Welcome to X-Files News!
As announced by many outlets this afternoon, Annabeth Gish will be joining the seventh and final season of FX's groundbreaking hit, Sons of Anarchy.
From TV Line:
Gish’s character, Althea Jarry, will call on her years of experience in Stockton’s Organized Crime Unit to pursue the murderers of former Sheriff Eli Roosevelt and Tara Knowles (the latter of whom was butchered to death via meat fork by Katey Sagal’s Gemma). Jarry quickly realizes she’ll have to work with SAMCRO to keep the peace, even if that means playing by their rules. But she has a few of her own that might surprise the club.
The role is said to be "charming and edgy" and Annabeth is quite happy to add this character to her celebrated career. She will simultaneously reprise her role as Charlotte in FX's The Bridge's second season come July, "I'm incredibly thrilled to be a part of the FX family on two such substantial and provocative shows!" she said to us today.
Marilyn Manson is also confirmed for a regular role in Sons of Anarchy, the show comes back during the fall.

As part of NF awareness month, Doodle 4 NF is well underway on eBay. There are lots of individual doodles up for sale, and all proceeds will benefit The NF Network. Gillian's doodle is doing very well, and there are some awesome ones by other X-Files alumni, but the mother of all doodles is the Montreal Comiccon Banner.
The banner was donated by Montreal Comiccon, but has picked up lots of other doodles through its travels with Gillian. There are almost 27 square feet of doodles by more famous people than you could ever hope to meet at a single convention.
