Shock rocker Marilyn Manson has cut a deal to provide the voice to animated character EDGAR in a new computer game.

The Beautiful People hitmaker will provide the vocals for the alien in upcoming release AREA-51 and Manson is already noticing similarities between Edgar and himself.

He enthuses, "The thing about Area-51 that was interesting to me was that I'd be portraying an alien who shares a lot of similar feelings that I do, such as a distaste for mankind in general. It's a game for people who don't necessarily trust the government, who don't trust everything they're told or taught in school.

"Edgar is only helping the player along out of spite or his own convenience. It's like a game to him. You don't really know if he's good or bad, he kind of represents both sides of the spectrum."
