Charlie Sheen has won himself a role in Robert Rodriguez’s Machete Kills, a sequel to the director’s 2010 grind-house actioner Machete. The Emmy-nominated-actor-turned-tabloid-star will play the President of the United States.
I just cast Charlie Sheen in #machetekills as the President of the United States! Who better?
Sheen joins fantastically gonzo cast that includes Mel Gibson, Sofia Vergara, Zoe Saldana, Amber Heard, Demian Bechir, Edward James Olmos and returning players Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez and Danny Trejo as Machete.
Machete Kills follows Machete as he’s recruited by the U.S. government to bring down a billionaire arms dealer (Gibson) plotting global warfare with a high-tech space weapon. The film is currently shooting in Austin, Texas for a 2013 release.
