It's official, Lady GaGa is expanding her career to the silver screen. The Mother Monster is set to make her acting debut in "Machete Kills", director Robert Rodriguez confirms. The outlandish songstress will tackle a sexy character called La Chemeleon.
Taking to his Twitter to announce GaGa's casting on Thursday, July 26, Rodriguez writes, "I just finished working with @LadyGaga on @MacheteKills , she kicked SO MUCH ASS! Holy Smokes. Blown away!" Along with the message, the helmer posts a character poster for Chemeleon.
The one-sheet features the "Born This Way" hitmaker sporting Marilyn Monroe-esque curly yellow hair. She looks sizzling in a skimpy bustier that she pairs with scarf made from a real wolf. Finishing her sexy look with black stockings, the superstar is also pictured holding a revolver on her hand.
Responding to Rodriguez's posting, GaGa retweets the message and adds, "Yes its true, I will be making my debut as an actress ln the amazing MACHETE KILLS BY @RODRIGUEZ IM SO EXCITED!!! AH! Filming was insane."
In the sequel to "Machete", GaGa will join Danny Trejo, Jessica Alba, Zoe Saldana, Sofia Vergara, Mel Gibson and Amber Heard. Charlie Sheen has recently been added to the cast ensemble, tackling the role of the U.S. President.
To be released nationwide sometime in 2013, "Machete Kills" follows the titular assassin who is called upon by the U.S. government to stop a cartel leader and an arms dealer who owns weapon in space. The script is written by Kyle Ward.
