Would you vote Charlie Sheen for President of the United States?

Or perhaps this is a more realistic question: Would you watch a movie in which Charlie Sheen plays the President of the United States?

Director Robert Rodriguez has cast the controversial actor in that exact role for the upcoming Machete sequel, Machete Kills, posting a photo of himself and Sheen on Twitter last night along with the announcement:

Machete Kills will be a follow-up to the 2010 action thriller and once again star Jessica Alba as Sartana Rivera, along with Danny Trejo as Machete Cortez. Michelle Rodriguez and Amber Heard will also play (HOT!) roles.

No release date has been announced for the sequel, but production gets underway next month.

DreamWorks hopes to release Happy Smekday! in 2014. The film will mark Rihanna's voice acting debut, following her debut live-action role in Battleship.

You can always count on Rih-Rih to star in Chris Brown-Drake drama, too ... even if she's nowhere to be found when the fists and bottles start flying.

Jim Carrey is now officially saying no to the long-awaited sequel to his 1994 smash hit Dumb and Dumber, months after apparently agreeing to the film.

Is this move smart, dumb or dumber from a business standpoint?

Time will tell, but sources say Carrey wasn't feeling the love executives at New Line and Warner Bros., who in his view "showed a lack of enthusiasm."

The film was/is supposed to be titled Dumb and Dumber To.

"I would have thought Dumb and Dumber To was a no-brainer," the star himself said in a statement confirming the report. "After all, it's implied in the title."

Alas, no.

Perhaps studios weren't psyched about the box office of the Farrelly brothers' last venture, The Three Stooges, which sort of tanked at the box office.

Still, Carrey and Jeff Daniels in a Dumb and Dumber sequel that fans have clamored for since the mid-90s? How would that not be a hit?

In any case, Carrey, who made news last week for being criticized by Jenny McCarthy, will next appear with Steve Carell in the comedy Burt Wonderstone.

Angelina Jolie was brilliantly cast as Maleficent, the villain in Sleeping Beauty, in Disney's forthcoming live-action film based on and titled after the character.

Need proof? How about the striking photo below.

The Oscar-winning star, whose world-famous cheekbones and lips feel tailor made for the role, dons Maleficent's sinister horns in the first promotional pic:

A retelling of the 1959 animated classic (based on a well-known fairy tale), production finally began on Maleficent in England's Pinewood Studios June 13.

Disney says the film, an origins story of sorts, "reveals events that hardened her heart and drove her to curse the baby, Aurora," played by Elle Fanning.

"It's a really great script. I'm having a lot of fun. I've already got my horns fitted," Jolie said of the role in March. "My kids are very happy too."

"It's not anti-princess, but it's the first time they're looking at this epic woman [in a different way]," she explained of the new take on the story.

"Just because she protects herself and is aggressive, it doesn't mean she can't have other [warmer] qualities ... You have to figure out the puzzle of what she is."

As for Angelina directing 50 Shades of Grey? Not happening.

Madagascar 3 roared to its second consecutive box office victory this weekend, easily outperforming a couple of disappointing newcomers: Adam Sandler's embarrassing That's My Boy and Tom Cruise's long-haired turn in Rock of Ages.

The animated triquel fell 41 percent from its opening weekend, but still came close to doubling up the second top performer, Prometheus, which dropped 60 percent from a week ago.

Rock of Ages, meanwhile, reportedly cost over $65 million to produce, yet earned just over $15 million. It's not a great sign for star Julianne Hough, whose career hasn't exactly taken off since leaving Dancing with the Stars.

Here's a look at the weekend's biggest money makers:

  1. Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted: $35.5 million
  2. Prometheus: $20.2 million
  3. Rock of Ages: $15.1 million
  4. Snow White and the Huntsman: $13.8 million
  5. That’s My Boy: $13.0 million

Despite crashing her car and lying to police, Lindsay Lohan's career has yet to crash and burn. The hot mess just landed another movie role!

Currently starring as Elizabeth Taylor in Liz & Dick, Lohan has also been booked for The Canyons, a contemporary thriller, according to E!

Lindsay Lohan Lips

It was Ellis himself who first broke news of Lindsay Lohan's casting on Twitter, along with that of her leading man ... porn star James Deen.

"James Deen and Lindsay Lohan have been cast in The Canyons," he wrote in the first of a series of tweets retweeted by Lindsay herself.

"And I am beyond thrilled that James Deen and Lindsay Lohan will be playing the parts of Christian and Tara in The Canyons by BEE."

"Could not have dreamed of a better cast. Lindsay nailed it."

That's what the guy driving the 18-wheeler said. Too soon?

We are reportedly down to three for the role of Finnick Odair.

With Robert Pattinson (thankfully) out of the running for this key Catching Fire character, E! News claims producers have narrowed their choices down to the following trio:

  1. Taylor Kitsch: Beloved Friday Night Lights star who anchored two of the biggest flops in Hollywood history, John Carter and Battleship.
  2. Armie Hammer: Oscar nominee and upcoming Lone Ranger opposite Johnny Depp as Tonto.
  3. Garrett Hedlund: Starring opposite Kristen Stewart in On the Road.

E! also claims The Hunger Games sequel might go with a relative nobody for Finnick, who is a former winner of the story's annual competition and possesses both a ridiculously amazing body and a cocky personality.

Which of these actors would be best suited for the part?

And the Winner is?

Snow White and the Huntsman avoided any curses at the box office this weekend, taking the crown rather easily with an impressive haul of $56.3 million.

For those with interest, the figure is the high mark for any Twilight actor in a non-Twilight role Taylor Lautner's Valentine's Day in 2010, a film in which the Twilight Saga stud only played a bit role.

  2. Men in Black 3: $29.3 million
  3. The Avengers: $20.3 million
  4. Battleship: $4.8 million
  5. The Dictator: $4.7 million

Detainees at Guantanamo Bay subjected to Sesame Street music for days on end in efforts to break their will, according to an Al Jazeera documentary.

In the film, called "Songs of War," detainees at the U.S. Naval base have been forced to wear headphones blaring Sesame Street music on repeat.

All in the name of messing with them so badly that they'll talk.

The award-winning Sesame Street composer Christopher Cerf (2:00 mark above) tells Al Jazeera, "My first reaction was 'this just can't possibly be true.'"

"I didn't care for the idea that I was helping break down prisoners, but it was much worse when I heard later that they were actually using the music in Guantanamo for long-term interrogations and obviously to inflict pain on prisoners so they would talk."

Wow. Elmo can get a little annoying after awhile, but really?

Note to CIA operatives: LFO's "Summer Girls" would work a lot better, or anything by that rumored hermaphrodite Lady Gaga. The extremists HATE her.
