Michaels has booked a guest role on the show, where he will play a “post-apocalyptic version of himself.” He’ll also perform the Poison song “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” on the episode, which will air sometime in the back half of Season 2.
“Bret is truly a great guy,” series creator Eric Kripke says. “I’m a huge fan of his music, and I’m thrilled he’s appearing on ‘Revolution.'”
Since it’s concerned mostly with epic power struggles, “Revolution” hasn’t dealt much with what post-blackout culture is like. The Season 2 premiere featured some guys in a bar playing Rush’s “Tom Sawyer” on acoustic guitars, and we’ve seen things like iPads used as drink trays, but that’s about it.
