Lady Gaga Joins Machete Kills, Character Poster Revealed

Following Machete Kills photos of Alexa Vega’s decidedly more adult look earlier today, writer/director Robert Rodriguez has revealed a surprise addition to the sequel’s cast: Lady Gaga will be playing a character called La Chameleón. What’s more, there’s even a teaser image that you can check out below.

“I just finished working with @LadyGaga on @MacheteKills,” Rodriguez tweeted, “she kicked SO MUCH ASS! Holy Smokes. Blown away!”

In the sequel, ex-federale Machete (Danny Trejo) is recruited by the U.S. government to stop an arms dealer (Mel Gibson) from launching a deadly missile.

Michelle Rodriguez, Demian Bichir, Amber Heard, Sofia Vergara, Zoe Saldana and Charlie Sheen also star.
