Steven Seagal the action-movie star will now be seen as Steven Seagal: Lawman.
A&E has announced production on a new reality series that will focus the mega-action star's 20 years working as a fully-commissioned deputy with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office in Louisiana.
If his under-the-radar law enforcement background was a surprise, know that he's also considered an expert marksman who has worked with Jefferson's SWAT team and has instructed their officers in firearms and hand-to-hand combat. Noted: Reason #1098 not to mess with Steven Seagal.
The show will allow viewers to ride along with Seagal as he and his hand-selected deputies respond to crimes as they happen. We will also be treated to a softer side of Seagal as he goes off-duty...
Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange are teaming up for HBO Films' adaptation of Grey Gardens, based on the 1975 documentary about Jackie O's kooky cousin and aunt that's already spawned a Broadway musical. No word yet on whether the pic will debut in theaters or on HBO. In somewhat less prestigious movie news, Steven Seagal has written himself a new starring vehicle, A Higher Form of Learning, which is going straight to DVD. In it, he plays a detective who globe-trots in pursuit of serial killers. What? You were expecting a gardener?
