Shirley Manson to Star in Terminator TV Show

May 29, 2008

If you haven’t already heard, Shirley Manson, lead singer of one of my favorite bands, Garbage, will be joining the cast of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles this coming fall, according to a Reuters report published May 28, 2008. She’ll be playing Catherine Weaver, CEO of Cyberdyne, the tech company that eventually develops Skynet, the artificial intelligence supercomputing system that becomes “self-aware” and attempts to destroy humanity. No word on what this means with regard to future Garbage releases, though it does seem to scuttle plans for recording a new album sometime this year, as reported last July in Billboard magazine. As of this writing, there’s no announcement at, their official site. Cheers, however, to Shirley Manson. Now I’ll have to start watching that show on a regular basis.
