Steven Seagal will smack around criminals on the small screen

Jul. 23, 2010by: Dave Davis

We've seen Steven Seagal tear through henchmen and villains on the big screen and in countless straight-to-DVD movies, and then slap the cuffs on real-life perps on A&E's series "Lawman".

Now he's circling back to theaters with an appearance in Robert Rodriguez's MACHETE. Where to go from there?

Back to busting heads on the tube. According to Moviehole, the aging aikido master will follow in the footsteps of Chuck Norris, starring in a new action/crime series called either "Southern Justice" or "True Justice".

In the show, "Seagal plays Elijah Kane, the leader of an undercover group of cops that chases down the bad guys in the Seattle, Washington area."

The series will shoot in Vancouver, with an initial 13 episodes.

Extra Tidbit: Anyone ever tried Seagal's energy drink?

shit, I regret my "See all Seagal as a joke" goal

I watched every fucking movie he's done, and every episode of that God-forsaken Lawman series, just to say I've done it.
I really regret my decision to go with Seagal. Why didn't I do Van-Damme, dammit?

Meh

Growing up I loved watching him and all the others kick ass and take names. Now it's just Meh. His energy drink tastes like cough syrup, took one sip dumped the rest out.

I've never bought into the hype surrounding Seagal. His permanently constipated expression hasn't helped his case either. But I guess it's also worth mentioning I've never seen any of his movies - because of his constipated face.

I've had a hardy laugh at Will Sasso's impersonation though. Does that count?

I've never been a fan. He's old, fat, always sucked as an actor & was never quite believable as an action hero. Sorry fanboys.

I'm guessing Seagal love is a generation thing, this guy was the mother fucking Jet-li of the early to mid 90's. Seagal could fuck up anyones day in a hot second, Under Siege and Under Siege II are incredible action flicks. So thumbs down to the Seagal haters who werent old enough to appreciate him when he was in his prime.

This is a new low for Steven. He has now sunk to Chuck Norris level. As a young martial arts student, he was a such an inspiration for me in the nineties. He kicked so much ass and now he has become such a joke. And I disagree with the comment on passion of what he does for the fans: if he was respectful of his fans, he would have kept in shape. The way I see things, in this new show, he'll probably be sitting behind a desk 80% of the time, with his young sidekicks doing most of the action.

Once or twice per episode, he'll probably deliver a few punches. Nothing spectacular, just to say "Hey It's Me Steven Seagal... and I can still kick you in the nuts !". Credits.
