China Salesman [Trailer]

The trailer for China Salesman is finally here!

We’re not sure how big a role Seagal has (cause the details about this one are virtually non-existent), but if the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it appearance in the trailer is anything to go by, it’s likely a very small part.

** look for Seagal throwing some paper at the 1:05 mark **

UPDATE: one of the community members pointed out “some quality slappy-hands at the 51 second mark“.  Don’t blink.

Above The Law

So, the Phoenix Times reports that Seagal found in contempt of court and dealt a $500 fine for attempting to avoid Jury Service.  Judge Warner clearly doesn’t like him.

Everyone does jury service… John McCain found a day, took jury service, and a lot of [people] depend on him.  Judges do jury service. I’ve had a number of my colleagues on the [jury] panels.  I get doctors, I get lawyers.  I get business owners, I get street sweepers.  Everyone comes in and gets jury service.

Also, his attorney Mark Goldman had was being awfy creative:

Mr. Seagal’s contracts are personal service contracts where it is clearly impossible for him to delegate his work to another individual… nor is a 6’5″ stunt double martial artist available with a 7th degree black belt in Aikido.

Clearly hasn’t  seen much of Seagal’s DTV releases these days.

Interview with David Jones on the Sports Wrap Up Radio Show

Well, well, well.  Here’s something of interest.  The Sports Wrap Up Radio Show Interview with David Jones.  There’s some really pretty interesting chat here – boxing, movies, Hollywood, and the, eh, good times ahead.

Obviously some politics is thrown in for good measure.

Naturally, you can listen to the whole thing over at their site.

Russian Citizenship!?

Yup, a decree appearing on the Kremlin website yesterday  states “Vladimir Putin signed an executive order according Russian citizenship to Steven Seagal”.  That’s right, Steven Seagal.

The Guardian reported that there hasn’t been any big presentation shenanigans, but there was a statement from Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov:

“It was his wish; he really was asking for citizenship persistently and for quite a long time… He is known for his warm feelings to our country, which he has never hidden.”

So, I guess it’s potato chips and red wine over at Gérard Depardieu’s to celebrate.  Hurrah!

Warships and Watermelons

Steven Seagal recently visited Minsk in Belarus and found himself treated to some marvellous produce and, reportedly, a meal of lard by Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko.   It’s a visit that’s getting a fair bit of attention and, naturally, the media are focussing on Seagal’s hook-up with the chap they’re describing as the “last dictator of Europe” (this is Lukashenko’s fifth term as President).

Anyhoo, the visit gave us some great images (we’re awfy fond of Seagal with the watermelons – he looks like he’s had a bit of a chuckle about something), but what’s been mentioned only as a footnote in the reports of Seagal’s Belarus stop is actually pretty swell news, too.

See, Seagal is the new Heroic Battle Expert to Belarusian online game developer Wargaming.  That’s right.   Steven Seagal has signed up as an advisor for for a game about naval warfare.  Awesome.

“His resume speaks for itself: he’s a man who’s hard to kill, always out for justice, and willing to make an executive decision. With numerous victories against the odds under his belt (and as a guy who knows a thing or two about warships), Steven is the only man up to the task” – Wargaming

You can watch Seagal’s visit to the Wargaming offices below.

The other great news was dropped on us via Seagal’s twitter account.
