Today's Steven Seagal-gasm!

Or would that be "Steven Seagasm"? Whatever. In news that made me slip out of my chair and painfully crack my chin on my desk, '90s action hero/demigod STEVEN SEAGAL is getting his own reality show! In which he's a real cop! In real Louisiana! REALLY!
Apparently Seagal has been working on and off as a deputized officer in Louisiana's Jefferson Parish County Sheriff's department for the last 20 years (?!?), and starting in 2009 will star in a reality show documenting his exploits on A&E, fantastically entitled Steven Seagal: Lawman. From Variety...

"I decided to work with A&E on this series now because I believe it's important to show the nation all the positive work being accomplished here in Louisiana," Seagal said of the new venture.

Seagal "helps fight crime because he cares about the community," said Robert Sharenow, A&E's senior veep of nonfiction and alternative programming.

NO SHIT, SHERLOCK! (Sidenote: "No Shit, Sherlock!" would be a great name for a detective show.) I think Steven Seagal has pretty much proven that he "cares for the community" and "fights crime" in such cinematic feats of awesomosity as Hard to Kill, Fire Down Below and Under Siege, so don't fucking insult me, Robert. Plus, I believe it was the Portland Motherfucking Mercury who devoted an ENTIRE ISSUE to Steven Seagal, so in the future it may be a good idea not to fucking treat us like we're children. Or else maybe I need to do this to you...
