Danny Trejo is no stranger to Hollywood. The veteran character actor has appeared in nearly 200 films, but Robert Rodriguez's upcoming film 'Machete' is his first lead role, and one that finally allowed him to take advantage of a leading man's perk -- making out with a beautiful co-star, he said on 'Attack of the Show' (weeknights, 7PM ET on G4).

Women In Chains!

Rose McGowanIt's not exactly Live Nude Girls!, but close, no? Women In Chains!, for our purposes here, serves as the title of a new show described as a violent drama set at a women's prison that Robert Rodriguez is now shopping around. If you're thinking, "Wait, isn't HBO doing a women's prison series?" you would be correct. But if we can have two shows about bikers, there has to be room for two shows about women's prisons.

The show, written by Josh Miller and Mark Fortin, will star Rodriguez's fiancee, Rose McGowan. She'll play one of five women central to the show. It's rumored to have a 70s exploitation feel, and there's talk of mud wrestling. Alan Ball's Bad Girls most likely takes HBO out of the equation, but I'd certainly prefer Showtime over any of the normal networks, just for the freedom it would provide. The linked article mentions NBC and FX as receiving the spec script. Should it end up at either of those, it will be interesting to see how what looks to be an envelope pushing show plays out under the tighter restrictions.

A live-action Jetsons movie (maybe)

The JetsonsDespite what Best Week Ever says, Grindhouse co-director Robert Rodriguez is not directing a live-action version of the popular Hanna-Barbera cartoon The Jetsons. He was, however, shown the script and says he might be interested in it. This is just one of many projects being offered to him, so it remains to be seen if we'll be seeing a Rodriguez-directed film with the likes of George, Jane, Judy, Elroy, Astro, Rosie, Mr. Spacely, Mr. Cogswell and Orbity, the Scrappy-Doo of the Jetson's universe (and I liked both characters, I'm just saying they were polarizing).
