Danny Trejo net worth and salary: Danny Trejo is a well-know film and television actor who has a net worth of $16 million. Danny Trejo has earned his net worth through appearing in numerous roles that are often hyper-masculine, villainous, and anti-heroes. Some of the roles he is best known for include Heat, Con Air, Machete, Desperado and Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. He was born on May 16, 1944 in Echo Park, a neighborhood of Los Angeles. Throughout the 1960's Trejo was in and out of prison. While serving time in San Quentin, he became a champion boxer in lightweight and welterweight divisions within the prison. He also joined a twelve-step program that he credits for helping him to overcome his drug addiction; as of 2011, he was 42 years sober. While attending a recovery meeting, he met a man who used to work in the movie business and was invited to the set of Runaway Train. While on the set, he was offered a job as an extra in the film's prison scenes. His career catapulted from there, and he became well known for his distinctive appearance, which often typecast as a rugged, thuggish character, although recently he has also appeared in more sympathetic roles like in Season 2 of Desperate Housewives when Carlos sent his character to help Gabrielle deal with the grief of losing her unborn baby. In 2005, an award-winning independent film called Champion was made to document Trejo's life. The film featured Dennis Hopper, Val Kilmer, Steve Buscemi, and Robert Rodriguez.
