Danny Trejo has developed a prolific career in the entertainment industry with a hard-earned and atypical road to success. From years of imprisonment to helping troubled youth battle drug addictions, from acting to producing, and now on to restaurant ventures, Trejo’s name, face, and achievements are well recognized in Hollywood and beyond.
Trejo has starred in dozens of films including DESPERADO, HEAT, the FROM DUSK TILL DAWN series, CON AIR, ONCE UPON A TIME IN MEXICO, the SPY KIDS movies, MACHETE and MACHETE KILLS, the BAD ASS trilogy, DEAD AGAIN IN TOMBSTONE and co-starred in DEATH RACE 2, DEATH RACE: INFERNO and MUPPETS MOST WANTED.
On the television side, Trejo will host the upcoming second season of El Rey’s Man at Arms. He has also appeared on The Flash, Modern Family, Breaking Bad, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and NCIS: Los Angeles among others. Additionally, Trejo voices characters in the animated films STORKS and THE BOOK OF LIFE, along with the animated series American Dad!, Rick and Morty, Puss in Boots, Young Justice and Family Guy. He recently collaborated with Jam City and Family Guy on the new app “Family Guy: Another Freakin’ Mobile Game.”
Trejo recently finished shooting the horror comedy THE HOUSE NEXT DOOR, starring Mikey Epps and Kat Williams. And if you didn’t think he was busy enough, after the success of last year’s openings of the flagship restaurant Trejo’s Tacos in the Mid-Wilshire area and Trejo’s Cantina in Hollywood, he opened two new locations in Woodland Hills and USC village. Danny’s newest culinary endeavor, Trejo’s Coffee & Donuts, is proving to be just as successful as his restaurants.
Despite Danny’s impressive list of credits, it is his continuous role as a devoted father of three and an intervention counselor that bring him the most satisfaction.
