Danny Trejo and Alexa Vega Interview for “Machete Kills”

Uploaded on Tuesday 8 October 2013


Danny Trejo returns to the world of Machete Cortez in Robert Rodriguez’s new sequel, “Machete Kills.” Jessica Alba (Santana Rivera) and Michelle Rodriguez (Luz) also return for the second time. Joining them are Mel Gibson (Luther Voz), Demian Bichir (Mendez), Amber Heard (Miss San Antonio), Sofia Vergara (Madame Desdemona), Charlie Sheen or Carlos Estevez (President Rathcock), Vanessa Hudgens (Cereza), and Alexa Vega (Killjoy). Playing El Camaleon are Walton Goggins, Cuba Gooding Jr., Lady Gaga, and Antonio Banderas.

Simply put, “Machete Kills” is violently funny and cartoonishly provocative! Much like the first one! This time, our favorite vigilante must work with the U.S. government to take down an intriguing nemesis.

I sat down with Trejo and Vega (yes, the “Spy Kids” girl is all grown-up now!) to talk about the movie (see interview below). Here are some of our highlights:

*** Why return to the world of Machete Cortez?
*** What made Vega want to join the cast?
*** The fantastic and surreal weapons used in the movie
*** Sword fighting with William Wallace aka Mel Gibson
*** Why do actors line up to work with Robert Rodriguez

Have fun!
