I don't know about that!! Have you've seen him lately?? He is big as a house!! He looks like he has put on about 40 Lbs since his last movie. I don't believe his would fit in a leading man role, Just like Chuck Norris. Let's be real these guys are really not actors, they got into acting because they were good in their previous professions. Just like "The Terminator" there really isn't much dialog in those movies.
because I can!
As time and evolution passes so does outdated forms and brands of acting methods(Chayefsky, Shakespeare, and any other type of theater acting you can name) and that goes for the aged old Hollywood film acting styles (John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, and so on). Steven Seagal's accomplished acting format is so evolutionary it makes previous performers look debatable (Arny Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Hugh Jackman, and the list goes on). They're all great actors in their own right, but with a Seagal film a viewer gets 'real experiences' and convincing performances because Seagal lives out the film roles he's ever directed and produced with his production company Steamroller, dtv movies, etc. Don't get me wrong I like these Hollywood performers, but they haven't lived the life of an authentic bodyguard, mercenary, professional martial arts trainer, secret agent, and peace officer/border patrol in real life. Whereas, Seagal does.
