Charlie Sheen Cast as U.S. President in Machete Kills

Yes, you read that headline correctly. Honestly? This could very well work as long as Sheen stays in character and doesn't just appear as Charlie Sheen. Then again, if they cast him as Charlie Sheen in a bizarro world in which he actually was elected to run the country, that'd be even funnier.

The news came moments ago from Robert Rodriguez;s Twitter account: "I just cast Charlie Sheen in #machetekills as the President of the United States! Who better?"

Sheen joins the previously announced Sofia Vergara, Edward James Olmos, Mel Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba, Amber Heard, Demian Bichir, Zoe Saldana, and of course Danny Trejo in Robert Rodriguez's sequel which will be distributed by 20th Century Fox.

Machete Kills finds the titular ex-federale (Danny Trejo) recruited by the U.S. government to stop a terrorist named Mendez the Madman, who happens to be Mexico's leading cartel dealer. Mel Gibson is set to co-star as Luther Voz, a cunning arms dealer and death merchant who aims to spread war across the planet by launching a missile.

Look for more soon!

Okay, Rob, if you're not going to take this seriously, then I'm leaving.

Would you like a lift? I've had the car packed and ready to go for a while.

Considering he got Robert De Niro for the first film...I honestly shouldn't be surprised about any of the casting for this film.
