When the cast for Robert Rodriguez's Machete was announced, the variety of talent involved seemed impossible to believe. Steven Seagal and Jessica Alba? Robert DeNiro and Lindsay Lohan? Together, in the same movie? To take away some of our doubts, Rodriguez confirmed Lohan's appearance:
[Lindsay]'s one of the people in the movie. Her name is April. She's the daughter of one of the bad guys. I can't say too much. Oh, she's already been there. I've already shot some great stuff with her. Yeah, I shot her on Wednesday. She was fantastic.
Pictures of a bikini-clad Lohan from the set of Machete have already made it online. But Lohan isn't the only part of the Machete shoot that pleased Rodriguez:
We've been shooting this week, and it's just elevated from what you think it's gonna be by so much that I think the main note people will have watching it is: it delivered way beyond what it needed to deliver for me to be happy.
Machete started as a fake trailer for the Grindhouse movie Rodriguez made with Quentin Tarantino. Rodriguez says the footage shot from the trailer will be used and the rest the movie of it will be "bridging around it." Despite the already enormous and eclectic cast, Rodriguez says he still needs to "cast a few more people" in "main character" roles.
