Steven Seagal: Delusional Has-Been

Haven't seen Steven Seagal lately? You're not alone.
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.

Are you serious? What a fucking loser. I mean that. Steven Seagal is a FUCKING LOSER! I've never liked that no talent ass clown and I'm pretty sure I only know one group of people that did and they're all related. He was a horrible actor that couldn't even do realistic stunts that played the same part in countless ridiculous movies that all had the same plot. Some evil people are trying to do some ridiculously evil deed and Steven just happens to be in the right place to kick some ass all the way until justice is done. God bless America.

Now, to be fair, he has never been found guilty or even been charged with anything.
Seagal and the alleged plot to intimidate journalists became a footnote. The actor was never charged, and federal authorities have privately told reporters they have no persuasive evidence against him. But the FBI has never publicly cleared him.

Seagal said the publicity has been devastating to his career. He wants an apology.

"False FBI accusations fueled thousands of articles saying that I terrorize journalists and associate with the Mafia," Seagal, 56, said recently in his first public comments on the case. "These kinds of inflammatory allegations scare studio heads and independent producers -- and kill careers."

But wouldn't terrorizing evil journalists be more like his movie character than just sniveling and whining and blaming the FBI when America finally realized you suck? Have some pride, man.

Let's rip on him some more.
"This controversy made the studios very nervous," said longtime Hollywood publicist Howard Bragman. "Let's be honest: Steven Seagal was no Harrison Ford when this happened. But these accusations certainly hastened his decline."

Buuuuurn. I would say he wasn't even a homeless man's Charles Bronson when this happened but that's just me.

Here's what it boils down to for me. I don't know if he's guilty or innocent or if it's because of this or that that has caused him to stop making high-budget movies but all I know is that I want it to continue.
