International martial arts action star Marko Zaror joins the cast of Rick Schwartz produced and Robert Rodriguez directed Machete Kills, the sequel to Robert Rodriguez’s cult favorite Machete. Zaror joins Jessica Alba, Sofia Vergara, Lady Gaga, Charlie Sheen, Mel Gibson, and many others in an all-star ensemble. Zaror, dubbed the Bruce Lee of Latin America, is cast very literally as Zaror, henchman to Mel Gibson’s villainous character.
Rodriguez explains, “I created this role specifically for him. He is an incredible martial artist with physics defying speed and agility, and he has a great movie star presence. I’m sure we’ll be working together again soon.”
Zaror was equally complementary. “To get a chance to work with Robert Rodriguez was a dream of mine since I saw El Mariachi. He has made some of the coolest characters ever. I am honored to have had the experience to work with him and his exceptional team.”
Along with the announcement also came a terrific new character poster, following earlier character posters of Lady Gaga and William Sadler featured here.
