  1. Wow, 5’6″. I had no idea.

  2. Really liked Trejo him in Heat. I’ll never forget his dying words in that movie…. “Waingro”.

    It sounds a strange one to point out, but I liked the small role he played in the remake of “Halloween”, which was a complete departure from his usual badass role. It was nice to see that he had some range.

    • Speaking of range, he’s allegedly in a deleted scene from the latest Muppet movie. I think/assume it’ll be on the DVD. I can’t wait to see that.

    • You want a departure? Check out Sherrybaby with Maggie Gyllenhaal. I don’t know if I will ever get the image of Danny Trejo cooking out of my head. 😉 But seriously, it’s a totally different character for him, which was nice for a change. Not the greatest flick, but well-acted at the least.

      Count me amongst the many shocked by his tiny stature.

    No doubt, Trejo is a badass. But, Pam Grier is the baddest of them all.

  5. I was music editor for an indie movie in 2008 called “Jake’s Corner” where Trejo played a gentle-hearted drunk.

  6. Did you watch that trailer for his new movie, Bad Ass? The preview just got released today and it’s so C-movie bad that it’s hilarious 😀

  7. Your infographic brings up all the intangible reasons why we love that bonafide badass…and why, as you all have written above, he’ll be in the movie of the same name:P Well played John!

  8. Love him in SOA. Awesome casting.

  9. hello, john,

    i remember his face from a couple of movies. thanks for disclosing his name. ^_^
