* SociallyAwkwardHero: According to Creator/SalmaHayek on ''Series/TheGrahamNortonShow, during the filming of ''From Dusk Til Dawn'' she was told that Danny was a bit anxious but when he first saw her. He ran to her, ripped open his shirt and showed her his tattoo of a woman wearing a sombrero and proclaimed "I knew you before I knew you, I dreamt you before I knew you". He also said that while he was happy that he had left jail, he'd happily rob another bank for her.

He's the kind of guy everyone can recognize, but not as many can name. He's been working in Hollywood since 1985 and has played dozens of supporting roles, usually as some kind of Mexican tough guy, [[{{Mook}} henchman]] or thug. Trejo has also been in a number of Creator/RobertRodriguez films, usually with slightly larger roles than he normally plays, including ''Film/{{Desperado}}'' and the ''Film/SpyKids'' trilogy, finally culminating in his first leading role: the badass KnifeNut known as Film/{{Machete}}. As an InkSuitActor, he was Dale's "Man Friday", Octavio on ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' and, in a bit of PlayingAgainstType, he voiced Enrique (the sad-sack bobtail driver from Strickland propane who wants to be Hank's friend).

* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: Plays rough and cruel characters, but is widely reputed as one of the friendliest actors in Hollywood and a blast to work with. The Creator/AnimalPlanet documentary ''Series/PitbullsAndParolees'' also reveals that he helps out at the Villalobos Pitbull Shelter, since he lives down the street, and they even named a dog after him. He also visits colleges throughout the USA using his credibility as a former drug addict and convict to impress on teens that drugs and crime are not fun in real life and getting an education and staying out of trouble is the way to go.

* ''SugarWiki/RuleOfSeanConnery'': Almost anything can be improved by his presence.
