'Machete' star Danny Trejo took off his shirt, broke out the blades and accessed his inner tough guy -- a stretch, we're sure -- for a recent photo shoot with Tyler Shields, and the results capture the sort of blood-spattered mayhem only these two amazing characters could dream up.

If Danny looks familiar, it's because he's become one of Hollywood's favorite go-to bad boys, with roles in flicks like 'Desperado' and 'Con Air.' For his latest part, Danny takes the lead in 'Machete,' Robert Rodriquez's action packed, grind house-style film that hits theaters September 3. In it, he's on a mission for revenge alongside an A-list cast that includes Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba, Lindsay Lohan and Electra Avellan, who also participated in the shoot.
