Charlie Sheen to hit the West Wing as U.S. president in 'Machete Kills'
Look out, Obama - Charlie Sheen is coming after your job.
The "Anger Management" star has been cast as the President of the United States in "Machete Kills," the sequel to the 2010 grindhouse-action flick "Machete." He joins previously-announced cast members Danny Trejo (returning as the ex-Federale title character), Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, Amber Heard, Sofia Vergara, Demián Bichir, Tom Savini, Zoë Saldana, Edward James Olmos, Tony Jaa and, yes, Mel Gibson.
Writer/director Robert Rodriguez revealed the news via Twitter, stating:
"I just cast Charlie Sheen in #machetekills as the President of the United States! Who better? More soon..."
And then he posted a photo of himself with the actor, which you can view here if you even care.
The post-meltdown actor follows in father Martin Sheen's footsteps with the new gig; the elder thesp starred as U.S. President Jeb Bartlett on Aaron Sorkin's "The West Wing" for seven seasons.
Sheen's new comedy series "Anger Management" premieres June 28 on FX.
