Danny Trejo, well-known actor from films such as Machete and Desperado, discusses his amazing 46 years of sobriety. After prison and substance abuse since childhood, Mr. Trejo found sobriety and became a drug counselor before becoming an actor.
He has played many "bad guys," such as Tortuga in Breaking Bad. But when playing a drug dealer or killer, he makes the poignant comment that "the bad guy dies." He encourages young people to realize this, and to "play for the right team." He says, "There are those that want to make a difference, and those that just take up space."
Among his upcoming movies is "Machete Kills Again... In Space." We look forward to seeing his badness on the big screen and his philanthropy in real life.
Danny Trejo will be speaking at Los Angeles County's Al-impics, which will take place on May 30.
