moments, where Manson was almost lucid. He tried to compare The Governor to Hiltler (who hasn’t?) and make a sophisticated observation on Rick’s failed attempt at Democracy. But he was quickly back on the crazy train observing that Carol likely killed who she killed because it was her time of the month. Yeah. “No, but I think the recklessness of it. She was just making decisions on her own emotions. She’s mad about all the things in her life. Maybe, she hasn’t gotten laid in awhile. She’s like menstruating. Who knows what’s going on?”

You can read a full transcription of the crazy here. Love Manson’s appearance or hate it, there’s one thing we can all agree on. For dealing with all that, Chris Hardwick deserves a hug. I mean it!

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Keith Elliot

    First Talking Dead I actually stopped watching. Waste of time when not show relevant or coherent. Isn't it more interesting to have guests on you wouldn't think would be superfans? Of course Manson is into zombies (creative booking AMC). But Aisha Tyler, Drew Carey, CM Punk, Sarah Silverman, Zachary Levi, Scott Ian? Not conventional/expected.

  • Time Present

    Eh, I wouldn't say he was stoned, unless it was really, really good. I've never disliked him but, geez, it turned in the the Talking Manson. He just could not keep his mouth shut. He made some good points, but he was constantly interrupting people and looked nervous and annoyed when he wasn't the one talking. I watched about half and then gave up.

  • MrSerious

    People really watch this sht? A show about a (lame) show they just watched?

  • schizopolis

    It's like one of your favorite sports teams just sucks this year. This season's Walking Dead has so far been disappointing. 0-3 and having a loopy Marilyn Manson on for Talking Dead is the perfect metaphor.

  • MrSerious

    Note to Noob: The entire series took a nosedive after Season One and after the budget cuts and after canning the Show Runner.

  • schizopolis

    I have to disagree. Darabont was a bit too uppity. Once he ripped off music from Sunshine, I didn't mind his exit. Then again, I'm replying to a House fanboy. That show was garbage after 10-11 episodes. The curmudgeon genius character got tired without real story-lines.

  • Randy Bobandy


  • He was entirely stoned right? I wasn't the only one who noticed that he was only semi-lucid?

  • One minute into the episode I was like, diss gonna be gud, and, holy shit this guy is high.

  • TheAggroCraig

    I wonder if he ever wakes up and just throws on an old t-shirt and PJ pants or something.

  • Guest

    No, never.

  • J4Sho

    Oh, thank God you saw it too. I thought I hallucinated that.

  • I DVR both Walking and Talking Dead so I can skip past commercials.

    5 minutes into Talking Dead, Manson's discombobulation frustrated me to the point that I fast forwarded to the sneak peak at the end of the show. He added nothing.

  • MrSerious

    How would you know? You ffwd through it. Seriously.

  • Because his semi-lucid antics were so frustrating, it wasn't worth sitting through the rest of it.

    If I take a bite of a turd sandwich, I don't need to eat the whole thing to know it's bad.

  • Wigamer

    That Brian--he's so dark and edgy. With his Activia and big ear jokes. In no way does he sound 44 years old.

  • MrSerious

    Old people can't be dark and edgy I guess.

  • Wigamer

    They can be, I just don't think he is. Or ever has been, really.

  • Is it just me, or does he look kind of like Fat Val Kilmer in that header picture?

  • Wigamer

    Val at least sort of always had a big head/broad face. Brian unfortunately has that weird look of a formerly narrow-faced person who's now fat.

  • koko temur

    Yep. Not as happy though.

  • seth

    I couldn't name a Marilyn Manson song, but he should be on every episode of Talking Dead.

  • mairimba

    When Manson shipped Daryl and Michonne by doing a scissoring hand gesture I spit laughed. And Jack Osbourne rolling his eyes every time Manson opened his mouth to speak and pointing at him like 'this guy.' It was all disturbing/fabulous.

  • Maguita NYC

    The Talking Dead was playing in the background yesterday while I was doing stuff. Not sure if I heard correctly, but was there a moment of questioning if those Walkers ever pooped?

    That was of course related to the Activia conversation, as in Walkers do not eat Activia...

  • mairimba

    I believe he also suggested that people should be having sex with the Walkers.

  • Maguita NYC

    Thank goodness I missed that part! He really is into the macabre, isn't he.

  • Ian Fay

    OK, that tweet last night from him now makes total sense.
