And the winning continues unabated.
Robert Rodriguez has a penchant for casting controversial tabloid celebs in his "Machete" series, be they Lindsay Lohan in the first movie or Mad Mel Gibson in "Machete Kills," but now the director has revealed via Twitter that none other than Charlie Sheen will play the most powerful man in the world. Very apropos.
"I just cast Charlie Sheen in #machetekills as the President of the United States! Who better? More soon..." Tweeted Rodriguez, indicating that he may have yet another ace (or aces) up his sleeve for casting his blood-soaked exploitation sequel.
Mayhaps Sheen wanted to follow in his papa Martin's "West Wing" footsteps, or it could just be that The Goddesses were demanding better accommodations. The White House should suffice.
Rodriguez has also uploaded several pics (via /Film) from the set featuring stars Danny Trejo and Jessica Alba in full-on badass mode along with an all-female mariachi band.
Sheen's never-ending supply of Tiger Blood has kept him going strong since his big media bonanza following CBS giving him the heave-ho from "Two and a Half Men." With a new FX series called "Anger Management" and "Moonrise Kingdom" writer Roman Coppola directing him in the pseudo autobiographical "A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III," we know who's going to be winning the most: audiences.
