dennis miller plus one who are joined today you know one of those one of those visage is that you immediately clock who it is easy actor entrepreneur danny trejo danny said a long hollywood career i think i read over 300 films. yes that is hard and he's known for his roles in films like heat which is a classic con air also appeared t.v. shows like breaking bad brooklyn $99.00 with andy and sons of anarchy any is a new film ah documentary actually inmate number one the rise of danny trejo which comes out on digital on july 7th we'll get the platforms for you danny welcome nice to have your brother god bless you thank you think show much and that i'm tell you years ago i read a short story by a science fiction writer named harlan ellison he talked about the scariest moment of his life he was in a balcony in new york and he didn't have any place to stay story's watching the film time after time he was broke there was
a guy in the front row who was bitching at a guy behind them and the guy behind him just went whoosh up the grab the guy threw him over the thing it was over like that the suddenness of the violence blew his mind when i was reading notes on you and you were talking about in the in prison that you don't have time for mad that you go just to rage and gave me the same sort of chill man there's no mid air in there right you don't want to get caught fighting right well that's the whole thing is that you truce and the last thing you want to do is get in a fight simply because you get caught and the punishment for getting a fight is the same punishment 1st step in somebody and you need to get away with the stabbing but you can get away with a fight. i got that i when i think about you going in as a young man and and now you're i don't know what 45 to so years sober.
what it what did you why what clicked in your head that allowed you to serve people after coming from that hard to school. you know dentist in 1988 single or my oh everybody think single in my own means 5th of may but but if you're a real mexican like right from your heart siegel in my own means you better get bail money because you're going to jail 'd it just it's just automatic singular mio . spelled backwards is the key to us so you know you're drunk and you're going to do something stupid singular mio 1968 insall a dead. it was alleged that we incited a riot me rape by check or henry and it was also alleged that i hit sergeant givens in the head with a rock lieutenant givens and then. rape but chicken. shocked
a free person enrique at the coach show we went to the hole and basically those are 3 gas chamber offenses that's automatic you know either life or good and so consequently i kind of made a deal that of god let me die with dignity instead yell and scream and visit my parents i would say his name every day and i would you do whatever i can for my fellow man i thought it was just going to be a couple of years in that kill me but god put me in he gave me the rest of my life to live up to that promise and i've i've i've said his name every day i've helped somebody every day or a lot of people every day and he's he's looked his bargain and. i'm living up to mine in fact i asked him a couple of days ago hey god how my doing and he said you're almost out of hell down keep it up you know. so that's why i don't i don't i don't i don't condemn
anybody that doesn't want to help that doesn't want to give they don't know i owe my life. well that's israel a testimony as i can hear and that's condense one minute you hear what a man is right at the brink of his life and isn't it ironic that he to be in solitaire to be alone in the hallway to say and the find the most important presence in your life and that moment invented us that that boggles the mind probably if they have to. and it was and it was real it was a like a joke because when i came out of the hole i went may where i came out of the hole in august. is was completely do i have to start helping people in prison and that that opens you up to wonder ability because all of a sudden you're like a you're like a johnny b. good guy you know you're. triple chair story so i thank god i had enough respect i was lightweight multiway champion of the pan fighting but i was involved in
everything he legal and so i had to switch that you know i judged and a 12 'd step program and i started doing good i started helping my fellow women i started seeing good morning and it's funny but the one dody says good morning especially the bin gentry nobody says how you do. you know how everybody's doing you can get killed because eating get a letter you know whether it's so but you know you don't want to. help speed a bad ass at least they saw you in the squared circle and they said well dad he wants to help me left the scrape i'll let him do it i'll give him a little extra fake it's because i know he's a bad did you then get sober inside the ending yeah yeah that's why so did august 23rd 968 and. i left the whole i mean august 29th and. i was just like i said trying to help trying to do whatever i could and
everybody. you know what they they saw the chains you know i had the bag i had the i had the heroin baby and i gave it away as you know i can't do it i can't do that i still got money but i didn't i didn't deal with. and help people to have to end that kind of stuff but you know i didn't. cut out the drinking in the using then but i didn't cut out some of the dealer selling cigarettes by and so you know as the back and refreeze up and up got a good step by step brother there's a lot of coffee and smokes a 12 step meeting put it that you can. get out a lot of you just can't bring the whole curtain rod like that your own of booze in somebody's although it says a stop smoking here. we're talking to danny trejo i want to talk about the specifics of the documentary inmate number one the rise of danny trejo which is
coming out on streaming pretty soon i'm saying you know when you get on the film sets and there's all that photo drama i mean i've only been around 10 films but i've watched people weiner but you know where's the where's the sag not a bar on the craft service table is that are you kidding this is absolutely crazy do you realize sort of a bad life can get a trifle sort of us maybe make you laugh when you see the drama right. i've been on movie sets it's funny like we go to a movie in the desert right and so ok i tape some 100 in the and i complain about the heat later a minute when you find out you knew were coming to the desert you know it's going to be a lot of years i get my son to work i had a blanket give me takes lay in on it just because you can't get your face damn because maker will get mad if i get a blip i'm getting 10 simply because it's like. we're we're so
