By Lee Hernandez | 02/22/2011 - 16:33

Robert Rodriguez's latest film might be his shortest one yet. The Machete director recently directed a short film called, The Black Mamba for Nike Basketball that stars Kobe Bryant as The Black Mamba--a gritty hero who utilizes fundamental basketball skills to dispose of villains such as The Crippler (Danny Trejo), Mister Suave (Bruce Willis) and The Boss (Kanye West).

Danny Trejo has been in nearly 200 movies, his latest being Machete, which opens this week and marks his ninth collaboration with director (and distant cousin) Robert Rodriguez. But as ubiquitous as the Mexican American’s fearsome face and physique is, there is still a lot most people don’t know about the real Danny. Here are some of the most surprising bits:

Robert Rodriguez on 'Machete': "The movie makes Latinos look more badass than ever before"
By Damarys Ocaña Perez | 08/31/2010 - 14:00

After producing this summer’s Predators reboot, bad boy Texican filmmaker Robert Rodriguez is back with Machete, starring tough-guy Danny Trejo as a double-crossed ex-Mexican federale. With Rodriguez’s trademark over-the-top violence and butt-kicking chicks and its "We-didn’t-cross-the-border; the-border-crossed-us" take on the immigration issue, the movie is bound to create controversy. When we spoke to Rodriguez, though, he insisted it was all in the name of giving moviegoers a much needed good time.

The Best Latin Big Screen Bad Guys
By Damarys Ocaña Perez | 07/19/2010 - 10:30

Alfred Molina is back to being bad! The half Spanish, half British actor, who memorably used creepy mechanical appendages to destroy half of New York City as mad Doc Ock in Spiderman 2, plays another villain in The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, which opened over the weekend. As Maxim Horvath, Molina is a dark magician who wants to destroy New York City (hmm, we're sensing a theme here). It’s a perversely fun performance and it made us think of the many memorable villains played by Latinos onscreen.
