The last update we got regarding Robert Rodriguez's MACHETE KILLS was that the absolutely gorgeous Zoe Saldana would be joining the cast. Does it get better than that? Well no, no it doesn't.
What's the next best thing though? Edward James Olmos! According to Omelete the "Battlestar Galactica" actor is the latest name to join MACHETE KILLS, which is building up quite the impressive cast! Along with Olmos (above) and Saldana, the flick is also set to star Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba, Sofia Vergara, Demian Bechir with Amber Heard (below) as manipulative assassin known as 'Miss San Antonio' and Mel Gibson as 'Luther Voz,' a cunning arms dealer and death merchant who aims to spread war across the planet by launching a nuclear missile. Nice!
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.
