Seagal mulls run for Arizona governor

After starring in action films and launching his own reality television show, actor Steven Seagal might have a third act in mind: Running for governor of Arizona.

The “Under Siege” actor said in an interview with local news outlet KNXV-TV that he’s open to the idea.

“I suppose I would remotely consider it but probably I would have a lot more other…a lot of other responsibilities that may be more important to address,” he said.

Seagal said he had discussed the possibility with Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the conservative star with whom he’s teamed up to launch a reality television show, “Steven Seagal — Lawman: Maricopa County." Seagal is active in conservative politics, and appeared at a Tea Party conference in Arizona early last year.
