The release of Robert Rodriguez's sequel "Machete Kills" is just around the corner. The first film, which starred Danny Trejo as the ex-Federale agent, was a mix of action, humor and an abundance of colorful characters. Add the unique storytelling that Rodriguez has built his career on, and you certainly had a memorable film, that is definitely not for everyone.

The sequel, much like its predecessor, will feature a few random cameos. Charlie Sheen is one such cameo, and it's been reported that he'll be changing his name back to his birth name, Carlos Estevez, for the film. Seems fitting if there was ever an appropriate project, given the content.

It's common knowledge that Charlie took a screen name, just like his father Martin did, when he started making films. Charlie's brother Emilio decided to go a different path, and kept the family name instead of adopting the family stage one.

Is this Carlos' attempt to reinvent himself? This is the first film in his acting career that will not be billed under his stage name. It will be interesting to see if his behavior and not just his name will also be getting a makeover.

What do you make of this name change news? Let us know in the comments section below!
