Action Star Seagal Mulls Ariz. Governor Bid

Saturday, 04 Jan 2014 09:01 PM

Action-movie star Steven Seagal says he is considering a run for Arizona governor.

The “Marked for Death” actor told KNXV-TV that he is considering a shot at the state’s highest office and has had a talk about the bid with the self-proclaimed toughest sheriff in America.

The 61-year-old made the comments while talking about his newly released reality series “Steven Seagal - Lawman: Maricopa County.”

Story continues below video.




Seagal teamed up with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio for the show that was shot in Arizona and airs on cable TV’s Reelz Channel.

He said the idea of a run for governor initially came up as a "joke" with Arpaio.

The martial arts expert is a member of Arpaio’s posse, made up of 3,000 unpaid civilians. He also has been deputized with sheriff’s offices in New Mexico, Texas, and Louisiana.

He says the nation's top concern is "open borders" and that he wants to increase border security.
