Of Course Lady Gaga Is In 'Machete Kills'

Really, at this point you could tell us that our third grade teacher is in "Machete Kills" and we wouldn't bat an eye.

Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, aka pop diva Lady Gaga, is the latest addition to the cast of "Machete Kills," according to The Playlist.

The sequel to 2010's "Machete" sounds like writer-director Robert Rodriguez's most gonzo project to date as its acting ensemble is filled with such seemingly random (and some might even say "troubled") thespians as Mel Gibson and Charlie Sheen. It only makes sense that Rodriguez would invite Lady Gaga to bring even more endearing weirdness to the party.

Rodriguez certainly isn't having new star stretch too far for her acting debut, though. Gaga will be playing a character called La Chameleon, a femme fatale type who, like the woman playing her, has quite the extensive and, shall we say, imaginative wardrobe.

Rodriguez annonced Lady Gaga's involvement via Twitter today — and, in true RR style, he's already wrapped her scenes. Fast and furious is the name of the game at Troublemaker Studios.

Lady Gaga joins an ensemble that includes Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Demian Bichir, Amber Heard, Sofia Vergara, Zoe Saldana, Jessica Alba and a very grown-up Alexa Vega, who previously played little Carmen Cortez in the "Spy Kids" movies. "Machete Kills" will hit theaters sometime in 2013.
