    i thought id start a thread after fes comments in the "machete" thread

    hes in bare films, main part or cameo.

    i think my favourite Trejo film has to be "Snoop Doggs Hood Of Horror" its only a cameo, he plays a devil tattoo artist

    yeah man.........like him in Once Upon a time in Mexico....proper evil

    and the reason his face is a mess?...........

    A child drug addict and criminal, Danny Trejo was in and out of jail for 11 years. While serving time in San Quentin, he won the lightweight and welterweight boxing titles. Imprisoned for armed robbery and drug offenses, he successfully completed a 12-step rehabilitation program that changed his life. While speaking at a Cocaine Anonymous meeting in 1985, Trejo met a young man who later called him for support. Trejo went to meet him at what turned out to be the set of Runaway Train (1985). Trejo was immediately offered a role as a convict extra, probably because of his tough tattooed appearance. Also on the set was a screenwriter who did time with Trejo in San Quentin. Remembering Trejo's boxing skills, the screenwriter offered him $350 per day to train the actors for a boxing match. Director Andrei Konchalovsky saw Trejo training Eric Roberts and immediately offered him a featured role as Roberts' opponent in the film. Trejo has subsequently appeared in many other films, usually as a tough criminal or villain

    someone should have a side by side comparison of his acting in spy kids and machete's trailer. that'd be funny as hell!
