Shoot for the Moon
Actor Danny Trejo has made a film career out of playing criminals. Before that, he made a career out of being one. In town to shoot Robert Rodriguez's Spy Kids, Trejo visited Travis High School to talk to students about the lessons he learned the hard way.

A Career Hooligan Looks Back, But Mostly Forward
Robert Rodriguez on a lifetime of innovation and the movie, 'El Mariachi,' that started it all
Screens Story  August 24, 2012, by Marc Savlov
"...Danny Trejo, actor, Machete, Machete Kills, etc.: "I love making movies, but there have been some movies that I've worked on that have really been a job, you know? The director's in a bad mood, the makeup people aren't happy, maybe the film is having financial problems, and they brought all this stuff to work with them, so there's just tension, tension, tension. On Robert's movies, man, you talk about loving your job! You might be working 15-hour days, you might be exhausted, but it's all good because you're loving what you do..."

Violent Ends
Fifteen years after first inception, Machete hacks its way into theatres
Screens Story  September 3, 2010, by Marc Savlov
"...Nine years after Robert Rodriguez first tagged Danny Trejo with the Machete moniker in Spy Kids and three years since the actual character made his outlandishly kickass debut in a Grindhouse faux film trailer, Machete – about a Mexican federale-turned-vendetta-happy avenger – is finally arriving to blow minds and burn down theatres for real. Co-directed with longtime Troublemaker editor Ethan Maniquis, Rodriguez's incendiary nod to his self-created "Mexploitation" genre is bristling with blacker-than-hell gallows humor (check out that gutsy "red band" rated-R trailer!), enough edged weaponry to restage the conquistadors' entire bloody history, and, yep, Robert De Niro as the senator..."
