Robert Rodriguez is busy shooting Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For
, which is due in theaters on August 22, 2014. While it was common knowledge that Joseph Gordon-Levitt had joined the cast that includes Josh Brolin, Eva Green, Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, and Bruce Willis (see "Gordon-Levitt in 'Sin City 2'
"), this is the first confirmation that pop star Lady Gaga will have a cameo in the second Sin City
Gordon-Levitt revealed Lady Gaga’s modern noir cinema debut in a radio interview with Boston radio station Jam’n 94.5 (via MTV news
): "She was in Sin City 2
. I did a part for [it]. Mr. Rodriguez asked me to be in, and Lady Gaga is in a scene of it. And I gotta say, she did a really good job. Like, she's a great actress. And I didn't know that. You know she came in and I was like, 'OK sure, they're having a huge pop star do a scene in the movie, I understand.' But then she came in and like, nailed it! She had her character down, and she was like a total pro and did a great job. I was really impressed."
Rodriguez was evidently impressed as well since he quickly signed Lady Gaga to appear in another film he directing, Machete Kills
, the sequel to his 2010 film Machete
starring Danny Trejo.
