TVLine has learned exclusively that Trejo, whose myriad pulpy big screen turns include Machete Kills, The Devil’s Rejects and From Dusk Till Dawn, will guest-star on the CBS drama as a character who has past ties not just to Hetty, but Callen and Sam as well.

“It’s a big episode that takes everyone down to Mexico, where there’s a lot of action as well as character stuff for Callen, Sam and Hetty,” NCIS: LA showrunner Shane Brennan tells TVLine.

Trejo’s recent TV credits include an arc on Sons of Anarchy and episodes of Maron, Bones and Modern Family.
