Danny Trejo

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 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. Over the last 30 years, he has appeared in hundreds of film and TV shows. He has also appeared in such major releases as Desperado (1995), Heat (1995), From Dusk till Dawn (1996), Anaconda (1997), Con Air (1997), Six Days, Seven Nights (1998), The Replacement Killers (1998) Grindhouse (2007), Rob Zombie's Halloween (2007), Urban Justice (2007), Valley of Angels (2008), Machete (2010), Predators (2010), and Range15 (2016).

Trejo recently finished shooting Dead Again In Tombstone, the sequel to Dead In Tombstone, for Universal. Last year he opened the flagship restaurant of Trejo's Tacos in the Mid-Wilshire area in Los Angeles and the second location Trejo's Cantina in the Hollywood area. Danny's newest culinary endeavor, Trejo's Coffee & Donuts is set to open this Spring. Despite Danny's impressive list of credits, it's his continuous roles as a devoted father of three and an intervention counselor that bring him the most satisfaction.
