Because stunt-casting is a helluva way to promote your movie — seriously, Mel Gibson is in this thing. MEL GIBSON. — Lady Gaga has been added to the cast of Machete Kills, where she will presumably be forced to bang Danny Trejo or be the evil person who gets killed. There is no middle ground. From Coming Soon:
Following Machete Kills photos of Alexa Vega’s decidedly more adult look earlier today, writer/director Robert Rodriguez has revealed a surprise addition to the sequel’s cast: Lady Gaga will be playing a character called La Chameleón. “I just finished working with @LadyGaga on @MacheteKills,” Rodriguez tweeted, “she kicked SO MUCH ASS! Holy Smokes. Blown away!”
Judging by the picture, Gaga will essentially be playing herself, only with a gun. Oh, wait, actually Gaga has wore guns in the past, so I was right the first time. She’ll be playing herself. What a stretch.
