Lindsay Lohan's missing from the new 'Machete' trailer. Coincidence? We think not...

When it rains it pours. Just ask Lindsay Lohan. As the troubled 24-year-old prepares to head off for a 90-day hitch in the pokey for violating the terms of her probation, she’s now being hit with the cold reality that she’s also persona non grata on-screen, too. After all, the actress is nowhere to be found in the latest trailer for her upcoming film, Robert Rodriguez’s Machete. The Mexican avenger flick, which grew out of a faux trailer within Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino’s 2007 drive-in double feature, Grindhouse, comes out on Sept. 3. And while earlier clips from the movie hyped Lohan as part of a huge — and impressively bizarre — ensemble cast that includes Danny Trejo, Jessica Alba, Robert De Niro, Michelle Rodriguez, Steven Seagal, Cheech Marin, Jeff Fahey, and Don Johnson, the latest teaser is suspiciously Lohan-free.

Let’s compare. Here’s an older version of the trailer, which shows Lohan as a pistol-packing avenger in a nun’s habit:

Now, here’s the latest, Lohan-free version:


Well, maybe. But the snub couldn’t come at a worse time for Lohan, who, let’s face it, doesn’t have a lot else to look forward to this summer. It goes without saying that she (and her fashionably chunky black ankle bracelet) won’t be able to do much to promote the film as it prepares to hit theaters. And it’s totally understandable if they wouldn’t want her at the film’s premiere and press junket anyway since all anyone would want to talk to her about is her newest role behind bars. So, is the latest Machete clip a sad sign of things to come? Will Hollywood want anything to do with Lohan after she’s paid her debt to the California legal system? Or is her career beyond repair — unless we’re talking about playing the lead on Dr. Drew’s Sober House?

    • D-man

      loved him. great to see jeff fahey working.

  • Sarah

    Please, enough about her. There have been way too many articles/blogs about her today. Everything from a song to her handwriting. PLEASE MAKE IT STOP!!!

    • Jenny

      AMEN to that!!!

  • AuntieMM

    I saw this trailer on AOTS and was floored at the cast even without LiLo. This movie is either going to be very good or very bad.

    As for LiLo’s future it’s up to her to finally get her act together. I didn’t see anything in that courtroom that proved that she had either remorse for her actions or respect for the court.

    Forget Lohan, let’s get DeNiro to run for the Oval Office! Now there’s a true, clean, wholesome Republican we can rally around. He’d show that worthless criminal One-Termer what for! President DeNiro wouldn’t destroy our Gulf Coast, our troops, or our nation! BOO-YEAH!

    • Juuuust a little outside

      Off your meds again Sara?

  • Kris

    Shes in like one scene of the original trailer. I would hardly say she was “hyped as a major part of the film” Jessica Alba has more screen time in the trailer.

    • Irina Hoke

      But she had her name in the credits for the trailer, just like all the other players “JESSICA ALBA….LINDSAY LOHAN…MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ” et. Now she is not on the actual trailer, and her name isn’t even shown.

  • Kevin

    After looking at her handwriting…she could try a new career in court reporting.

    • Monty

      naw, it would make it look like everyone in the courtroom is shouting all the time…

  • Irina Hoke

    Come on, it is not a coincidence. The worst part is that in any other normal circumstance, having a cast member in jail would actually help create buzz for a film. Lindsey is so badly regarded in Hollywood, that she is entirely absent from the marketing now…

  • anni

    She was a good child actress but these last few years I don’t think she is that great. Actually when I see her act all I can think about are all her problems and her really bad behavior.

  • Chaz Winterbottom

    Why isn’t she in the newest trailer? I can’t…quite…put…my finger…on it…Oh wait, no! I know why now.

  • Kyle

    FYI, De Niro is actually a Democrat. Hell, he supported that jerk Obama at the 2008 elections.
    And Lindsay is a drunk pathetic whore who got what she deserves, but I am So PSYCHED for this movie.

  • Jackie in Texas

    Irina, Lindsay’s name was in that last trailer at the end. It didn’t show her person but her name is still there.

  • courtney

    im sorry but is obama in this movie? what does this even have to do with him?

    • z

      I don’t know why, maybe any chance they can get to insult the guy.

  • Raven_Moon

    This movie looks awesome.
