Yes, Robert Rodriguez's "Machete Kills" has wrapped, but that doesn't mean there aren't more surprises in store. This morning brings news that yet another name has joined the cast, and it will be one that will be bringing some serious punching and kicking power to the pic.

Chilean martial arts star Marko Zaror will play the henchman to Mel Gibson's villain in the upcoming film. While he's not a household name yet, genre fans will probably best know him from "Mandrill," the action flick from a couple of years back that made some minor waves on the festival circuit and got a limited stateside release. But as you'll see in the sizzle reel for the actor below, he will bring a new and dangerous challenge to Danny Trejo's lead character and provide the biggest platform yet for Zaror to show his skills. But, if you're getting a big martial arts guy to join your film, why would you put him holding a gun on the poster? Here's hoping it's not an indication that his talents will be sidelined for explosions.

Michelle Rodriguez, Demián Bichir, Amber Heard, Vanessa Hudgens, Sofia Vergara, Zoe Saldana, Jessica Alba, Alexa Vega, Lady Gaga, William Sadler, the Avellan Twins and more round out the cast. No release date yet, but it's likely just a matter of time before there's an announcement by this point. [Twitch]
