Some Wolf Had to Die Just So That Lady Gaga Could Be in ‘Machete Kills’

At least the wolf didn’t have to live through a surely insane photo shoot?

In perhaps today’s weirdest and most completely unexpected announcement, Lady Gaga has apparently joined the cast of Robert Rodriquez’s upcoming Machete Kills. The director announced both Gaga’s casting and her completion of work via a tweet this morning that read, “I just finished working with @LadyGaga on @MacheteKills, she kicked SO MUCH ASS! Holy Smokes. Blown away!” I, too, am totally blown away.

Perhaps because no one would believe even Rodriguez himself when it comes to such totally bizarre news, he also included a character poster for Gaga in her role as “La Chameleon,” which you can check out after the break. Chameleon or not, this looks like a pretty standard look for a woman who once showed up to an awards show in a giant egg.

Machete Kills stars Machete leading man Danny Trejo, back as the eponymous Machete, now tasked with helping the U.S. government stop an arms dealer bent on world destruction. The film also stars Mel Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Demian Bichir, Amber Heard, Sofia Vergara, Zoe Saldana, and Charlie Sheen, in case you were somehow convinced that this thing wasn’t going to be completely bonkers.
