During my recent trip to New York for the BRISK 25 influencer event, I was able to spend some time with actor Danny Trejo, aka Machete, where I was able to grab this short clip with him for Fatlace and even bowled with him and the group. He is a great guy and very humble for the amount of success that he has achieved being featured in hundreds of movies and television shows. During his speech during the conference he was asked a few questions and really opened up about his career and how his life changed after spending time in and out of prison before being “discovered” as an actor. When asked whether he had any problems with being typecasted his response was classic, “No because I AM the mean looking Mexican guy.”

Thanks to BRISK for the opportunity and the memorable trip. If you guys haven’t seen this yet be sure to BRISK YOURSELF on Facebook.
