    'Is that Danny Trejo?' That was the question that likely left many couches as people watched Chapter 3 of The Book of Boba Fett this past Wednesday. Danny Trejo was introduced as the Rancor Keeper, adding to the legendary actor's astonishing 419 acting credits, according to IMDb. Trejo has since taken to Twitter to thank the team for finally bringing him into Star Wars.

    First of all, if you haven't seen Robert Rodriguez's Machete, what are you doing? Not for the faint of heart, the 2010 action movie and its sequel Machete Kills star Trejo as a former special agent who uses a machete and whatever else he can get his hands on to hunt down his enemies in a quest for vengeance. Trejo's character was originally from another of Rodriguez's franchises, Spy Kids, before getting the spinoff movies.



    The reference to space in Trejo's tweet is a little play on words for fans of the character, who are patiently hoping for a third movie where Machete would go into space, as teased in Machete Kills. Because where else would a B-movie action hero go? Whether that happens or not, it's cool to see Rodriguez and Trejo teaming back up.



    It's also cool to see just how many practical elements are in The Book of Boba Fett. Of course the original rancor used in 1983's Return of the Jedi was a puppet created by ILM. You can read more facts about the wizardry they performed in shooting Luke's fight with the rancor here. Whether this new rancor will stay practical when Boba Fett learns to ride the beast, time will tell. I'd suspect not given our exclusive report on the matter which you can read here. But beware of spoilers if you're trying to avoid them.

    I legit thought that the Hutts gave the rancor to Fett in hopes that it would kill him, and Trejo was a plant:

    "Yes, you can absolutely approach the depressed, hungry beast. No its not dangerous, why would you ever think that? Stand right there by its mouth and pet it. It really loves that. Good, good... hey how do you get out of this place? Okay great. Now stand where it can see only you while I remove these blinders... wow you're a great listener, very trusting, perfect form, he's going to love you...." *takes off running*
