Steven Seagal’s New TV
Series Now Has A Trailer!!

I am – Hercules!! 58-year-old Steven Seagal can no longer outrun Elle Fanning, nor can he really lift his leg anymore, but as tough but tender TV cop Elijah Kane he’s still a bona fide action hero! Will producers allow Kane to hook up with the character played by 28-year-old Sarah Lind (“The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford”)? G4 (or any other U.S. channel) has yet to pounce on Seagal’s first scripted TV series, “True Justice” (formerly “Southern Justice”), but producers have slapped together a hip-hop trailer for the project: Find photos and more details about the series at Moviehole.

    Looks better than all of the dumb cop shows on tv now

    by elsachmo

    I'd be interested in checking it out. Seagal is hit and miss, but it does look better than crap like Hawaii 5-0 and the other "crime" shows that I see on tv right now.

    I agree with rbatty024

    by Rocco Curioso

    It's a cop show, starring Steven Seagal. Set in Seattle, the hometown of our justly revered Vern, the man who wrote the definitive book on Seagal's movie career ("Seagalogy: A Study Of The Ass-Kicking Films Of Steven Seagal"). Added to which, before becoming the astute writer & movie critic he is today, Vern did time. For *what* I don't know, but the man has a nefarious past.<P>Jesus H titty-fucking Christ... HOW hard would it have been to honor the man with a cameo appearance as a bad guy? They damn well better if this show extends beyond the first 13 episodes.

  • Nov. 21, 2010, 5:36 p.m. CST


    by Bruce Leroy

    I saw Seagal's Latest movie effort. Written and produced by him. "Born to Raise Hell". It was absolute shit. This trailer reminds me a lot of that film. I'll probably check out the series anyway. You know, for a good laugh.

    who is the fucking assface that thinks Segal should still be in

    by idrinkyourmilkshake

    I mean, he's fat as fuck...that ruins the suspension of disbelief to me( And yes, SAMMO HUNG is too...but h can move, and he is the real he doesn't count). Also, he is so wooden, he might as well be propped up against a wall at HOME DEPOT. I mean seriously...I liked his 80's movies too. But everything from 1992 and after, he's done is FUCKING GARBAGE

  • Nov. 21, 2010, 7:52 p.m. CST

    The Trailer Desperately Needs Some Taglines

    by Acquanetta

    However, the one hour format means it will avoid the kind of padding that plagues most of Seagal's DTV flicks. I'm guessing Seagal will actually bother to do his own ADR as well, which means no more voice dubbing.

  • Nov. 21, 2010, 8:38 p.m. CST

    TV Trailers always...

    by WeylandYutani

    use dialogue in such awkward ways. Sure film trailers often stink too, but at least they tell you a little narrative, instead of random clips stuffed together. I hate when a film trailer gives away the story, but TV trailers just give me headache. <P> As for this, it may be a good cop thriller, but I got the sense that this is derivative of Michael Mann's Miami Vice film. It even aped several score tracks and stings.

    Ya, Seattle's one of the most boring cities crime-wise

    by bullet3

    Kinda hilarious to see it portrayed as some super-dangerous crime zone. Would be cool if they shot at least some of the show here, although more likely its all shot in Vancouver. That trailer didn't look like Seattle in any way shape or form.

  • Nov. 22, 2010, 2:14 a.m. CST

    Recent examples of Seagal lifting his leg

    by Vern

    1. When he kicked out the car window in the season 2 premiere of LAWMAN.<p> 2. In the video where he's training Lyoto Machida for his fight with Rampage Jackson<p> Okay, so he's not kicking very high, but he does still use a foot now and then. In all fairness he was never much of a kicker even in the skinny ABOVE THE LAW days.

WTF is up with that?<br> I'm not trying to play mr moral here, because we all masturbate to porn and I don't care, but can you please explain the purpose of advertising shit like Girls Gone Wild on AICN? This is even by your standards low. What's next? A link to the BangBros website? Like I said, we all jerk off to porn, but advertise it where it belongs!

    too late (sort of)<p>Harry, in his review of The Middle Men, linked to youporn. It's not that he simply mentions the site, but actually created a link to it. I was certain, on seeing that link, it would turn out to be some kind of gag; expected to be redirected to Harry's wiki page or a Rick Astley video. Nope, it was Harry pimping for a porn site.

    maybe 10 years ago

    by Firebreather

    this would have worked, but not now. There is no way this is picked up unless some network exec thinks they could use it in a slot running against Sons of Anarchy. But I doubt it, and it can't compete with SOA, obviously. IMHO

    "Nobody listens nowadays anymore."

    by The Reluctant Austinite

    You could say "Nobody listens nowadays" or "Nobody listens anymore" but what Seagal says is redundant. That's all I'm going to criticize. Anything else is like shooting fish in a barrel. Really fat fish. In a little barrel.

    by Darth Busey

    "PHOENIX (CBS/AP) If it were a reality show, it could be called "Rounding Up Immigrants with the Stars." Catchy, huh? Actually, it's the real deal: a posse to crack down on illegal immigrants, organized by Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County in Arizona, and whose number includes the actor-bodybuilder Lou Ferrigno (aka "The Incredible Hulk"), action-film star Steven Seagal, and actor Peter Lupus formerly of TV's "Mission: Impossible." In all, 56 members of the posse were sworn-in at a ceremony on Wednesday, although Seagal and Lupus did not attend. What exactly will this Hollywood-heavy posse be doing to crackdown on illegals? Arpaio says the volunteers' duties include bringing arrestees to jail, and handling demonstrators who interfere with immigration patrols. "Arizona is the busiest port of entry for people being smuggled in from Mexico, Latin and South America. So asking for the public's help in this endeavor makes sense, especially given the success the posses have experienced over the years," Arpaio told CBS affiliate KPHO. Arpaio has sworn-in similar posses since taking office in 1993, with membership having grown to nearly 3,000. "Law enforcement budgets are being cut and agencies are losing personnel and yet the battle to stop illegal immigration must continue," Arpaio told the station. The self-styled "America's Toughest Sheriff" told KPHO, "My ultimate goal with the creation of this newest posse is to catch and jail as many illegal immigrants coming into this county and to apprehend those who are illegally living and working here already." Others who were "posse-tized" by Arapaio include pilots, attorneys, former law enforcement or military members, truckers, business owners, computer programmers, financial advisers and real estate experts. Ferrigno, best known for his starring role in "The Incredible Hulk" television series, lives in California. He says the volunteers have a job to do to help protect the country against drug and immigrant smugglers. "I must warn you that we are in for a rude awakening, because this country right now is in a lot of danger," Ferrigno said at the ceremony Wednesday. Stay tuned."
