Confirmed Machete Cast As Bizarre As You Could Imagine
Robert Rodriguez's Machete has been a strange project from the beginning. It's based on a fake trailer that ran before the little-seen Grindhouse, it stars Danny Trejo of all people, and somehow, amid all of Rodriguez's projects that he teases and then never actually makes, it's going into production this week.
Adding to the weirdness is the cast, which was confirmed this week in Variety. In addition to Trejo, the cast is a veritable grab bag of A-listers and nobodies and washed-up starlets: Robert De Niro, Jessica Alaba, Michelle Rodriguez, Steven Seagal, Lindsay Lohan, Cheech Marin, Don Johnson and Jeff Fahey have all taken roles in the film. How in the world all these people can possibly be part of the same project is beyond me, but I would love to be on set to see the fights about who gets the biggest trailer.
