Courtney Love will soon be playing with some doll eyes, doll mouth, doll legs — as a preschool teacher on “Sons of Anarchy!”
The legendary grunge rocker will join FX’s dark, gritty biker drama for its seventh and final season, reports TVLine. She’ll be playing Jax’s (Charlie Hunnam) son Abel’s preschool teacher, Ms. Harrison, for a “pivotal” multi-episode arc, which will kick off during episode four.
Now, this all sounds very love-ly, but in case you’ve missed the last couple of seasons of “Anarchy” — spoilers ahead — Ms. Harrison is walking right smack into a very terrible situation. Abel’s stepmother was recently murdered by his grandmother, Gemma (Katey Sagal), leaving Jax and his newly sober ex (and Abel’s mother) Wendy in very precarious situations. Gemma, Jax, and Wendy have all already proven that they’ll do anything — violence included — to protect Abel, so let’s hope Ms. Harrison doesn’t need to be the girl with the most cake, and is content with sharing.
“Sons” will mark Love’s first appearance on a television drama, but she earned a Golden Globe nom for 1996′s “The People vs. Larry Flynt,” so she should be perfectly capable of handling the show’s heavy material. The real question is — can she handle Gemma?
