Danny Trejo Talks Machete and More!

22 December 2010 11:29 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

His face is instantly recognizable. His deft portrayals of characters both noble and ignoble have elevated him from “that guy with the tattoos” status to a bankable commodity.

The parts he’s played are just as memorable as he is: the knife-wielding Navajas from Desperado, the toothy vampire bartender Razor Charlie from From Dusk Till Dawn, Johnny “Johnny-23” Baca from Con Air, Machete from the Spy Kids series, the lovable biker Slim from Bubble Boy, the “Mexican/Mexican’t” Cucuy from Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Rondo from The Devil's Rejects, Cuchillo from Predators, and now … the illustrious Machete. His name is Danny Trejo, and while you may not know his name, you definitely know his face.

Director Robert Rodriguez – a longtime supporter of Danny’s – turned what might have been a gag trailer for a lost biker revenge film into a media and cultural juggernaut. Machete, made for roughly $10 million, »

Web exclusive! All the celeb lists we couldn't fit in the mag

17 December 2010 9:25 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

From Professor Green's top 10 service stations to Richard Herring's greatest annoyances, here are the lists we couldn't squeeze into tomorrow's Guide magazine (on sale Saturday in all good newsagents and out-of-town shopping behemoths)

Professor Green's top 10 motorway service stations

1 Moto Toddington Services (M1)

The first one we pass when leaving London but also the one that means we're close to home. This is also DJ Iq's favourite service station by a country mile.

2 Extra Msa Cambridge Services (A14)

McDonalds, KFC, Pizza Hut and M&S. The food connoisseur's choice of service station.

3 Moto Thurrock Services (M25)

M&S plus a WHSmith so we can grab Nuts magazine and the Daily Sport.

4 Welcome Break Birchanger Green Services (M11)

KFC and a Waitrose. A Zinger followed by a portion of fruit. The best of both.

5 Welcome Break Newport Pagnell Services (M1)

Post Mobos. Ed Drewett, a bottle of Cava and a teaspoon. »

Video: Jessica Alba naked shower scene from Machete

6 December 2010 4:36 PM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

Sex sells and, with that in mind, Sony Pictures Releasing has sent over a full-length video clip of the Jessica Alba shower scene from action film Machete.

You can admire Ms Alba in the clip below.

Machete stars Danny Trejo as the title character, a legendary ex-Federale who carries 44 blades in his custom-made leather vest.

Jessica Alba plays Sartana, a beautiful immigrations officer torn between enforcing the law and doing what is right.

Directed by Robert Rodriguez, the film also features Steven Seagal, Michelle Rodriguez, Jeff Fahey, Cheech Marin, Lindsay Lohan, Miami Vice star Don Johnson and Robert De Niro.

Rodriguez first conceived the idea in the early 90s and went on to include a fake trailer with Grindhouse. The clip generated such a huge amount of interest that Rodriguez finally decided he had to make the full film. It was released in the UK on November 26.

4 December 2010 4:38 AM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

From Abrams ComicArts and The Manda Group, Sneak Peek author Jim Trombetta's scholarly "The Horror! The Horror! Comic Books the Government Didn't Want You To Read!", a 304-page anthology, featuring more than 200 rare covers and 1950's era comic book stories, illustrating 'horror' and 'crime' genres.

Trombetta, formerly an episodic writer for the 1980's TV series "Miami Vice", provides a detailed history for these stories and their creators, with his researched commentary and fascinating subtext, spinning a tale of horror and government censorship as scary as the stories themselves.

Artists featured include Johnny Craig, Reed Crandall, Jack Davis, Steve Ditko, Al Feldstein, Frank Kelly Freas, Russ Heath, Graham Ingels, Alex Toth, Wally Wood and Basil Wolverton.

Before the comic book industry's self-regulated 'Comic Books Code Authority' in the 1950's, companies would publish exploitation comic books, targeting readers (mainly kids) with lurid covers and interior art.

Themes showcased included "...gruesome depictions of murder, »

Angela Bassett to star in ABC cop drama

18 November 2010 8:12 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Angela Bassett will topline the ABC pilot One Police Plaza, Variety reports. She’ll play the first female New York police commissioner. (Perhaps she inherited the job from Blue BloodsTom Selleck?)

Johnson Payout To Come From 2929 Entertainment

5 October 2010 12:01 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The billionaire businessmen behind 2929 Entertainment have been ordered to cover part of the $51.7 million (£34.4 million) pay out owed to actor Don Johnson in his battle with TV bosses over his 1990s show Nash Bridges.

