Singer-songwriter of the moment Ed Sheeran has joined creator Kurt Sutter’s blood-soaked FX drama “The Bastard Executioner” in a recurring role. He’ll play an ambitious, potentially lethal character who is being groomed by a high-ranking church elder. This isn’t the first time Sutter has used musicians on his shows. “Sons of Anarchy” cast both Marilyn Manson and Courtney Love in the final season of “Sons of Anarchy.” [The Hollywood Reporter]
