In the movie, Larry played a restaurant health inspector who must get to the bottom of a rash of food poisonings at several upscale restaurants.

There’s not a better feeling in the entire world then when you look out and see the audience is identifying with you.”

A native of Galveston, Texas, Bill moved to Dallas and was working as a disc jockey with plans of becoming of a teacher.

Bill resides in Southern California with his wife and two children.

DJ QUALLS (Everett Shackleford)

A hip and hot rising star, DJ Qualls continues to shine in a myriad of film roles. Qualls was last seen opposite Terrence Howard in the critically-acclaimed Hustle and Flow.

Qualls plays Shelby, the young white guy with serious musical talent who helps in creating Djay's (Howard) new music career. He was also recently seen playing the role of Corey in the independent film Little Athens, a drama about the unfortunate lives of several small town youth. Scheduled to be released this year is his starring role in I'm Reed Fish. This drama, which also stars Alexis Bledel and Jay Baruchel focuses on the lives of three residents of the same town. As one of the three residents, DJ plays a convenience store owner in love with the town's beauty (Bledel).

In 2003, DJ joined Hilary Swank and Aaron Eckhardt in The Core for Paramount Pictures. This Action-Adventure/ Sci-Fi film had DJ playing "Rat," a computer hacker who helps save the world. Prior to The Core, Qualls starred in Revolution Studio's The New Guy, a script written specifically with him in mind. Directed by There's Something About Mary co-writer Ed Decter, the story centers around a nerdy high school senior (Qualls) who gets himself expelled so that he can attend the town's rival high school and reinvent himself as "cool."

Also in the can for DJ is Sony Screen Gems' Lone Star State of Mind, opposite Joshua Jackson and Jaime King. Set in Texas, this comedy is about a young couple fighting to get out of the state. Along the way things go awry when Qualls who plays Junior, robs a pizza delivery boy who just happens to be a mobster. In addition, Qualls co-produced and starred in the Lions Gate film Comic Book Villains, a dark comedy about the comic book industry and rival comic book stores. He stars opposite Donal Logue, Michael Rapaport, Danny Masterson and Cary Elwes. DJ can also be seen in the Lions Gate film Chasing Holden. Qualls plays Neil, a student who is assigned to answer the question, "What happens to Holden Caulfield?" While searching for answers about this main character in "Catcher in the Rye," he discovers unanswered questions about his own life.

Qualls is perhaps best known for his role as the geeky Kyle in Dreamworks' smash hit, Road Trip. DJ received much praise for his portrayal as the studious member of the road trip gang. He has since added a great list of credits to his name.

Other film credits include Big Trouble, Cherry Falls and Mama's Flora's Family. His television credits include: "Criminal Minds", "Lost", "Monk", Law & Order: Criminal Intent" and "Scrubs."

DJ grew up in a small town in middle Tennessee and is one of five children. After studying at the University of London, he returned to Tennessee and began a series of odd jobs before performing in local theatre and later being discovered by photographers David Chappelle and Steven Kline. This led to a lucrative career modeling for Prada, as well as many other advertising/editorial campaigns.

He splits his time between Los Angeles and Tennessee. He is proud to be a cancer survivor and an advocate for cancer awareness and research.

DANNY TREJO (Carlos Santana)

Danny Trejo has developed a prolific career in the movie business, yet his road to success has been hard earned and everything but typical. From imprisonment to helping young people battle drug addiction, acting to producing, the name, face, and achievements of Danny Trejo are well recognized in Hollywood.

Danny grew up on the streets of Los Angeles. Despite spending the latter part of his youth and early adulthood incarcerated, Danny rose to great accomplishment. Upon his release from San Quentin, he became involved in programs aimed at helping those who, like him, battle drug and alcohol addictions.

Years later, Danny went to the set of RUNAWAY TRAIN to offer support to a man he’d been counseling. He was immediately offered a role as a convict. Danny has since gone on to star in dozens of films including: DESPERADO, the FROM DUSK ‘TIL DAWN film series, HEAT (Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino), CON AIR (Nicolas Cage), ONCE UPON A TIME IN MEXICO (Johnny Depp). Trejo has also appeared in the series of SPY KIDS films as “Uncle Machete”.

Danny can also be seen in the independent films THE CROW: WICKED PRAYER, THE DEVIL’S REJECTS, the sequel to HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES, and SHERRY BABY opposite Maggie Gyllenhaal. Danny has teamed up once again with Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino in their new film GRIND HOUSE, and recently wrapped DELTA FARCE, starring Dan Whitney AKA “Larry the Cable Guy”. Next for Danny is a spring start in the HALLOWEEN SEQUEL, written and directed by Rob Zombie. He’s also appeared on numerous television shows including Kingpin, The District, NYPD Blue, The X-Files, and Resurrection Blvd. Danny recurs on the series King of the Hill and has appeared on an episode of Grounded for Life starring Donal Logue, Monk starring Tony Shalhoub, The George Lopez Show starring George Lopez, and Desperate Housewives.

In 2000, Danny formed his production company “Starburst” where his first endeavors into producing was the award winning short AN EYE FOR TALENT followed by THE ANIMAL FACTORY, directed by Steve Buscemi. MY FATHER’S FLAG is the next feature in development under that banner, a film about a young soldier’s conflict between his father and country and his evolution into a patriot.

“Trejo 4.0 Productions” is Danny’s newest venture. The company has recently wrapped “NICE GUYS”, directed by Joe Eckardt. It’s a story about a group of Hollywood hopefuls who decide to steal marijuana from the FBI with the plan of returning it and using the reward money to finance their movie. The film stars Jason Mewes, David Faustino, Corin Nemec, Jason Marsden, Eddie Furlong, Robert Rodriguez, Andy Dick, and Michael DeLorenzo.

Despite his impressive list of credits, it’s his continual role as a devoted husband, father of three and as an intervention counselor that bring him the most satisfaction.
