Thomas Bruso, better known to the world as "Epic Beard Man" or Tom Slick, or Vietnam Tom, gained fame after he turned up in a YouTube video taken while he was riding an Oakland bus.

Bruso is shown getting into an altercation with another man, while wearing a shirt that says "I AM A MOTHERF****R." As Busco tries to walk away, the other man continues hurling taunts, and a fist. Bruso, beats the other guy to the ground, and gets off the bus. The vid goes viral and he is dubbed "Epic Beard Man."

Epic Beard Man's epic-ness has just become more epic with a Hollywood feature starring Danny Trejo as the Epic Beard Man character.

The film called "Bad Ass" appears to be based on the viral video, and Bruso.
