As a "lifelong practitioner of the martial arts," Steven Seagal says he is trained to remain calm in the face of adversity and danger. "When the world is speeding by for others, I see things for what they are," the aging action hero intones in an episode of his new A&E show, "Steven Seagal: Lawman," which premieres tonight. "A cock of the head, a foot planted forward or back, a flick of the wrist -- they all tell me something." Yeah, well, as a lifelong practitioner of journalism, I'm also trained to see things for what they are. And for what they're not. And Seagal's new show seems almost as far-fetched as his movies, which include "Under Siege," "Hard to Kill" and "Above the Law."

Sylvester Stallone announced on his Twitter account that Ultimate Fighting Championship star Ronda Rousey and former welterweight boxing champion Victor Ortiz will appear in the third “The Expendables” film. Rousey, scheduled to defend her women's bantamweight belt for the second time Dec. 28 against Miesha Tate, reportedly signed with the talent agency William Morris  this year. Ortiz, who hasn't fought since getting his jaw broken in a June 2012 loss to Josesito Lopez at Staples Center, recently performed on ABC's “Dancing With the Stars.” “Expendables 3” is aiming for an August 2014 release, according to IMDB.

With Steven Seagal's "Marked for Death" riding high at the box office--it grossed nearly $12 million in its first four days of release--the tough-guy star is at work on his native turf, Brooklyn, where he's just started shooting his next film. It's called "The Price of Our Blood" and Seagal tells us: "I'm finally doing a picture I'm excited about."

Tall and lean, with the rough, good looks of a daredevil jet pilot, Steven Seagal is more than just a 6-foot-4 martial-arts wizard who can flip a man 5 feet in the air with a flick of his wrist. His fans proclaim that he's a star waiting to be born. And let's talk fans. Seagal has an enthusiastic film studio booster (Warner Bros.

You see this guy, right? And he looks like he's the lineal descendant of a ferocious jungle cat. But, what the hey, you and your six or seven buddies take him on. In seconds, you and your buddies are lying on the ground in pieces, and he's still standing. With me, so far? OK, here's my problem: Knowing what this cat is capable of, why do you and your six or seven buddies insist on taking him on again? And again? And AGAIN?

'Under Siege II: Dark Territory" could easily be dubbed "Steven Seagal: Forbidden Zone" if any weight is given to the rising tide of complaints and accusations from its crew that continue to plague the film. Former line producer Chris Kenny has surfaced with a big bone to pick. He insists that he wasn't fired to be replaced by Steve Perry as stated in a Times article Aug. 28.

Action star Steven Seagal's latest movie, "Out for Justice," topped the weekend box office, scoring an even bigger opening than his "Marked for Death" did last fall. "Justice" was followed by a tale of "Turtles," "Lambs" and "Wolves." By this weekend, "Home Alone," with $262.4 million to date, is expected to pass "Return of the Jedi's" $263 million to become the third-top-grossing U.S. film ever.

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office on Monday charged an ex-convict with making a "criminal threat" against a Los Angeles Times reporter who was researching the relationship between actor Steven Seagal and an alleged Mafia associate. Alexander Proctor, 59, faces up to three years in prison if convicted on the charge, which stems from a threat against Times reporter Anita Busch.

Well, well. Two famous men, both wanting to give back. No wonder that hackneyed phrase “give back” makes my skin crawl. Lance Armstrong is reportedly volunteering to “help clean up” cycling and become the repentant poster boy crusading against drugs in the sport. And Steven Seagal, the action actor, is teaming up with Maricopa County (Ariz.) Sheriff Joe Arpaio to teach Arpaio's armed volunteer cadres about how to handle school shootings. More on that in a few paragraphs.

America's self-styled toughest sheriff is teaming up with an action star. Steven Seagal will lead a training session about school shootings Saturday at the request of his pal Joe Arpaio - an immigration hardliner and the brazen sheriff of Arizona's most populous county, Maricopa, which includes Phoenix.  Seagal will train Arpaio's volunteer “posse,” which boasts about 3,500 members and tackles an array of issues, Arpaio told the Los...

In rural Do ñ a Ana County in southern New Mexico, there's a new sheriff in town - a deputy sheriff, that is. He's a tough guy, agile on his feet, and he knows how to handle thugs in the movies and, apparently, in real life. He's film action star Steven Seagal. The 60-year-old actor, producer and martial arts expert is lending star power to the tiny department whose coverage area includes the U.S.-Mexico border. Seagal, who has offered to train officers, was sworn in as a deputy this week by Sheriff Todd Garrison.

After six years of legal sniping, actor Steven Seagal and his former business partner, Julius R. Nasso, buried the hatchet Sunday, ending a bitter court battle that had spawned allegations of contract breach and Mafia extortion. As a result of the confidential, out-of-court settlement, Nasso is expected to drop his $60-million lawsuit against Seagal, which alleged that the actor reneged on an agreement to produce four films with him.

The writers-producers of "Marked for Death" are thrilled that their low-budget, wall-to-wall action picture grossed about as much at the box office during its first week in release as it cost to make. But Mark Victor and Michael Grais aren't interested in engaging their star, martial arts master Steven Seagal, in any kind of combat over the hit film's writing credit.

"On Deadly Ground" is the movie that's offending just about everybody here. While that, in itself, may not be unusual for a Hollywood picture, what is interesting is that this film, which has been No. 1 and No.

A former Navy Seal who is a friend of action star Steven Seagal has lambasted the FBI for suggesting he was involved in an effort to intimidate a magazine writer working on an unflattering story about Seagal. John Rottger faulted the FBI for suggesting in an affidavit that he resembled the man who threatened Vanity Fair writer Ned Zeman with a gun in August 2002. "I don't even remotely resemble the suspect," Rottger, who has not been charged in the incident, said in an interview.

Not long ago, Steven Seagal was one of the best-paid action stars in Hollywood. The martial arts master played crime-busting anti-heroes in films that generated more than $1 billion in ticket and DVD sales during the 1990s. Now he appears in low-budget productions that go straight to video. Seagal says he knows why: Five years ago, he was implicated in a plot to frighten two journalists out of writing unflattering stories about him and his former business partner.