blessed to be in this big. that i just heard this is god's favorite kids hear this and your base is going to be on every t.v. set in the world so not do something with it so what do i have to do with it is it's a platform to help kids stay off of drugs to help them get education to help homeless people. to do whatever i can for my film and that's why i'm here and that's what my mom said my macit been a movie star in shape you're you're here for the platform and that then that's it that's what i'm doing right now this is why this is why i'm talking to you you're famous you know you're talking to me we're doing this so people will say hey minutes let's try to stay off the drugs you know let's let's it was funny. i dennis hopper. dennis but i still be as sir you know i used to be
a sponsor we used to. monica and conny brought brought him to me at a meeting at a c.a.a. meeting and and they said to it we want you to meet denny's rigs he could help you shot did a certain i mean your dentist heard my pits and afterwards he looked at me and says man i mean like if you can stay clean anybody can stay clean up. and i. yeah i guess i think but he stayed could we we see that he was a clipper slant you know i mean we would go to clippers game nobody in the stands this was like clippers 1st cabe l.a. you know 8 people in the stands a dennis this is embarrassing to judge of the end and so well it's so we got we got clean he got clean and it was just awesome to be around somebody that stays clean but when he said that i realized wait
a minute maybe my story can help some kid that's on the same path go on the only way. and. we've had a we there's like a lot a lot of success thank god you know right now work and me and mario christie oh or working with the lifers because we got a bill passed that let's do when i was kids that were sentences juveniles that got life in prison can now come up for parole because you're a different man at 17 you're a different man as for him so we've got we've got guys that went into prison 4550 years old and they went in when they were 17 minute cousin gilbert he went in when he was 17 he got out when he was 55 years old a completely different way right now he is actually the electrician for the. the new ram stadium. you know. that's great so you don't you don't need anyone so it's
so ironic to me the way the life turns out sometimes if when you look at you and in your roles much at the end that what a bad you come off as and to think what a nice feeling must be for you and your mom i mean you madge and her heart uli and when you turn out to be the angel on the horizon for somebody faithful you know it's like the vet saying you know it's really thrilling the thought that it's the human condition all balled up in one chapter i want to talk to more about the specifics of it you can talk all you want but to see this documentary folks i think you've got to take a deeper dive on this inmate number one the rise of danny trejo my son tells me makes a hell of a taco so this we got to talk a lot of i don't agree it's their nature anyhow you let me see them let me see the . that's dixie. chicks you know it's going to convey the. you know what danny we're going to now got her after
a dental benefits by putting her on t.v. she could not apply for health care program. gets right after the break that is miller plus what you. saw ruses newsrooms he's in a suit she's going to be named crazy isn't on the. number you. know him of those he's just going to the ability to continue to show that. antarctica is a very international community it. be used to the cruiser to.
listen to the sorry says he believes. there's a push for some of the wood to disprove that the resistance of their new cars to comparison is on top to go is everything because who's polluted with the for them to do with the bullshit in the above the. flood they have that was affected all thanks but i decided not to take physics like. this and i can tell you that. hey folks welcome back to dennis miller plus one and we're joined by danny trejo and dixie over there we met i think that's another coach in a background maybe looks like coach central over there baby yeah. it's like a magnet guard at the cherry house i read the story you know it's why it's so odd that he the way that your career happens because that's one of my favorite all
movies i'm a big joy and jon voight fan that i had that movie out of that would be a runaway train and that's that's where you tap in and it's so inadvertent right tell us that great story about your 1st you're all set of a movie called runaway train i run into a guy named eddie bunker eddie bunker was famous in prison because he used to write ritz and ritz have to be grammatically correct in the language of the quarter or they can kick him out you link him a misspelling they can get him up and so he would reach your transcript he charge $100.00 to regis transcript and then and then it would be 100 dollars for each game up with every transcript had to rip because police makes mistakes d.a.'s make mistakes and and so. people would pay so he got $1.00 thing and oh and. i ran into him and i did he what do you do when he says i wrote i wrote the
screenplay adapted to screenplay i didn't know that but i want to do is a 50 bucks they were given as an extra and. and from there. he said he still boxing and he saw me when the light when the world were tied up and sank when i did not know in a box no 140 years old he said we need somebody to train one of the actors how to box as well i still train how much does it pay and he said $320.00 a day i said how did you want to be you know you could keep one. or the other one if you were you know i thought he was pissed at somebody and i wanted to hear. a guy up your response i'm sorry and and i want to get to beat him up every day and and. and so i sed he said normally i'd be careful this actor might suck you i said but eddie for 320 bucks give him
a stick are you crazy i didn't either for. a story train at eric roberts how to box for the movie runaway train and they had another guy. to fight eric in this movie but the director under a cudgel of a ski very soft spoken russian shaunie. and the other guy was was this was kind of this pretty 0 you know in show america pretty as a sister so they were like they were like 30 guys fighting in japan. doesn't look right defeat exactly tightened it up that so so. under a can't see in contrast contrast like i was there it was pretty i was mean look at you know so so i got i got hired to fight eric in this movie that gave me a ton hartley that gave me. that gave me everything i was all of
