Kick the holiday blues and start off the new year with a bang with one of Hollywood’s greatest action heroes!

The holiday season is supposed to be a joyous time, even for those who don’t celebrate any particular holiday. It’s a time when we are all reminded to be a little kinder, a little gentler, a little more filled with the spirit of giving.

If you’re feeling that way, even if only a little, we have the cure for you: eight hours of finger-breaking, head-smashing, body-cleaving, shotgun-blasting action from Hollywood’s hardest zen warrior, Steven Seagal!

Chloë Moretz Looks to Join Charlize Theron in Dark Places
Chloë Moretz, at just 16 years old, has already participated in a bevy of thematically grim and/or bleakly titled work — films like Today You Die, The Amityville Horror, Wicked Little Things, Kick-Ass, Texas Killing Fields, Let Me In, Dark Shadows, and the upcoming Carrie remake. It stands to reason she'll sign on to join Charlize Theron in an adaptation of Gillian Flynn's Dark Places. If you've read the novel, Moretz is eyeing the role of Diondra. If you haven't read the novel, Moretz is still eyeing that same role.

'The Expendables 2' Stars' Unmanliest Movie Roles

Manly men like action movies. And steak. And watching oiled-up gym rats wrestle until one is pinned down and submits to the other's brawny powers. (We'd say that men "love" these things, but manly men find that word too submissive.)

So, when Sylvester Stallone gathered some of the biggest names (and biceps) of the action star pantheon together for an epic ensemble piece entitled "The Expendables" back in 2010, he forged the manliest merger since the X chromosome collided with the Y. And on the heels of that triumph, "The Expendables 2" will be flooding theaters with testosterone yet again on Aug. 17.

However, lest they get too big for their camouflaged britches, we'd like to point out that these seemingly stoic statues of resolve and fortitude have some, how shall we say, "sissy" moments in their cinematic closets. How about we take a once-over of their most unmanly moments, just for funsies?

Book Review: ‘Seagalogy: A Study of the Ass-Kicking Films of Steven Seagal’

Chicago – Vern started his career as one of those snarky critics who wrote in to Harry Knowles’ landmark and influential movie website Ain’t It Cool News. He became a regular writer for the site and his work there turned him into a very unorthodox author. His first book was a fantastic examination of, believe it or not, the career of Steven Seagal. Newly updated with a dozen new chapters about the recent adventures of his subject matter (the first printing was in 2008), “Seagalogy: A Study of the Ass-Kicking Films of Steven Seagal” is a funny, clever read for fans of the unusual action star and those who have never seen one of his movies. Vern’s movie-loving, smart, enjoyable writing makes this a more entertaining experience than Seagal himself has ever produced.

Don’t worry. This is not tongue-in-cheek nonsense. To say that Vern takes his subject matter seriously would be a Massive understatement.

Netflix Isn't Giving Up on First-Run Films Yet

A few months back, word came out that Netflix was wheeling and dealing behind the scenes to build up its young streaming video catalog. But given the relatively low revenue from the streaming catalog, content providers (movie studios) were reluctant to offer much in the way of content--so Netflix made them an offer.

Other venues, including the likely bankrupt BlockBbuster, would have exclusive access to movies in their first 28 days (at least from Warner Bros.). In exchange, Netflix would be able to secure a larger, deeper catalog to entice more customers and offer an improved service.

Despite a few scattered protests, the public has generally agreed that Netflix made the right decision. But the decision isn't exactly final--the relationship between Netflix and the studios is fluid, ebbing and flowing with changes in technology and consumer taste, and nothing's written in stone. That's why it's not totally surprising that Netflix negotiated

Steven Seagal Fires Back at Kayden Nguyen

The nasty court battle between Steven Seagal and former model Kayden Nguyen just got nastier.

The "Today You Die" actor's attorney says that Nguyen’s allegations are “ridiculous and absurd,” and without a “scintilla of truth.” In a statement, Marty Singer says he is “extremely confident this merit-less lawsuit will be dismissed.”

The encounter with Nguyen happened after Seagal hired her as an executive assistant in February. She filed a lawsuit that stated the actor “had been keeping two young female Russian ‘Attendants’ on staff who were available for his sexual needs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week,” and that he wanted her to replace one of the girls.

The lawsuit also claimed that Steven not only put his hands under Nguyen’s skirt but apparently tried to touch her breasts,, as well, on her first day of work. Singer says these claims are a “complete fabrication” planned by a “disgruntled” ex employee.

Steven Seagal has been a cop for 20 years?!?

  • Aol TV.
The world has officially been turned upside down for me.

Apparently when he's not making bad-ass movies like Under Siege, Exit Wounds, or my personal favorite, Today You Die, Steven Seagal is a Deputy Sheriff in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana and he's been doing it for 20 years.

Can it get better? Yes. Starting in December, A&E is sending cameras along with him.

Which Actors Turned Down The Expendables?

Moviehole is reporting that Sylvester Stallone tried to get many other actors for his "The Expendables" film, who ended up declining his offers. According to the site, Jackie Chan was asked to be in the movie and so was Wesley Snipes. And everyone knows that Jean Claude Van-Damme turned down the chance to be in "The Expendables" in favor of some straight-to-dvd flicks. But did you know that Steven Seagal was incredibly close to being cast. Apparently, Seagal was ripped off by producer Avi Lerner a few years back and Seagal now doesn't want to work with the man again. The two previously made "Mercenary for Justice," "Today You Die" and "Kill Switch" and if "The Expendables" went into development a year ago, Seagal would definitely have been on board. Finally, Bruce Willis was approached to appear in the film as well. And he accepted. Willis is now trying to

Hasselhoff vs. Anaconda This Saturday Night

Under normal circumstances an Anaconda sequel made for the Sci-Fi Channel would not elicit any degree of excitement of my part but when the sequel stars David Hasselhoff and the prospect of seeing "The Hoff" fight and possibly get eaten by a huge snake looms on the horizon, yeah, consider me officially interested.

Anaconda 3: The Offspring premieres this Saturday night on the Sci-Fi Channel (9/8 Central with the usual repeat four hours later) starring David Hasselhoff as a mercenary-for-hire who accepts a mission from a billionaire (John Rhys-Davies, a man's gotta eat) to capture a dangerous snake that could possibly help cure a terminal illness. Rounding out the cast are Crystal Allen, Patrick Regis, and Anthony Green in the prerequisite attractive female, token black, and handsome riverboat captain roles.

This installment in the Anaconda franchise is directed by Don E. FauntLeRoy. He knows something about dealing with coldblooded creatures having

Seagal Fights Lawsuit

Martial arts movie star Steven Seagal is fighting back after being sued for allegedly delaying the production of two action movies - by countersuing the production team. The Exit Wounds actor has been accused of arriving late to film sets, and then leaving early, as well as interfering with scripts and movie crews while shooting Today You Die and Mercenary by producers at Nu Image, Inc and Kill Master Productions. But Seagal is disputing the $14 million lawsuit, insisting he's the one who has been wronged. His attorneys have filed a fraud and breach of contract lawsuit against the producers, claiming the actor is owed $835,000 for his services. Seagal claims producers fabricated their claims against him to avoid paying him what he's owed.
