Machete Kills has added yet another famous celebrity to its growing list of cast with the announcement that pop diva Lady Gaga will be playing La Chameleon in the Robert Rodriguez sequel movie.
The casting was confirmed by Robert Rodriguez via Twitter, stating “I just finished working with @LadyGaga on @MacheteKills , she kicked SO MUCH ASS! Holy Smokes. Blown away!”
Lady Gaga’s character, La Chameleon, has been given her own character poster, in which she is shown sporting a basque/wolfskin combo while holding a smoking gun. It should be noted that Lady Gaga has a background in acting, graduating from stage school and being required to act in her music videos. She also has a brief guest appearance in a Sopranos episode.
Lady Gaga will be joining Danny Trejo, alongside Amber Heard, Jessica Alba, Zoe Saldana, Sofia Vergara, Mel Gibson, and Charlie Sheen in the highly eclectic cast list. There are no exact dates for Machete Kills’ opening yet, but it is scheduled for release in 2013.
