Joining Danny Trejo in the cast ensemble of Robert Rodriguez's upcoming film are among others, Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba, Lindsay Lohan and Steven Seagal.


After weeks of speculation, the line of actors joining the cast ensemble of Robert Rodriguez's "Machete" have been revealed. Some big names, including Academy Award-winning actor Robert De Niro, "Awake" actress Jessica Alba and martial art expert Steven Seagal, are among those mentioned in the list, as reported by Variety.

Beside the three stars above, "Machete" will also have "Fast and Furious" actress Michelle Rodriguez. Cheech Marin, who appeared several times in TV series "Lost", Don Johnson, who is famous for his role in 1980s TV cop series "Miami Vice", and Jeff Fahey, who was featured in Bruce Payne's 2007 film "Messages", will join leading man Danny Trejo as well.

Actress Lindsay Lohan has a part in the movie as well after previously being rumored to have a role waiting in the film following director Rodriguez's offer. Prior to this confirmation, the "Mean Girls" star has spread the news herself on August 1. She wrote on her inclusion in the film's cast with a post on her Twitter account, writing "Something was made official today!!!!!!!!!", before providing a link to "Machete" page on IMDB, which listed her in the potential cast ensemble.

"Machete" is reported to start production sometime this week. Robert Rodriguez will team up with Ethan Maniquis to direct the movie. Planned to be released in 2010, "Machete" is an expansion of the fake trailers for Robert Rodriquez and Quentin Tarantino double feature, "Grindhouse". The story centers on a Mexican ex-Federal agent with a gift for wielding a blade, who hides out as a day laborer and is double-crossed by a corrupt state senator.
