Demian Bichir In Talks For 'MACHETE KILLS'

It looks writer and director Robert Rodriguez is looking to pull out all the stops with Machete Kills. Variety reports that Oscar nominated actor Demian Bichir is in talks for a supporting role. The Mexican actor was nominated for Best Actor at the 2012 Oscars for his powerful performance in the film A Better Life. He might be best known for his role on Weeds but has also starred in films like Che and the upcoming Oliver Stone film Savages. Bichir's role is currently unknown but it wouldn't hurt to cast him in the second meaty villain role as murderous cartel head Mendez. Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez and Jessica Alba are returning with Mel Gibson set to play an arms dealing villain. Michelle Williams was also wanted for a supporting role but there's no word on the that development just yet.
