Want to see Marilyn Manson in Quentin Dupieux's Wrong Cops? Well, you can. The film is a 90-minute comedy about corrupt cops that debuted at Cannes. Manson plays a bit of a, um, slow kid, taunted and bullied by the officer who asks if he wants to see his dick. He is accused of being a hooker, too, all the while trying to listen to music. It's darkly funny, in a creepy, cultish way. But don't expect an Academy Award. [Antiquiet]

Gary Cherone and Nuno Bettencourt of Extreme will perform the National Anthem at the Boston Red Sox Game at Fenway Park this Saturday, May 26. Additionally, Bettencourt will bring his self-proclaimed No. 1 fan Darren Parker, who is suffering from an inoperable brain tumor and has been left unable to work as his medical costs mount, on the field while they perform. Parker will also be able to watch the soundcheck and batting practice. All this came about because Bettencourt cannot attend a June 23 fundraiser for Parker at Sleep's Bar + Grill in Bluffs, Illinois since he will be on the road with Rihanna in London at that time.
