Steven Seagal is an international icon whose movies have grossed more than $2 billion in box office revenue over the past two decades. As a seventh degree black belt Aikido master he opened a martial arts school in Los Angeles in 1985 and attracted Hollywood heavyweights Sean Connery, James Coburn, and agent Michael Ovitz. This led Seagal to movies and eventually his big screen debut with Warner Bros.’ Above The Law in 1988, which he also co-wrote and co-produced. Above The Law was an explosive blockbuster that launched Seagal’s career as an actor, writer, and star. His next film, Under Siege starring opposite Tommy Lee Jones, solidified Seagal's bankable star power. Seagal brings real world crime fighting experience to his work in Hollywood having been a fully-commissioned deputy in Louisiana for the past 20 years.
