Charlie Sheen is going to play the President of the United States in the Robert Rodriguez directed grindhouse film Machete Kills. The news came from Rodriquez himself when he tweeted out the following,
I just cast Charlie Sheen in#machetekills as the President of the United States! Who better? More soon…
The film brings back Danny Trejo as Machete, and the rest of the cast includes Jessica Alba, Mel Gibson, Amber Heard, Sofia Vergara, and Zoe Saldana. The film is currently shooting, and it continues the adventures of Machete, who is called upon by the U.S. government to battle his way through Mexico in order to take down an arms dealer who looks to launch a weapon into space.
I guess it makes complete sense that Rodriquez would cast Sheen in this role, after all this is the kind of film that doesn't take itself seriously. What do you think about Sheen taking on the role of the President?