The Miami Vice star was awarded $23.2 million (£15.4 million) in July after successfully suing executives at production company Rysher Entertainment, Inc., claiming he was owed 50 per cent of the profits from the show because he owned half of the cop drama's copyright.

He was handed a further $28.5 million (£19 million) in interest in September but it was unclear who was responsible for picking up the bill because of Rysher's change of ownership - it was an asset of 2929 from 2001 to 2006 before being taken over by investment firm Qualia Capital.

The case returned to court last week, when Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Stern ruled Mark Cuban and Todd Wagner's 2929 Entertainment should pay the huge sum, along with the bosses of Rysher Entertainment and Qualia.

In a statement released after the ruling, Johnson says, "Nash Bridges was my idea. Mark Cuban's company and Qualia took all the profits from the show's syndication. I feel vindicated that Rysher, 2929 Entertainment and Qualia are all being held responsible." »

Johnson Surprises Oprah With Belated Show Appearance

13 September 2010 6:36 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Former Miami Vice star Don Johnson stunned Oprah Winfrey on the premiere episode of the 25th and final season of talk show Oprah by returning her rhinestone sunglasses.

Winfrey sent Johnson her favourite accessories in a bid to persuade him to become her first guest when the show started in 1986, but he turned her down - prompting her to come up with the idea of making her show all about normal people, not just celebrities.

On Monday the talk show queen told her audience, "They were all the rage and they cost a fortune..." as Johnson stepped out onstage to surprise her.

He joked, "I know it has taken me about 24 years to get these back to you... For clarity, I was shooting 18-20 hours a day at the time and it's not that I didn't wanna come, they (producers) wouldn't let me come. But I understand things have been going Ok for you... You're the greatest."

Johnson wasn't the only star guest on the premiere show - John Travolta waltzed Oprah out at the beginning of the programme and then helped the host announce a surprise Australia trip for her audience members, while one of her favourite singers, Paul Simon, closed the first of her farewell shows by revamping a song he wrote for Winfrey's 10th season. »

Johnson's Nash Bridges Award Doubles

9 September 2010 1:07 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Don Johnson has spoken of his "sense of vindication" after a judge granted him a further $28 million (£18.7 million) in a battle with TV bosses over his 1990s show Nash Bridges.

The actor was awarded $23.2 million (£15.4 million) in July after successfully suing bosses at production company Rysher Entertainment, Inc., claiming he was owed 50 per cent of the profits from the show because he owned half of the cop drama's copyright.

And on Wednesday he was victorious again - Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Stern ruled that Johnson is due more than $28 million (£18.7 million) in interest.

Johnson, who played a San Francisco cop in the hit show, is pleased his rights have been acknowledged.

He says in a statement: "Nash Bridges was my project, and I poured my heart into it. I feel a sense of vindication and sincere gratitude that both the jury and Judge Stern continue to agree with me."

The Miami Vice star had previously asked for a $100 million (£66.6 million) settlement, claiming TV bosses earned more than $300 million (£200 million) in revenue and more than $150 million (£100 million) from syndication.

Lawyers for Rysher claim the initial jury verdict will be appealed, reports the Associated Press. »

Last week's box office race came down to the wire with Takers and The Last Exorcism both fighting it out for number one.

Now with three highly anticipated new movies opening this Labor Day weekend, including director Robert Rodriguez's Machete, Going the Distance starring Drew Barrymore, and The American with Oscar winner George Clooney, it was inevitable that we would have a new box office champ.

Alexis Petridis: No chic, Sherlock | Men's fashion

3 September 2010 4:03 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Well, if it worked for Benedict Cumberbatch, who is to say it won't work for the rest of us: the Sherlock look is here to stay (for a while)

One of the differences between Us and British detective dramas is that the latter never influence men's fashion. No sooner had the opening credits rolled on the first episode of Miami Vice than the nation's suburban lotharios hastened as one to Burton's as if to prove that a pastel jacket and slip-on loafers looked every bit as striking on a portly middle-aged man in the Arndale Centre as they did on Don Johnson cruising down Ocean Drive, just in a very different way. Nothing equivalent happened with Bergerac or A Touch Of Frost. Somehow the nation's suburban loatharios seem capable of sitting through Midsomer Murders (an impressive feat of endurance in itself) without rushing to Burton's for the full Dci Barnaby. »

It was a race to the finish line last week, as two new movies fought it out for number one at the box office.

But as of Monday morning, the clear winner for the weekend was the action-filled drama Takers, which earned $20.5 million. Both films will have their work cut out for them this weekend with three more new movies entering the box office charts, including director Robert Rodriguez's Machete, Going the Distance starring Drew Barrymore, and The American with Oscar winner George Clooney.
