Die Hard 2 baddie William Sadler the latest name to join Robert Rodriguez's Machete Kills

Fresh off the news that Elise and Electra Avellan will be joining the jam-packed cast of Robert Rodriguez's MACHETE KILLS comes another casting announcement for the film you might want to hear about.

It seems character actor William Sadler is the latest name to join the project, which along with the Crazy Babysitter Twins also stars Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen, Danny Trejo, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, Edward James Olmos, Zoe Saldana, Sofia Vergara, Demian Bechir and Amber Heard (below).

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.

Sadler (above) dropped the news over on his Twitter account, which is where you'll also find the picture you see below featuring Robert Rodriguez on set! Apparently MACHETE KILLS just wrapped it's first full day of filming. Nice! Here's Sadler's 'tweets' if you don't believe me:

"Great dinner w/t Robert Rodriguez, Cuba Gooding jr. & friends. #MacheteKills is gonna ROCK."

"It's 113 degrees today here in Austin filming #MacheteKills. Acting as fast as I can."

"First full day of filming on #MacheteKills the most fun you can have doing this stuff. Seriously cool."

"Mi amigo, #MacheteKills director Robert Rodriguez in his nature habitat."

Wait a minute... Does that mean Cuba Gooding Jr... Nah. Let's not jump to conclusions.

For those of you that don't know Sadler, you might want to check out THE MIST, DIE HARD 2, THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, THE GREEN MILE or my personal fave, BILL AND TED'S BOGUS JOURNEY.

With MACHETE KILLS currently filming I'm sure we'll be getting a lot more MACHETE-themed updates in the near future, so be sure to check back soon for those as they come our way.
