In 2012 the second of the series --Machete Kills--wrapped production in July, with Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba, Amber Heard, Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen, and Lady GaGa in her first feature film role. It promises to be an even more exciting ride.
In addition to having worked with nearly every star in Hollywood, and many great directors, Trejo is a hero to the Latino community world-wide, having started out on the streets of Pacoima in Los Angeles and overcome a childhood of crime, drug-addiction and prison. Trejo was in and out of jail for 11 years and while serving time in San Quentin, Folsom and Soledad, won the lightweight and welterweight boxing titles of all three prisons. Imprisoned for armed robbery and drug offenses, he found his way to a 12-Step program that changed his life.
