1) Seagal Considers Tom Cruise To Be An Unworthy Homosexual

Sensei Seagal has had a storied life and career. Did you know that this director, actor, war veteran, martial artist, writer, musician, CIA operative, Navy SEAL, mob associate and Police Officer is, in fact, a reincarnation of a 17th century Tibetan Lama? Perhaps it is from this energy field that the man draws his powers. Maybe there is even a taste of it in every can of his licensed energy drink, ‘Steven Seagal’s Lightning Bolt’? Maybe it was this aura that led him to believe he could defeat the deadliest mammal to ever live, ‘Judo’ Gene LeBell, in a fight? Join us as we scrutinize the man and myth, starting with Tom Cruise.

Having been ‘raised in Japan’, or Michigan, depending on which interview you listen to, or being a martial arts expert and not unfamiliar with a sword, you’d think that Master Seagal would’ve been a shoe-in for ‘The Last Samuari’, back in 2003. Not so. And it was all political. Seagal was once asked about what the fuck was up. It was down to politics, guys. That fucker Cruise screwed him.

Q: What’s up with contemporary action heroes? Nicholas Cage and Orlando Bloom are not the stereotypical types.

A: I would say the same thing, just to be polite. Let me tell you something that might be a bit dangerous. I was raised in Japan. I was schooled in martial arts. I was given the title of master. They take a movie “The Last Samurai.” They have a 5-foot-2-inch little guy, whether he was straight or gay, I don’t know. I don’t care. He had never been to Japan. He doesn’t speak Japanese. He has never held a sword. They make him the Last Samurai. We got 450,000 phone calls [laughs] from everybody in the world saying, “That role was perfect for you. How did that happen?” Most of the people I know didn’t like the film and didn’t go see it. It’s just a classic example of Hollywood and the politics.
