They want you to play Marcia Brady,'” Trejo told VOXXI about the first time he got the news. “For 20 years, I’ve been the bad guy in Hollywood. I’ve been the meanest guy in Hollywood. I’ve been the guy that when I walk in the room, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone all stand up, and they expect me to do Marcia Brady?” he laughed. Trejo admitted that the idea of playing a vain and pretty TV character was “hilarious.” Eventually he gave in, stating that he’s seen previous commercials starring Joe Pesci and Betty White. “I said ‘yes, yes, yes’ because I love Snickers too. It was just funny,” Trejo said, adding that he liked watching the late ’60s and early ’70s sitcom because he was “in love with the mom.” The commercials with the slogan “You’re not you, when you’re hungry” have become popular in recent years. When asked about how he reacts when he’s feeling hungry, Trejo said, “you should ask my daughter.” Further elaborating, he explained that “grumpy” is not the word to describe him.”You know, when it’s feeding time at the zoo and all the animals are going crazy? That’s me when I get hungry,” he said. As the Super Bowl XLIX approaches, Trejo said he’s rooting for the West Coast team, the Seahawks.

I love her performances,” he said of the Puerto Rican songstress.
