Mel Gibson and Charlie Sheen to share screen in `Machete Kills`
Washington: Mel Gibson and Charlie Sheen will star together in ‘Machete Kills’, director Robert Rodriguez has revealed on his Twitter page.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sheen was just cast to play the US president in the film.
“I just cast Charlie Sheen in #machetekills as the President of the United States! Who better? More soon...” Fox News quoted Rodriguez as tweeting.
The ensemble movie which has already begun filming in Austin, Texas, also co-stars one of Hollywood’s other most legendarily unpredictable actors, Gibson, as well as a spate of sexy stars, including Jessica Alba, Amber Heard, Sofia Vergara and Zoe Saldana.
It is unclear what role the 56-year-old actor is taking on in the sequel to the pulpy 2010 movie ‘Machete’.
The move to cast Sheen adds to the actor’s career rehabilitation after a very public meltdown last year which saw him exiting the hit show ‘Two and a Half Men’.
The 46-year-old actor had said in a Playboy interview recently that the episode was a “psychotic break.”
