Danny Trejo talks ‘Muppets Most Wanted,’ losing his Mom and Kermit consoling him

Actor Danny Trejo had a cameo cut from The Muppets, but will make the final cut in the sequel The Muppets Most Wanted.

Danny Trejo Muppets Most WantedThe Machete star discusses the role, tragedy and not believing this is real during his Mar. 14 interview with Collider.

“I never imagined that I’d be out of prison.  I worked with all of the Muppets.  It was amazing!  I was acting next to puppets!  In 30 seconds, you’re having a full-on conversation with a puppet on a hand.  The guys are great that do it.”
 
Trejo was promoting his role on the new show with George Lopez, but recounts this production as a difficult time in his life.
 
“My mom passed away while I was in London shooting the movie, and I was a momma’s boy, so it really hit me.  My secretary called me and said, “Don’t worry, you don’t have to come home.  We’re already taking care of everything.  We know what to do.”  I still had two weeks left to go, so I finished those two weeks.  I was being really strong.  I just shut down.  People were coming up and saying, “We’re really sorry about your mom.”  And I was like, “Yeah, it’s fine.  She’s in a better place.”  Everybody was like, “You didn’t like your mom?”  I know my mom in Heaven would have said, “Screw this little bastard!”  And then, Kermit came up and said, ‘Dan, I’m really sorry about your mother,’ and I lost it.  I was holding onto Kermit.'”
 
It was really cool.  He was great!”
