Lady Gaga Joins Machete Kills

To describe the casting for Robert Rodriguez’s Machete Kills as “quirky” would be a bit of an understatement. After all, this is a film that has Charlie Sheen as the president of the United States and Mel Gibson as a villainous arms dealer. But Rodriguez isn’t finished yet.

Barely a month after the filmmaker announced Sheen’s addition with a set photo, the filmmaker has taken to Twitter again to reveal the involvement of Lady Gaga — by releasing a character poster of the singer as La Chameleon. “I just finished working with @LadyGaga on @MacheteKills , she kicked SO MUCH ASS!” Rodriguez tweeted. “Holy Smokes. Blown away!”

The second in a proposed trilogy featuring the character played by Danny Trejo, Machete Kills finds the hero recruited by the U.S. government to stop an arms dealer from launching a deadly missile. The film, which opens sometime next year, also stars Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba, Demián Bichir, Amber Heard, Sofia Vergara and Zoe Saldana.

    Did Rodriguez take this cast right out of my dreams or what?
    I am so excited! On top of Sheen and Gaga, a Dish coworker said that the little
    girl from “Spy Kids” is going to be in the movie; if that is true, then this “Machete”
    and “Spy Kids” combo is going to be awesome! Now I can’t help but want to rent
    all these movies! I’m positive that they are all available from the
    Blockbuster@Home that I get through my Dish account, since that service has
    even the most random titles among the many movies available. I just want this
    sequel to be in theaters already!
