Johnny Depp, who? Don’t you know it’s Danny Trejo the ladies all go crazy for? At least, that seems to be the case in the upcoming Machete Kills, the follow-up to 2010’s over-the-top revenge thriller Machete, which will feature Trejo crossing paths this time around with the stunning likes of Sofia Vergara, Jessica Alba, Lady Gaga, Zoe Saldana, Vanessa Hudgens, Alexa Vega, Michelle Rodriguez and bona fide fanboy fantasy girl Amber Heard (Zombieland, Pineapple Express, Drive Angry.) Some former Mexican Federales with an ax to grind have all the luck.
In a newly released still from the Robert Rodriguez action/exploitation caper, the 26-year-old actress — who has been making headlines more recently not for The Playboy Club, rather the rumors that she’s dating her Rum Diary co-star — gets up close and personal with her other leading man here. In Machete Kills (which is slated for a 2013 release date) Heard plays beauty queen Miss San Antonio as Trejo’s vigilante Machete looks to stop a madman and a billionaire this time around, one of whom is played by none other than Mel Gibson.
So, you can decide what’s crazier, the overall concept of Machete Kills or the now-burned-in-your-brain image of a dolled-up Heard straddling Trejo. Check it out:
