(Newser) – He wouldn't be the first actor to trade the silver screen for the governor's mansion: Steven Seagal is making noises to KNXV-TV about running for Jan Brewer's job in Arizona. In conversations with BFF Joe Arpaio, with whom he teamed for reality show Steven Seagal—Lawman: Maricopa County, he says they talked about it as "kind of a joke, but I suppose I would remotely consider it." The action star is decidedly not joking about border security, calling it the No. 1 problem facing the nation: "Reagan once said if you don't have security on your borders, you don't have a country."

OMG!! The guy beat up his first wife. The rumor is that he sexually harassed other women too. He never knew how to defend himself with martial arts. It was all make-believe & so was his terribvle acting.

Poor Joey wandered off the reservation and is now making his own missions. It's not the results Joey it's also the elegance with which they are executed.
