A lot of casting news has hit today. First up, we start with the revelation that Zoe Saldana has come aboard Machete Kills for director Robert Rodriguez. No information has been revealed about her character, but it is known that she will be making out with star Danny Trejo at some point in the film. Consider her one of Machete's girls.
Mads Mikkelsen is joining the Marvel sequel Thor 2 as a villain. His role is still unspecified. And Ashley Hamilton could be taking a small villain role in Iron Man 3 as Firepower, one of the comic's lesser known characters.
In other sequel news, Anthony Hopkins is thinking about becoming one of the retired CIA operatives forced back into active duty alongside returning Red 2 cast members Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, and John Malkovich. Oher new cast additions include Catherine Zeta-Jones (she dips beneath the lasers!) and Byung-hun Lee.
Bradley Cooper will follow up his third turn as Phil in The Hangover Part III with the more serious role of a Navy SEAL in American Sniper, based on Chris Kyle's memoir. Comedian Kevin Hart, on the other hand, isn't going the dramatic route with his follow up to the smash hit Think Like a Man. He'll continue to keep things on the lighter side with a supporting role in Kevin James's next comedy Valet Guys.
