Full Cast for MACHETE Announced

     August 5, 2009


A few weeks ago we got some speculation on who might be in Robert Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis’ upcoming “Machete”, based on Rodriguez’ fake trailer in “Grindhouse” and starring Danny Trejo (as all movies should).  The previous news got 2-out-of-3 right which isn’t bad.

Hit the jump to find out which ones signed on along with the rest of the cast.

According to Variety’s BFD blog, Robert De Niro and Michelle Rodriguez will co-star in the film.  Sadly, it looks like Jonah Hill isn’t coming on board.  That doesn’t mean the film will be bad, but that Hill is just selective with his projects and I can respect that.

But fret not the absence of Jonah Hill! The rest of the cast is one of the best ensembles of all-time: Jessica Alba, Steven Seagal, Lindsay Lohan, Cheech Marin, Don Johnson, and Jeff Fahey.  I can take or leave Alba and Lohan but Seagal, Marin (granted, he’s a Rodriguez’ staple), Don Johnson, and Jeff Fajey.  I would rather this be a movie full of character actors (especially since Trejo is one of the most prestigious of all-time) but I’ll certainly take these gentlemen.
