Murphy will play Mickey Rourke's girlfriend in the film.
The part calls for her to perform a musical number.
Zayas will play the dictator in the film.

Awesome trailer! Would have liked for the Arnold and Bruce reveals to be a surprise, but I understand the marketing behind it to include them in the trailer briefly.

Strange though, they still haven't shown Eric Roberts (except for one still) and Danny Trejo who people knew were in the movie the whole time. I'm cool with the Arnie and Bruce roles being open though, seems like they're borderline cameo level honestly.
