Lady Gaga to make her movie debut in 'Machete Kills'
While Gaga is not an acting novice -- that pop persona takes some acting chops, and so does playing her alter-ego, Jo Calderone -- she appeared in an episode of "The Sopranos" as a teenager, this is her first major movie role. (No, that alien cameo in "Men in Black III" doesn't count.)
Rodriguez tweeted a photo of the singer-turned-actress in the movie. Turns out she'll be playing a character called La Chameleon with an old school Hollywood glamor look.
Gaga confirmed the news herself on her Twitter account. "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," she writes.
With a cast like this, "Machete Kills" will definitely be interesting, if nothing else...
