Actress/singer Taryn Manning was perfect as the band manager in The Perfect Age of Rock and Roll because of her rocker background, but the role of Manson follower Sadie Atkins in the upcoming Manson Girls could be her Oscar winning performance.
'If I want to win an Oscar which is my intention, I want the part that will stand out and that's Sadie Atkins. I feel like I should have been nominated for Hustle & Flow to be honest and a lot of people feel that way but that's fine and it wasn't my time. I'm one part away from winning an Oscar if it's the right part and that could be playing Sadie Atkins. There are people who don't like her and what she really did in real life and I don't know if I want to sign up for that potential abuse that could come my way from people that are horrified from the murders she committed of innocent people. It's a good problem to have!'
