Legendary tough guy actor and star of Machete Danny Trejo has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy over a $2 million IRS tax debt, reports say.
The actor who started out as a bit part villain in TV and film in the 1980s before becoming a go-to bad guy in the 1990s, filed for bankruptcy saying he is behind approximately $2 million in his taxes, and is reorganizing his finances to try and get back in the black, TMZ reported.

Trejo, 78, hinted that he went overboard trying to claim expenses that were later denied, putting him behind the eight ball for paying his taxes when he joked that he recently learned that “dog grooming” isn’t something he can write off.
