Lindsay Lohan? If the flick is gonna be anything like the trailer was I don't see Lindsay Lohan in it at all. So out of place.

Some filmmakers have an eye for what an actor/actress can do. It might seem like madness to others, but if it works, everything will click. And if it doesn't work it will all fall apart. Considering this is a pretty big cast with some big names, I think there might be a limited theatrical release for this movie. I like Lindsay when she's not high on ctack. She can be pretty damn sweet - in the movies I mean.

I guess she can be, I never minded her in any of the movies I've seen her in. I just can't see her in the Machete movie if it's in the style of the trailer.

I'm actually less excited about Machete because of the cast rumors. Maybe it'll still be good, who knows?

I want to see Lindasy Lohan. I really didn't care about her personal life, but I see how that affects business. She becomes a big question mark and can ruin a production worth millions. That's why many studios have avoided her and Robert is a nice guy to give her a chance. From here she can really rebuild her career. A lot of people forget how good she was because she made one lousy horror picture and the other stuff.

Chong would probably outlive cockroaches during a nuclear holocaust.

Michelle Rodriguez also joined. I don't get why Robert doesn't direct it. He has all this talent and he's just going to give to some other guy.

I'm not sure about Steven Seagal... Never liked the guy, really.
Though, I haven't seen many of his movies.

It's cool that Robert's willing to give a new director a shot but it's kinda odd as this seems to be something he's had in his head his entire career.

:o What's not to love. He ranks up with Chuck Norris & Jean-Claude Van Damme. Movies with total nonstop mindless violence, whats not to love.

Oh hell. I don't even know what to expect anymore. I wonder if the parts will be more glorified cameos than actual roles.

It prob is cameo type roles. But hope Danny gets to kick Seagal's and Don Johnson's asses.

Don Johnson being in it rocks, love him, but fuck Seagal. Pisses me off.

Is this the beginning of the Robert Rodriguez presents label?

Maybt he wants to prepare for Sin City 2? What i heard he already filmed about 40 minutes of Machete for Grindhouse, even before he got the idea to make a full movie so he already got some of the footage.
