Steven Seagal Appointed by Russia as Special Envoy to the U.S.

The action-movie star Steven Seagal has played a former C.I.A. agent, a hit man and a killer of criminals. On Saturday, Russian officials tapped him for another role: special representative to improve relations between the United States and Russia.

The Russian Foreign Ministry announced the appointment on Facebook, saying his mission will include promoting “relations between Russia and the United States in the humanitarian field, including cooperation in culture, arts, public and youth exchanges.”

In a tweet on Sunday, Mr. Seagal said that he was “deeply humbled and honoured” by the appointment. “I hope we can strive for peace, harmony and positive results in the world,” he said. “I take this honour very seriously.”

“I’ve always had a very strong desire to do all I can to help improve Russian-American relations,” he told the Kremlin-backed television station RT. “I have worked tirelessly in this direction for many years unofficially and I am now very grateful for the opportunity to do the same thing officially.”

1. The fact that you had to post "not from the Onion"

says a lot about where we are today - that gap between satire and reality is getting smaller and smaller.

4. I guess he had to do something,

being that “The Love Boat” is no longer on tv to use has been, washed up actors with time on their hands. For the record I was never a fan of him, or the movies he WAS in. Seagal is a 🤡!
