Danny Trejo Interview DEATH RACE 2 slice

With Paul W.S. Anderson’s 2008 remake of Death Race having success at the worldwide box office and on home video, Universal decided to make a prequel and they’re releasing it this week under the banner of “DVD Originals from Universal Studios Home Entertainment Productions.”  While the remake starred Jason Statham as Jensen Ames, the prequel stars  Luke Goss, Sean Bean, Tanit Phoenix, and Danny Trejo.  The film is an origin story for the character of Frankenstein.

Anyway, I recently got to speak with most of the cast and after the jump you can watch my interview with Danny Trejo.  In Death Race 2, Trejo plays a Mexican Jew mechanic named Goldberg.  During the interview we talked about how he prepares as an actor, what films do people always want to talk to him about, was he upset he didn’t get to kick a lot of ass in Death Race 2, future projects like Spy Kids 4, Machete sequels and Harold and Kumar 3 (A Very Harold And Kumar Christmas), and a lot more.  Hit the jump to watch:
