*Update: Robert Rodriguez just confirmed via Twitter that Lady Gaga has joined the cast as “La Chameleon”. He has also debuted a special poster for her character.

Remember the days when films boasted of having “a cast of thousands”? Probably not, but maybe you’ve read about them. In any case, Robert Rodriguez’ now-filming Machete Kills might actually be able to make that claim by the time it’s all wrapped up. Here we have a photo of Alexa Vega – you might remember her from the original Spy Kids movies from when she was a tyke – in character as “KillJoy”. Gaga and Vega join Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Mel Gibson, Jessica Alba, Demian Bichir, Amber Heard, Sofia Vergara, Zoe Saldana, William Sadler, Edward James Olmos, Charlie Sheen, Elise Avellan and Electra Avellan.

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. 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. Pic co-stars Demian Bichir and Charlie Sheen as the U.S. president. The first film was based on Rodriguez’ faux trailer included in Dimension Films’ 2007 Grindhouse.

    Gaga looks kinda hot here. Is that wrong? lol Glad to see her venture into acting.

  • ThunderDragoon

    It’s gonna be cool to see Gaga act. She’s awesome.

    After seeing Alexa Vega’s pic online and now seeing that Gaga will be in this, I’ve never seen the first film, but I sure as hell will see this one. I’ve always liked Gaga’s work regardless of the stupid mainstream hate therefore this shall be awesome because she’s perfect for films like this and she more than likely enjoys films like this herself which is why I like her.

    It all just keeps getting crazier. This movie is going to be a wonderful circus, like a modern day Cannonball Run!

    Gaga is a huge fan of both tarantino and rodriguez, she lives by these kind of movies so i’m sure it will be a great debut + cameo, she’s a gifted artist and theatrical presence. i can’t wait!

    The poster cuts her feet off and we cant see her shoes!? What!? This movie is shaping up really nicely. They are missing Lindsay though. She was the star of the first one.

    Wow, excited to see Gaga in this. Loved the first one so I just can’t wait. Also, Alexa is beautiful in that picture
