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.
This is a poorly written sequel to the original Machete, which, at least had a cohesive storyline. Rodriguez must have been high when he scripted this film. The only redeeming feature is Charlie Sheen; here billed as Carlos Estevez, as the whacked out president of the U.S. His moments are too few, however, and cannot save this mess. Danny Trejo is good as Machete, and Mel Gibson shows up as a James Bond like Dr. Evil nemesis. Michelle Rodriguez is back, as is Jessica Alba; but they are given little to do. Several badly staged gun battles fill up the screen and I was extremely disappointed, especially given my positive review of the first movie.

Danny Trejo always plays such effeminate characters. No wonder he isn't an A list star.
There's poop on my toe.
Wasn't Lilo in the first Machete? She didn't even rate an invite back to be in this one? I wonder why? lol...
Those two fellas are a couple of gays, right?
This movie looks like it's going to be hilarious. I don't know about you guys but with all the blood and gore to be expected, I think it'll be a fun, campy movie to see. Enjoy it for what it is; a fun, silly, not taking itself too seriously movie.
Mashetty Kills. With frozen poo droplet bullets.
