Omelete is reporting that “Battlestar Galactica” and “Dexter” star Edward James Olmos (pictured below) has landed an undisclosed role in Machete Kills, the sequel to Robert Rodriguez’ Machete that he hopes to solo direct this time around.
Olmos joins previously announced Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Mel Gibson, Jessica Alba, Demian Bichir, Amber Heard, Sofia Vergara and Zoe Saldana in the flick spawned from a faix trailer included in Tarantino and Rodriguez’ 2007 Grindhouse.
“The sequel finds the titular ex-federale (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 nuclear missile.” Heard will play a manipulative assassin code-named Miss San Antonio.
