The Huffington Post reported that the Fame Monster will make her movie debut in splatter-film specialist Robert Rodriguez’s Machete Kills. Gaga will play a character called La Chameleon in an oddball cast that includes Charlie Sheen, Sofia Vergara, Mel Gibson and Michelle Rodriguez.
A poster depicting Gaga’s character, which will soon be adorning the bedrooms of alienated teenagers everywhere, depicts the bare-shouldered pop star holding a smoking gun and wearing what appears to be the pelt of a white wolf around her.
Alas, the image, and Gaga’s blond gun-moll hairdo, is more than a tad reminiscent of a couple of 1990s movie roles played by another pop star who Gaga is often accused of slavishly copying: Madonna. Lady Gaga is simply inviting more Madonna comparisons.
The poster image calls to mind Madge’s performance as Breathless Mahoney in the 1990 film adaptation of Dick Tracy, with maybe a little bit of Rebecca Carlson from Madonna’s 1993 sex bomb,Body of Evidence. (If you haven’t seen it, don’t.)
