Steven Seagal is back, and he looks weird
STEVEN Seagal is a name that hasn't been at the forefront of discussion for some time, but the 90s movie star is well and truly back in the spotlight after his incredibly bizarre interview on Good Morning Britain.
The 65-year-old actor appeared on the British morning show via Skype and managed to cover an impressive amount of topics during the five minute interview with Piers Morgan.
But before we get to what was actually discussed we need to address the strange, 'villain in a 90s action movie', look that he has adopted.
The sharp widows peak of his dyed black hair, accompanied by a matching goatee, high necked black top and humorously small glasses made for a severe, even sinister appearance.
Unsurprisingly people on Twitter were quick to notice Seagal's villianesque look, making some very creative comparisons.
But we must not let Seagal's transformation into a Bond villain distract us from the actual interview, which was also filled with its fair share of bizarre comments.
He started out by expressing concern over the "Obama-ites" and the "enemies within" that he thinks are trying to take down President Trump.
"We have so many enemies out there and we have a ton of enemies within. There is this whole group of left over Obama-ites and people who feel that they should overthrow Trump," he said.
He seemed very troubled by the mysterious "enemies within", repeating again that they are the real issue in the Trump Presidency.
"Any decisions he makes and anything he tries to do, he gets blocked so often from the enemies within. So it is very difficult for him to do anything."
He then goes on a rant about the NFL football players kneeling during the American National Anthem in a silent protest against racial injustice, calling it "disgusting" and "a joke" while in the same breath talking about how he is an advocate for free speech.
"I believe in free speech. I believe that everyone is entitled to their own opinion but I don't agree that they should hold the United States of America or the world hostage by taking a venue where people are tuning in to watch a football game and imposing their political views. I think it's a joke. It's disgusting," he told the morning show hosts.
Adding: "I myself have risked my life countless times for the American flag and I don't understand or agree with this kind of behaviour. I think it's an outrage."
Morgan then pointed out that some might view his patriotism as being contradicted by his recent Russian citizenship and ongoing praise for Vladimir Putin, as many people believe that Russia interfered in the 2016 US election.
Seagal hit back that it was absolutely ridiculous to think that his good buddy Vladimir Putin had anything to do with Trump winning the presidency and anyone that thought so was dumb.
"Why don't we be really honest here Piers. Every country is involved in espionage, every single country. However for anyone to think that Vladimir Putin had anything to do with fixing the elections or even that the Russians have that kind of technology is stupid," he said.
According to Seagal it is all propaganda designed to distract US citizens and that the two countries should be "great allies".
After tackling the big issues they still managed to find time to squeeze in a plug Seagal's new kung fu movie before finishing the interview.
