Charlie Sheen to play US President in new film

Friday June 22, 2012

Charlie Sheen has been cast as the US President in Robert Rodriguez's next film Machete Kills.

The film director took to Twitter to announce the casting.

"I just cast Charlie Sheen in #machetekills as the President of the United States! Who better?" he wrote, posting a picture of the two of them together.

Former Two And A Half Men star Charlie, who earlier this month announced he would be "done" with television after Anger Management, retweeted his new director's message, adding: "My fellow Americans..."

He will be starring alongside Mel Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez and Amber Heard in the film, which is set to be released next year.
