He's played everything from ex-cia agents to ex-Navy Seals. Here, we recall some of the pony-tailed slugger's most baffling moments
Did you know that Steven Seagal can speak fluent Japanese? He can. And that's not where the wavy-handed action star's accomplishments end. He's a musician with two albums on general release and a third, bluesy number on its way; a lawman who is a reserve deputy sheriff in Jefferson parish, Louisiana; and a businessman who markets a range of essential oils, and has even produced his own brand of aftershave and energy drink, the latter a pungent brew containing ginseng, guarana and Tibetan goji berries. He's even said to have taken time out from his busy schedule selling the neon-tinged liquid to write to the prime minister of India and demand better rights for cows.

Mostly I've been just motoring along, not too sad about having missed Sundance this year until it occurred to me what a jump start it gave me on this current Oscar race -- not too mention my own rooting interests at the film bitch awards. Whoa unto us who cannot afford a week in the snowy Utah mountains. I'm dying to see Vera Farmiga's directorial debut but otherwise I have poured over precious few Sundance articles. There was too much Oscar noise this week to give it much thought. But here's what Sundance went for with a passion.

Tim Blake Nelson hosted the awards ceremony tonight for the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. Taking the top prize was Drake Doremus‘ Like Crazy, with Winter’s Bone winning grand jury prize (dramatic) last year. We weren’t too hot on the film, and surprised something great like Sean Durkin‘s Martha Marcy May Marlene or Mike Nichols‘ Take Shelter didn’t grab it.
