George Lopez’s FX Comedy Series Adds ‘Machete’s’ Danny Trejo

Danny Trejo is "Machete" (Fox)

By Zach Dionne

“Machete” star Danny Trejo, who was recently nothing less than excellent in a guest spot on Marc Maron’s IFC comedy, is heading to George Lopez’s FX (well, FXX, probably) comedy Saint George. Trejo’s series-regular role will see him play Lopez’s uncle. “In many ways, Tio is like a savant or Shakespeare’s fool — despite a convoluted thought process and many quirks, Tio speaks the truth and holds a mirror up to George.” The series has a ten-episode order that could be followed by an order for another 90 episodes, Charlie Sheen/”Anger Management”-style.