a sudden. an actor i went from being a you to mr trail and asking me if i wanted coffee you know yes and doing my hair i got to wear makeup and nobody left you know i mean i did good work make up and show me an area of a segment for trail had a trailer there you know that you were they were out of their ideal agate in their own trailer it's a good i dress i did the 1st day i dressed in my car and eddie saw music what do you do it as a good dress or look i'm a i'm a i'm an actor and then you got a trader so wove you after that i got a picture of me going. up my name. eddie eddie thought he was having trouble get as money inside i collected your your net points and hollywood that's what he really knew you could get scripts but it's more. that what i got paid i
mean so much money i thought they made a mistake guinness you know me so i was running to the bank to cash it before they realized and it is comes with a good many homes so why has it. paid for i had a meal penalty you know. and they gave me money for that you know and so on in the later will i didn't know but oh t.o.t.n. and and and golden time i know about all that and we were working like 1617 hours every day so every day it just doubled i couldn't believe i got more i got paid more money than i ever made in a robbery ever made in a drug deal ever than i ever made and i won't i want to be a better folks and you know about arjen this documentary i am so all over this i got i got asked right now before i forget inmate number one the rise of debt ha ha
just this 20 minutes i've talked to the cat i don't think it this is one of the all time great sales what is it coming dad what won't work oh if i want every lie 7 it will be out and i'm so proud of what they did and i really believe that we're going to use this as f's as a deterrent in schools and of course bill shorten the pin and juvenile hall you know because it's not so much where you start it's where you are in and it is more about redemption then than glorifying anything you 1st used heroin when you were 12 years old. my uncle gilbert to me on the grass when i was 8 and don't condemn him for that please i wish it was like you know when i speak in schools and i say my uncle. term yawn to weed at 8 and the kids aren't pages ok and the more i say that to a doctor whom oh my god but everybody knows if somebody is smoking marijuana in
your family they're trying to turn everybody on whether the 891011 years old so that's what you've got to watch out for don't be surprised because that's what's going on i you know i can go down so you 8910 year old kids right now that if they're not smoking weed they're sniffing glue so it's like wait a minute we've we don't need we have a big war on drugs no it's a big war on drug addicts you know we need help you know not not and steel bar therapy doesn't work wouldn't kids in june all doesn't work sending kids to life in prison doesn't work you know it's like there's got to be something else . i think i think that what do they say there's a 10 percent of the people in prison along in prison the rest of the people could be surface somewhere else and i think addiction that's a disease i do not think that is
a crime and whatever you do as an addict it's because you're an addict not because you're bad at you know i did robberies because i needed money because i was i was sick and and everything i did i did as a. means a ways and means to get more drugs i would never steal from my mom or my dad man not if i wasn't you not if i didn't you have a sickness. you know and so is your effort to get out of prison wish with your heart so hardened where you were you incapable like receiving good feelings from people or it you already got a 1st step up from being an star and asking god to come into your life and where you are stopped and want more than that i'm tired i would the day i got out i got out on a saturday sunday i was 10 hours from my mom's trying to think all k. now how do i be dudley do right here and wonder now everybody was scared of me and
my mom's neighbor they were petrified of the robber outside the minister in the lead and i think it ok or i do and i seen this lady dragging out her trash can this was 1969 and she was dragged because in 69 you didn't have the big kind of roll away trash cans you had you put everything in a tub and drug it out and then the guy would dump it and i seen are dragging it out and i want to help or i that's what i do i want to help her and she says let me draw was didn't don't rob me death of the chatter. grabbed her ass and pulled it out and then i seen she had another one and i went got it the lady never took her eyes off me because she knew i was going to break her garage and steal so and i didn't i grabbed the trash can i put it and she was a fake and used them if you couldn't you didn't know what happened and that's why i started doing i started picking out my mom's neighbor's trash on sundays because
the trash men came on mondays you know the old people not you that's all i did the 1st present i ever got was a suede fake suede. leather jacket and it was like a blazer double breast beautiful they were very popular in the city 169 fix way to school and. and i guess that was what i did so it wasn't that i was hard and i was kind of trying to figure out how to be nice how to be good thanks joe got me involved in a program called grip which was recovery independence and freedom and it was all these little kids that were kind of well off that had gotten sent here by the court instead of going to juvenile hall. so the minute i walked in they were up and i started talking about going to prison all of them had court dates so they want to
hear you know they want to hear what was going on so god put me right in the right spot i got some friends from that time that were in that program that. that is to clean your room if. you're still cooking what. i know it's a documentary what's coming out air on july 7th danny there inmate number one the rise of danny child but i still got this reads like great fiction i know it's your life but i'm telling you this could be such a movie i mean all the all the anti-heroes you've played are the arrows you've played playing yourself would certainly be the most textured character you'd ever be offered and i am a standout and my son tells me tell me but this tray has tacos. i hear that the food is nice yeah to go national with aside from the delicious we're i didn't
