Our good friend Steven Seagal is at it again. In a fact finding mission to Russia, Seagal joined a congressional delegation to see what could be prevented in the future to stop attacks like the Boston Marathon bombing.
So far, they have reported few findings (surprise surprise).
Apparently Seagal, who is reported to be well connected in Russia, has met with Russian President Vladimir Putin and also the ruler of Chechnya, Ramzan-Kadyrov.
This is a true story.
When Seagal first popped his funny head into MMA in Anderson Silva and then Lyoto Machida's corner I found it curiously comical. The revelation that he was actually requested and invited by Anderson Silva and Lyoto Machida turned my curiosity into disbelief.
I think I, like everybody, just keep thinking...what could this B rated action star actor POSSIBLY bring to the table with a world leader like Vladimir Putin or to possibly the GOAT, Anderson Silva? Is he paying them to make appearances with him? Could I be wrong and Seagal is actually much smarter than he appears?
Now it's easy for me to write here from my computer criticizing Steven Seagal for his bizarre interjections, but I have to respect that he DID travel to Japan at the tender age of 21, he DID make a name for himself and become a big movie star, and he HAS met the leaders of countless strong countries and apparently coached some of the greatest fighters to ever walk the earth. He didn't just cruise through life following orders, he beat the drum of life to the melody he wanted. I guess I just still find it hard to believe that Seagal, a man who really was (imo) a terrible actor, can really be respected?
