Danny Trejo is one bad mofo, and he has the scars, both inside and out, to prove it. Trejo is one of today’s most recognizable faces and philanthropic activists in Hollywood. He even has his own taco brand. It’s pretty amazing to think about, since if you look back at his life, there wasn’t a lot to support the notion that young Danny would one day be a Hollywood star. But underneath it all, there were plenty of signs that he was not your average person. And he was definitely not your average kid growing up in Pacoima.
Trejo’s life is a life to be reflected – and that’s exactly what Danny does in the new documentary entitled Inmate #1: The Rise of Danny Trejo.
The feature documentary experience revealing the extraordinary journey of Hollywood’s most unlikely hero—Danny Trejo—will be available via digital streaming platforms in the USA on July 7. This film gives viewers a raw and inspirational account of Trejo’s unbelievable transformation from hardened criminal to celebrated movie icon and beloved friend of all who cross his path.
Below is our interview with Danny where we discuss the documentary, his life, and his potential future (I couldn’t help but pitch him a business idea).
