According to a rep for the show, Michele will play Gertie, an empathetic truck stop waitress and single mother, who connects with Gemma during a difficult time. Michele broke the news on Twitter Monday:
Michele joins previously announced Season 7 guest stars Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson. This isn't the first time creator Kurt Sutter has turned a singing starlet into something darker on his show: High School Musical alum Ashley Tisdale guest-starred on Season 5.
"I like to do some casting that's a little bit outside the box," Sutter said recently during the show's Television Critics Association panel. "You know, from Stephen King to David Hasselhoff — we try to do stuff that's fun."
Sons of Anarchy returns to FX on Tuesday, Sept. 9 at 10/9c. Michele's episode will air on October 14. What do you think of her casting?
