This Just In: Killing Is His (and Possibly Your) Business and Business Is Good!

Open casting call for 'Machete Kills'

¡Viva la Raza!

Are you handy with a blade? Are you 18 years of age or older? Do you hate texting? Do you hate Arizona's Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio even more than texting? Would you text him to death if your iPhone had an "Edged Weapons App?" Then this, mi amigo/amiga, is for you …

Beth Sepko Casting & Third Coast Extras is holding an open casting call for Robert Rodriguez's Machete Kills on Saturday, June 2, 10am-6pm at Austin Studios.

It says "No experience necessary," but if you're lucky you'll end up getting cast as "Mutilated civilian carcass No. 3" and covered in Hawgfly Productions patented fake gore. (We've done it and it's supercool fun!) Or, you know, maybe you'll just get to hang out with Danny Trejo. (We've done it and it's supercool fun, too!) Either way, this is sure to be a packed cattle call, so put on your scowliest game face and get their early. (We're gonna do it, and it's gonna be a blast.) See you there, Mel Gibson.
