Robert Rodriguez’s Danny Trejo flick, Machete, made $26 million at the box office back in 2010, which is pretty good considering its $10 milion budget. So, hey! Why not a sequel? Rodriguez in casting Lindsay Lohan and Steven Seagal, he’s rounded up some big names with tiny, miniscule reputations in Charlie Sheen (under his original name, Carlos Estevez) and Mel Gibson. Great idea, Rodriguez: Exploit the fact that both are horrible human beings to boost your box office!

The trailer — which also features Amber Heard, Michelle Rodriguez, Lady Gaga, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Jessica Alba and Sofia Vergara — admittedly looks batsh*t insane, but Danny Trejo deserves better than to be associated with the like of Sheen and Gibson.
