Check Out This Fallout 4 Danny Trejo Character

"Time to hit the wastelands."


It looks like actor Danny Trejo plays Bethesda's celebrated open-world RPG, Fallout 4, just like the rest of us. The Machete actor on Monday posted an image of a character he evidently created, along with the caption: "Time to hit the wastelands."

It's a pretty faithful recreation of Trejo, though--as the official Fallout Twitter account points out--the character model is missing the 71-year-old's signature long hair. Or maybe it's in a ponytail.

It looks like this Trejo character--either created by the actor or maybe sent to him from a fan--just got started with Fallout 4, as the text shown in the image is from an early part of the post-apocalyptic role-playing game (via Polygon). You'll notice that the Pip-Boy text color is also changed.

Trejo is no stranger to the Fallout series, as he provided the voice of Fallout: New Vegas character Raul Tejada. His other video game credits Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies DLC, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.

No Caption Provided

The Fallout 4 community has created a number of characters based on celebrities and fictional characters, including Taylor Swift, Kanye West, and Nigel Thornberry. But Trejo appears to be one of the first celebrities to make a character based on their own likeness.
