According to Khaosod English, US actor Steven Seagal, best known for being featured in photographs of him shaking the hands of tailors throughout Thailand (as well as some films he apparently appeared in during the 1980's - so we've heard), has approached the Thai government about making two movies in Thailand that promote the country's "locations, cultures, arts and martial arts." National Reform Steering Assembly member, Alongkorn Pollabutr, told reporters, “Mr. Steven practices Buddhism, and he loves and respects His Majesty the King,” which apparently are the only requirements one needs. The last film Seagal made in Thailand was "Belly of the Beast" in 2003 featured Seagal playing an ex-CIA agent bent on finding his lost daughter. Apparently nobody in the Thai government has seen the movie as the plot involves a Thai military general being corrupt and using a fake terrorist kidnapping as an excuse to wipe out his competition giving him control over the drug trade in Thailand. Apparently someone at Cracked.com has seen the film and notes: With credentials like this, I can't wait to see what Seagal eventually releases.
