Charlie Sheen - Charlie Sheen To Play Us President In Machete Kills

Charlie Sheen will play the US President in 'Machete Kills'.

The 46-year-old actor - who last appeared on the big screen in 2010 comedy 'Due Date', in which he made a cameo appearance as himself - has been cast to portray the political figure by director Robert Rodriguez, who took to his twitter account to confirm the news and post a picture of the pair together.

Accompanying the image, he tweeted: ''I just cast Charlie Sheen in #machetekills as the President of the United States! Who better? More soon..(sic)''

Following the announcement, Charlie later retweeted the message to his 7.5 million followers, adding the phrase ''My fellow Americans!''

The former 'Two and a Half Men' star could seek advice on the role from his father Martin Sheen as the 71-year-old actor has previously played John F. Kennedy in miniseries 'Kennedy - The Presidential Years' and fictional Democratic President Josiah Bartlet in TV series 'The West Wing'.

Charlie will join Sofia Vergara, Jessica Alba, Zoe Saldana and Michelle Rodriguez in the follow up to 2010 action movie 'Machete', with Danny Trejo set to reprise his role as blade-wielding Mexican Federale Machete Cortez.

Robert confirmed filming of 'Machete Kills' has already got underway in Austin, Texas, and he revealed further casting details will be coming soon.

Amber Heard is in line to play an assassin in the movie, which will see Cortez aim to stop Mel Gibson's villain from firing a missile, with Michelle and Jessica set to reprise their respective roles of a taco-truck lady and an immigrations officer.

Danny recently revealed 'Machete Kills' - which is expected to be released in 2013 - will be ''a lot more over the top'' than its predecessor and he admitted he can't wait to kiss Sofia, Jessica, Michelle and Zoe during filming.

He said: ''The sequel to 'Machete', 'Machete Kills' is going to be a lot more over-the-top than 'Machete'.

''We've got Sofia Vergara, who is a star in her own right, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, and Zoe Saldana - and guess what? I get to kiss all of 'em.''
