Lady Gaga Is Quite The Chameleon

29 Jul

The sequel for Robert Rodriguez’s 2010 shoot-’em-up Machete, the ingeniously named Machete Kills, is famous for its crazy casting. No other film can boast having Mel Gibson, Cuba Gooding Jr., Michelle Rodriguez, Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard, and Spy Kid Alexa Vega on one call sheet. Plus, Charlie Sheen is the president in Machete Land. No joke.

I hope Sheen and Gibson sport equally sexy costumes.

Well, there’s one more name to add to the Machete madness: Lady Gaga. Mother Monster has chosen Rodriguez’s latest film to make her acting debut. Nope, definetely didn’t see that one coming. In Kills she will play La Chameleon, a vampy fox/wolf (?) wearing smoking gun according to a recently released poster (featured below). Weirdly enough Gooding Jr. is listed as “El Chameleon” on IMDb. Are they a team? Or did Rodriguez just drop Gooding’s El for Gaga’s La? Here’s to hoping they’re a kickass biracial couple.

In case you were wondering what this movie could actually be about, the US government sends Danny Trejo’s Machete into Mexico to stop an arms dealer from launching a weapon into space. If anyone can see where Lady Gaga falls into that, please let me know.

I see what you’re doing there… No wait. I don’t. At all.

Rodriguez’s casting choice is clearly just an attempt to help us feel comfortable with Lady Gaga The Actress. Everyone knows that Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino are BFF’s. And everyone knows that Kill Bill Vol. 3 is somewhere in the works (but it’s QT, “in the works” could take 10 years). So, no one should be surprised when Gaga is cast as a very grown up B.B.- it’s bound to happen.
