    Can you imagine a country run by Charlie Sheen?

    Well, now you don't have to!

    Director Robert Rodriguez announced via Twitter that he has cast the former Two and a Half Men star as the president of the United States for his upcoming film, Machete Kills.

    "I just cast Charlie Sheen in #machetekills as the President of the United States! Who better? More soon... http://yfrog.com/h38lgnuj," Rodriguez tweeted along with a photo of himself and our future onscreen commander in chief.

    And, of course, Sheen forwarded the news to his own Twitter family with the proper lead-in, "My Fellow Americans!"

    He's got this role down pat.

    The film, which also stars Michelle Rodriguez, Amber Heard and Mel Gibson, is a sequel to the 2010 film Machete and is slated for a 2013 release.
