Watch: Behind the Scenes of 'Machete Kills' with Villain Mel Gibson
Sadly, the high profile nature of entertainment/gossip TV shows like "Extra" gives them a big step up over everyone else when it comes to visiting film sets and getting exclusive interviews. In this case, the show visited the set of Machete Kills and spent a few moments with director Robert Rodriguez, but more importantly, the film's villain, Mel Gibson. The actor has laid pretty low key as of late, so it's good to see him show up again and not being crazy or racist. Gibson's performance in the film might help turn his career around as it's a fun role that he says, "kind of like a Bond villain, but also a gourmet chef." Watch below!
In addition, character actor William Sadler is also officially part of the cast as he tweeted his character poster, similar to the one used to reveal Lady Gaga's role in the film last week. Here it is via Twitter:
In the sequel Machete Kills, the badass Mexican (Danny Trejo) is recruited by the U.S. government to help track down an arms dealer in Mexico who's looking to launch a weapon into space. The film is already shooting in Austin with Amber Heard, Mel Gibson, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, William Sadler, Charlie Sheen and more also starring. There's no release date set for the film yet so stay tuned for more.

let's see if ole Mel can destroy Rodriguez's career as quickly as he killed Jodi Foster's. Anyone who banks on this ass deserves it.
