Personal Quote:

[on Tom Cruise breaking his ankle on the new Mission Impossible movie causing production to be delayed]I know that all the big stars hate me to say this, but I don't want to risk 80 peoples' jobs just to say I got big "eggs" on The Tonight Show. Because that's what happens. I think a big star just sprained an ankle doing a stunt, and 80 or 180 people are out of a job. See more »

Trivia:

Trejo spent much of the 1960s in California prisons--Tracy (1963-1965), San Quentin (1965-1968), Soledad (1968-1969). See more »

Trademark:
