Inmate To Action Star: The Amazing Life Of Danny Trejo (Video)

Nice video summation of the life of an actor who went from the guy you kinda recognize to the accomplished action star you betta reckonize! Thing is, that acting gig turned big came after a prison bid and a f**ked up life before. So glad Danny Trejo pushed through. Seems like a great dude. Which is awesome! With all the movies and commercials (and Trejo’s Tacos restaurant, watch), it would suck if he turned into a Hollywood jerk after being enriched by such humbling experiences.

‘Inmate #1: The Rise of Danny Trejo’ Documentary Covers His Rise From Prison To Hollywood

The video above is not the trailer for actor Danny Trejo’s upcoming documentary, but its interesting to provide you all an appetizer for the upcoming documentary ‘Inmate #1: The Rise of Danny Trejo’. There was another documentary on Danny Trejo called “Champion” that we posted the trailer to after the jump.

“The big screen tough guy is currently in production on Inmate #1: The Rise of Danny Trejo, a documentary that will chronicle his life and career — from his early days on the streets that led him to prison, to getting clean and working with directors like Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez and appearing in films such as Heat, Con Air and Machete.

Today, Danny Trejo is temperate, benevolent and likely one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet. But he wasn’t always this way”, says producer Adam Scorgie in a statement. “Growing up in the mean streets of Pacoima, California, he was raised and mentored by his uncle, a drug addict and armed robber. By the age of 12, he had tried heroin. By age 15, he was introduced to his first jail cell. At 23, he was sentenced to San Quentin for selling a $30,000 bag of heroin to an undercover agent.”

Inmate #1: The Rise of Danny Trejo is expected to be released in 2018.
