'From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series' Star Danny Trejo Makes Fierce Transition from 'Razor Charlie' to 'The Regulator'
Known for his roles in Robert Rodriguez's "From Dusk Till Dawn" film franchise as "Razor Charlie" as well as "Machete" and "Machete Kills," Danny Trejo has perfected the art of conjuring characters who are trained to kill.
Yet at the same time, he's also a chameleon for he's starred in kid-friendly films such as the "Spy Kids" movies, as well as the "Muppets Most Wanted." Although Trejo may seem a bit rough around the edges, he's loveable in his own way, still in demand and still fierce as ever.
Trejo is at it again and is starring in his new role as "The Regulator," a horrifying agent of evil who is summoned to perform a deadly errand on El Rey Network's "From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series."
Currently in production in its sophomore season, "From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series" is slated to return late Summer 2015.
"Trejo has had a prolific career in the entertainment industry, yet his road to success has been hard earned and anything but typical, spanning imprisonment to helping young people battle drug addiction, to acting and producing," according to El Rey Network.
Trejo has starred in dozens of films including "Desperado," "Heat," "Con Air," "Once Upon a Time in Mexico," "Grindhouse" and "Dead in Tombstone."
The multi-facted actor has also lent his voice to Director/Illustrator Jorge Gutierrez's animated, Day of the Dead-inspired film "The Book of Life" as Skeleton Luis. He also voiced the characters for Cartoon Network's "Young Justice" and "The High Fructose Adventures of Annoying Orange."
On the small screen, Trejo can be seen as a first series regular role on the FX show "Saint George." He has made an appearance on "NCIS: Los Angeles" and has had recurring roles on "Sons of Anarchy" and "King of the Hill." He has also appeared on episodes of "Franklin and Bash," "Bones," "Modern Family" and "Breaking Bad."
He can currently be seen in the Super Clio Award-winning "Snickers" commercial where he plays the blonde high school student, Marcia Brady, which was enjoyed by millions during the Super Bowl.
El Rey Network's "From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series" stars Jeff Fahey, Esai Morales and Briana Evigan, as well as the returning cast: D.J. Cotrona, Zane Holtz, Jesse Garcia, Eiza González, Wilmer Valderrama, Madison Davenport and Brandon Soo Hoo.
What has unfolded in Season One and Two of El Rey's "From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series?"
According to El Rey Network, Season 1 was "centered on bank robber Seth Gecko (Cotrona) and his violent, unpredictable brother, Richard "Richie" Gecko (Holtz), who were on the run to Mexico when they encountered former pastor Jacob Fuller (Robert Patrick) and his family, who were taken hostage. Using the family RV to cross the border, chaos ensued when the group detoured to the Titty Twister, a strip club populated by culebras, snake-like ancient creatures who survive by drinking human blood. They were forced to fight until dawn in order to get out alive.
"Season Two explores a new chapter in this supernatural crime saga that travels from Mexico to the edgy, tricked-out Texas of Robert Rodriguez. It also deepens and complicates the core relationships between the characters, while adding new faces and new dynamics. Season Two begins with our characters in their separate worlds -- Santanico (Gonzalez) and Richie (Holtz) are outside Houston, living like Bonnie and Clyde; Seth and Kate (Davenport) are scraping by South of the Border; and Freddie Gonzalez (Jessie Garcia) is protecting his wife and young daughter in a Houston suburb. And Carlos Madrigal (Valderrama) and Scott Fuller (Soo-Hoo) emerge from the Titty Twister, changed men. They will all come together once again -- this time facing off against an even bigger threat."
