After becoming famous for being Charlie Sheen, the former sitcom star is dusting off his birth name for Robert Rodriguez's upcoming movie, "Machete Kills."
A trailer for the September feature debuted Thursday, and instead of the credits listing Charlie Sheen, it's Carlos Estevez who's "introduced" in his role as the U.S. president.
The actor joins returning star Danny Trejo, who's reprising his role as assassin Machete Cortez. After 2010's "Machete," the lethal character is back in action, tasked with hunting down an arms dealer (Mel Gibson) through Mexico for the U.S. government.
The cast list for this is lengthy, and the teaser clip - just a minute-long - dedicates the bulk of its brief run time to take a roll call: Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Jessica Alba, Antonio Banderas, Demian Bichir, and Lady Gaga in her big screen debut are all included.
"Machete Kills" hits theaters September 13.
