Everyone probably thought Steven Seagal was just a washed up overweight direct-to-DVD movie star. You’re half right. However, when he’s not sitting around being way too serious, he’s a part time MMA master. He works with the likes of Lyoto Machida and Anderson Silva. If anyone caught UFC 129 they saw Machida put Randy Couture into permanent retirement with an insane cane-style kick. You only see that shit in movies. That or when you watch someone trained by Steven Fucking Seagal fight. Good times. I think he’s making a come back, Machida even went out of his way to immediately thank Seagal after the fight. Looks like front kicks to the face are the new thing in MMA. Thank you, Steven Seagal, first you gave us Above the Law, now this.

Is Nothing Sacred?

So new screens have been released for the upcoming remake of the 1984 classic The Karate Kid. Instead of staring a scruffy Italian kid to play the lead, the underdog in the story is played by Jaden Smith, son to none other than Hancock. I mean Will Smith. And instead of getting a wise Japanese man (Ken Watanabe, anyone?) to play the teacher, they signed international sell-out Jackie Chan. It’s no longer based in the states, but instead will take place in Beijing, China. Why a random black kid is over in China and why Jackie Chan decides to train him is beyond me. I hope this movie tanks, but not before it revitalizes interest in the original trilogy. The movie with Hillary Swank doesn’t count because that was a piece of anus. Follow the source link for on set pictures of filming.
