Robert Rodriguez Reveals "Machete" Cast Line-Up

Robert Rodriguez recently confirmed the cast for the full length film being made based on a trailer he shot called Machete as part of the Grindhouse double feature he directed alongside Quentin Tarantino. Danny Trejo has long been signed on to play the lead, but rumors have been swirling for weeks surrounding who would be filling out the ensemble cast.

Some major star power is involved, including Academy Award-winning actor Robert De Niro. Jessica Alba and "Fast and Furious" star Michelle Rodriguez were named, as well as troubled actress Lindsay Lohan. The new film will also reunite Cheech Marin and Don Johnson, who co-starred in the hit series Nash Bridges together for years. Even martial arts expert Steven Seagal has a role to play in the film!

It sounds like a pitch perfect cast for a movie that is sure to take schlock and gore to the next level. Check out trailer below:

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
