Anthony to play Charles Manson on new Duchovny series

“Game of Thrones” actor Gethin Anthony will likely spend some time getting cosy with Sharon Tate-types in the future.

According to Variety, Anthony has been cast as Charles Manson in the NBC drama “Aquarius” starring David Duchovny.

Duchovny’s post-“Californication” gig is a 13-episoder about a cop who goes undercover to track Manson. It’s been described as somewhat of an ‘early years’ episode in the life and crimes of Manson.

Grey Damon (“Twisted”) has also snared a role on the series.
