Danny Trejo Calls Out Tom Cruise For Reckless Stuntwork

Somebody check Danny Trejo‘s Thetan levels — he’s acting like a very suppressive person lately!

Superstar actor Danny Trejo is in danger of disconnection. Trejo criticized Tom Cruise in a Facebook Live interview as reported by Yahoo! Movies. In the interview, Trejo had some strong words for actors who perform their own stunts, putting the jobs of a film’s cast and crew at risk.

“I know that all the big stars hate me to say this, but I don’t want to risk 80 people’s jobs just to say I got big huevos on The Tonight Show,” Trejo responded when asked if he still does many stunts at age. “Because that’s what happens. I think a big star just sprained an ankle doing a stunt, and 80 or 180 people are out of a job.”

Trejo is referring to Cruise’s recent injury, which shut down production on Mission Impossible 6 for three months, presumably while his ankle is audited.

“We got stunt guys to do that stuff,” Trejo continued. “If they get hurt, sorry to say, you gotta put a mustache on another Mexican and we can keep going. But if I get hurt, everyone is out of a job.”

“I didn’t say his name,” Trejo said when the interviewer brought up Cruise. “But now he can get on the tonight show and say, ‘I got big huevos.'”

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
