Looks like Steven Seagal is tired of make believe and blanks on a Hollywood movie set. He is going to face real bullets, with real criminals, with real drug cartels, who are using real bullets, with real guns, and have a blantant disregard for human life... Now all we need is for Mel Gibson, and Bruce Willis to join the Boarder Patrol in Texas, and our problems with illeagal drugs, and guns and immigrants will be solved.

    "Bruce Willis to join the Boarder Patrol in Texas,"

    Yep, those borderline ramshackle hotels can let boarders get too rambunctious at times.

    Maybe they will work for room and board ? above board too ? will they be bored to tears ?
    Stay tuned !!!

    How does one get "Boarder Patrol" out of that link? Boarder Patrol is federal.

    Continue making movies to avoid joining the Border Patrol?

    Ha! You took the words out of my mouth, cpj. Spot on! Ol' Marion couldn't be bothered to lift a finger in real life.

    We can laugh at Steven Seagal for his over-the-top acting but he's been a genuine LEO for years, as we've seen in the TV show. Sure, it was "reality" TV but for a long time prior, he did the job and never sought publicity for it. And he earned the respect of his colleagues too.

    I say go Steve!

    Best I can make out from reading about him, Bruce Willis is a real guy. Has his own ranch, is a genuine (but quiet) conservative, and doesn't get mixed up in the Hollywood BS. Being married to the yummy Calista Flockhart is okay, too.

    Mel Gibson? Maybe he can stay clean and salvage himself.

    Okay, okay, it's Harrison Ford who's married to Calista. My bad.

    I think that there are a lot of people that would be surprised to learn that The Duke was nothing more than an actor.

    To his credit, he was a genuine pro on set, treated everyone nicely, knew his lines, didn't throw his weight around. Extras, stuntmen, and small role actors always spoke well of him.

    He just wasn't at all the patriot or hero he played. Never got into the Hollywood USO WW2 war support scene, either. Let alone genuine front-line soldiers like Tyrone Power, Jimmy Stewart, Ward Bond, etc.

    Good for Steve.

    I vote either Steve Seagal or Bruce Willis as ultimate action hero. Bruce Willis was supposedly going to enlist during the Iraq War, but was dissuaded due to his age (this is according to his Wikipedia page). It's nice to see some people in Hollywood who are at least willing to attempt to walk the walk.

    Like with Clark Gable. After the love of his life Lombard was killed in the USO War Bond plane crash, he decided to hell with it, joined the Army Air Corp, to fly in bombers. Gable insisted on living in the barracks with the other soldiers, equal training, no special favors.

    He qualified as a gunner and flew several missions before the War Dept finally persuaded him to give up his active combat and go to the USO. Apparently the Germans has a $million bounty on whomever shot down his bomber, and it was too great a risk to his crew.

    How would they (Germans) know what plane he was on ??? :uhm:

    The never knew for sure but it was know what group he was with, and the Germans thought that eventually a photo or something similar would leak out. If not, at least they were concentrating on the correct segment. (had) :angry::angel:

    We all know the truth about Hollywood and actors, I mean the internet and The National Enquirer are not going ot make stuff up and there is where we get all of out information regarding that...
    If this post is non welcomed, I can always give you a recipe for making "tostones".

    "We all know the truth about Hollywood and actors,"

    I do not know anything about all that junk, I did however get to speak to Steven Seagal and he was pleasant enough to speak to and seemed pretty humble and down to earth.
    I was picking up a S&W 645 under warrantee at Alpine Arms and he walked in.
