Creator: Danny Trejo
Oh yeah, him!

"You might know him from Desperado, Grindhouse, The Devils Rejects, xXx, Con Air, Heat, your worst nightmares."

Danny Trejo (born May 16, 1944) is an American actor that everyone can recognize, but not as many can name. When you see him, you tend to think, "Hey, It's That Guy!" He's been working in Hollywood since 1985 and has played dozens of supporting roles, usually as some kind of Mexican tough guy, henchman or thug. Trejo has also been in a number of Robert Rodriguez films, usually with slightly larger roles than he normally plays, including Desperado and the Spy Kids trilogy, finally culminating in his first leading role: the badass Knife Nut known as Machete. As an Ink-Suit Actor, he was Dale's "Man Friday", Octavio on King of the Hill.

He had criminal problems during his youth and spent time in jail, but the accounts of everybody he works with in the movies (Everyone) is that he is one of the best people in the industry. The cameo heavy and varied cast of Machete stems from all the people he worked with in the past wanting to contribute something to his first starring role.
