"I don't have rage. I'm a happy guy. You see this face? This is a happy face."
The second season of True Justice kicked off with a bang — and a thud, crunch, slice, thwack, and several booms — on Friday, with Elijah Kane (Steven Seagal) and his new team racking up some serious numbers. In celebration of the return of Seagal's own personal brand of, ahem, justice to ReelzChannel, we decided this would be a great time to look back at his action-packed movie career. Put on your gi, focus your chi, and help us choose Seagal's best movies.

Sometimes the first few episodes of a new season in a series can get bogged down in exposition and setting the scene for the next dozen episodes, but other times a season premiere starts off with fast-paced, hardcore, adrenaline-pumping action. Tonight's premiere episode of True Justice, the second season of Steven Seagal's action-filled cop drama, definitely belongs in the latter category. For anyone unconvinced that tonight's episode will bring the action, we thought we'd go over some of its stats.
Number of Explosions: 4
Number of Rounds Fired: 220 (give or take)
Number of Bad Guys' Bones Breaking Audibly: At least 2
Number of Knife Fights: 1.5
Number of Jaw-Dropping, OMG, This-Changes-Everything Moments: 1

A mysterious package. A variety of interested parties. And only one man stands in their way.
After enjoying a few action movie hits at the box office, Steven Seagal started appearing in a string of straight-to-video action flicks after 2003's Half Past Dead was panned by critics and mostly ignored at the box office. The movies kept Seagal working and his fanbase (mostly) satisfied, and started with 2003's The Foreigner.
Seagal stars as Jonathan Cold, a former deep cover agent, or "foreigner," who now works freelance delivering high-risk packages. When Jonathan is hired to take a mysterious package from France to Germany, he soon learns that there is a swarm of different factions that want to get their hands on it. Shot entirely in Poland, The Foreigner is one of the few of Seagal's "strictly home entertainment"-era movies to get a sequel — 2005's Black Dawn.the foreigner

There's going to be plenty of crime-drama action this winter. The second season of Steven Seagal’s original series True Justice will premiere Friday, January 4, 2013 at 9pm ET/ 6pm PT and 11pm ET/ 8pm PT. Season two begins with Elijah Kane’s (Steven Seagal) Special Investigations Unit facing the aftermath of an intense gun battle — one that leaves the fate of Kane’s entire team in jeopardy. The second season features 13 new heart-pounding episodes premiering Fridays at 9pm ET/ 6pm PT and again at 11pm ET/ 8pm PT.
Joining the action in season two are a few new faces, including CIA operative Marcus Mitchell, played by Adrian Holmes (Elysium, Red Riding Hood), who recruits Kane to work as an operative to take out a high-level target that the CIA cannot go after in the traditional way. Mitchell helps to lead Kane into the target’s inner circle, but only then will the identity of the target be revealed. Season two also stars Lochlyn Munro (The Company You Keep) as Mark Simms, Jesse Hutch (The Butterfly Effect) as Johnny Garcia and Tanaya Beatty (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1) as Jessica Finch.
To get viewers ready for the new season of True Justice, we also have two marathons of season one airing just in time to ring in the new year. In addition, viewers will get a chance to see several Steven Seagal movies airing ahead of the season two premiere. Strap in and get ready for a long holiday weekend filled with epic action.

"I'm just a cook."
Back in the early 1990s, Steven Seagal was slowly becoming an action star with movies like 1988's Above the Law and 1990's Hard to Kill, but it was 1992's Under Siege that made Seagal a legitimate star. The movie saw Seagal play former Navy SEAL Casey Ryback, who works as a cook on the USS Missouri after losing his security clearance. But when an ex-CIA operative (Tommy Lee Jones) and a rogue Naval commander (Gary Busey) take control of the Missouri with the intent purpose of stealing the ship's Tomahawk missiles, there's only one man that can stop them. You guessed it, Seagal.
Directed by Andrew Davis, who would go on to direct The Fugitive next (and earn Jones an Oscar), Under Siege earned $156 million worldwide and spawned a sequel, 1995's Under Siege: Dark Territory, which sees Ryback have to protect his niece (Katherine Heigl) from a computer hacker (Eric Bogosian) and a group of mercenaries. Both movies air back-to-back tonight on Reelz, starting at 6PM EST/3PM PST for Under Siege and 8PM EST/5PM PST for Under Siege 2.under siege

"It's not the years...it's the mileage."
Though the novelty of The Expendables' all-star cast of '80s and '90s action heroes wore off somewhat by the time The Expendables 2 hit theaters, the resurgence of aging tough-guy actors continues with the success of Liam Neeson's Taken 2, which beat down the competition this past weekend. And there's more to come. Ah-nuld's getting back in the game with The Last Stand and Bruce Willis is dusting off John McClane for a fifth go-round in A Good Day to Die Hard. But, not all aging actors can continue to pull off the kind of tough-guy roles they played in their youth. Tell us which over-50 actors still have what it takes to beat up the bad guys and come back for more.

When most people think of Transformers actor Shia LaBeouf they probably don't think of legendary action-star Steven Seagal but when LaBeouf was a kid, it was Seagal who the burgeoning actor wanted to be.
In an interview with Parade Magazine, LaBeouf, who stars in this week's Lawless, talked about his movie idol.
I would watch Steven Seagal movies and go into my room and try to beat my little teddy bear up, thinking I was him. And I would pull my curls back into a Seagal ponytail—which looked ridiculous, but I tried!
This isn't the first time LaBeouf has talked about wanting a ponytail like Seagal, who stars in Reelz's original drama True Justice. In 2010, the actor talked about being a young Jewish kid with "Brillo pad" hair and wanting to look like Seagal.
Seagal was big for me. He had, like, three years where he was untouchable... His ponytail was the whole thing for me. I was a 12-year-old Jew. Looking at that ponytail, you wanted one.
Of course we all know it takes more than just a ponytail to be like Seagal. It also takes a bit of ass-whooping skills. For LaBeouf and others who want to be like Seagal, we recommend watching this clip after the jump: MORE >> Posted 08.27.12 by reelz
