Robert Rodriguez loves casting some of the industry’s hottest actresses in his genre films, from Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson to the lovely Rose McGowan. And if Machete star Danny Trejo is to be believed, Rodriguez is about to add yet another beauty to his acting stable.

Speaking to Moviehole, Trejo spoke openly about the upcoming sequel Machete Kills, focusing primarily on the ladies his killer-for-hire will be able to romance.

“The sequel to Machete, Machete Kills, is going to be a lot more over-the-top than Machete. We’ve got Sofia Vergara, who is a star in her own right, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, and Zoe Saldana – and guess what? I get to kiss all of ‘em.”

That's great news for Trejo, at the very least. Now, as Moviehole points out, this is the first time we’ve hear Saldana’s name attached to Rodriguez’s sequel. She fits, at least on the surface. First, she’s drop-dead gorgeous. Second, she has carried her own in multiple action films, from The Losers to Avatar and Colombiana. In fact, given the films Saldana has been in to date, she might bring the most experience with massive firepower that any other person in the cast.

But it’s one of Saldana’s other high-profile films that might get in the way of her shooting , and that’s Paramount’s anticipated Star Trek sequel. As far as we know, J.J. Abrams has wrapped shooting on the film, which is heading to theaters next summer. But on a big-budget, effects-heavy film like Star Trek, the potential for reshoots always remain a possibility. Rodriguez shoots fast and on the fly, so it’s likely Saldana can work around a Star Trek obstacle if it emerges. But is she in Machete Kills … and do you think she’s a good fit?
