New Character Poster For Robert Rodriguez’s Machete Kills Features Lady Gaga In Her Acting Debut

Here’s a surprise announcement from the set of Robert Rodriguez‘s action sequel Machete Kills. The director has announced, along with this brand new poster to confirm the news, that he has just finished filming scenes with Lady Gaga.

I just finished working with @LadyGaga on @MacheteKills , she kicked SO MUCH ASS! Holy Smokes. Blown away!

The singer has confirmed the story – very excitedly – on her own Twitter page.

Yes its true, I will be making my debut as an actress ln the amazing MACHETE KILLS BY @RODRIGUEZ IM SO EXCITED!!! AH! Filming was insane.

Can Gaga act? Well, Rodriguez seems to think so. The film is expected to release some time in 2013 so you’ll have to wait until then to find out what all the insanity and smoke is about. I’m guessing we’ll see a little fire even before release, if PETA catch sight of that wolf skin she’s wearing.

If you just can’t get enough of the ladies of Machete Kills, here’s a bonus sneak peek at Alexa Vega in character as Killjoy.
