Filmmaker to do cameo in `Nash Bridges' episode

Robert Rodriguez moves to the front of the camera for an upcoming episode of "Nash Bridges."

The filmmaker, who became famous with the $7,000 cult film "El Mariachi," will have a cameo as a young wannabe film director hired by detective Joe Dominguez (Cheech Marin) to produce a television ad for a new Mexican-style salsa as part of a moneymaking scheme.The sedate, dignified commercial quickly escalates into a madcap extravaganza with musicians, dancers and animals.

Rodriguez directed Marin in "From Dusk to Dawn" and "Desperado," the big-budget sequel to "El Mariachi" that starred Antonio Banderas.
