Action-movie star Steven Seagal is thinking about following in the footsteps of another screen hero, Arnold Schwarzenegger, by running for governor. On the publicity trail for a new TV show, Seagal said he is considering a run for Arizona's highest elected office.
The Mark for Death actor told KNXV-TV that he is considering a shot at the governorship and has had a talk about the bid with the self-proclaimed "toughest sheriff in America".
teven Seagal is being threatened with a lawsuit over his part in a police raid that was taped for his A&E reality show, TMZ reported.
The actor, who has served as a reserve deputy sheriff since the mid-'80s, was part of a team that arrived at Jesus Sanchez Llovera's Arizona house in March with a tank and armed in full riot gear, Llovera alleges in his legal documents.

Llovera claims that the raid, carried out by the Maricopa County Sheriff's Department, was "unfounded" because they believed Llovera was raising roosters for illegal cockfighting. But he says the roosters are only "for show."
Llovera -- who served both Seagal and Sheriff Joe Arpaio with an official notice of claim, the first step toward a lawsuit -- says his 11-month-old puppy was shot and killed during the raid and that police also killed more than 100 of his roosters.
The TSA single him out for special treatment whenever he flies...not certain but I think that was the straw that broke the camel's back for Ventura and his decision to leave the States.
Perhaps this is why the real mobsters at the wiretapped meeting were having a good chuckle as they recounted a visit that a couple of them had paid on action-star Steven Seagal. On the FBI tape, they say that the tough-guy actor was "petrified."
