Danny Trejo’s had quite a life. Having been in and out of prison during his youth, he turned things around in the ’80s and – at the ripe age of 76 – can count the likes of Con Air, Heat, Sons of Anarchy, Desperado, Breaking Bad, Spy Kids, From Dusk Till Dawn, Predators and the upcoming Minions: The Rise of Gru amongst his staggering list of film and TV credits.
He’s officially the most-killed man in Hollywood, and is no stranger to voice acting in video games, having gained roles in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Fallout: New Vegas and Call of Duty: Black Ops.
Oh, and he’s also a massive Animal Crossing fan, in case you didn’t know.
That’s right – beneath that hard-faced, tattooed exterior you’ll find a person who likes nothing more than tending to his flowerbeds and making sure his island friends are as happy as can be.
Trejo’s such a fan of the game that he’s scheduled to show off his Animal Crossing: New Horizons island on Animal Talking, a live-streamed talk-show hosted by Gary Whitta, ex-video games journalist and screenwriter of The Book of Eli and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Past guests include Cliff Bleszinksi, Tim Schafer and Elijah Wood. Trejo is set to become a regular correspondent on the show, in fact.
What’s your favourite Trejo role? Do you love the character Isador “Machete” Cortez, or do you think he’s underrated as an actor and favour his ‘out of character’ turns in shows like Desperate Housewives and Monk? Perhaps you ignore all of that, and instead prefer to frequent Trejo’s Tacos, his chain of restaurants?
