Russia wants Steven Seagal to be the face of its weapons industry

On deadly ground.

RUSSIA IS LOOKING at actor Steven Seagal to be the face of its weapons industry as it guns* for first place on the world arms market.

Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said the action movie star may head up an international marketing campaign to place the media Under Siege** to promote the Degtarev arms plant.

He accompanied Seagal on a visit to the plant there today. We wonder were they On Deadly Ground***?

Rogozoin said:

You’re ready to fight American (manufacturers) with your teeth and your intellect, and if Americans are prepared to promote and support you, that says we’re learning new ways to work on corporate warfare markets.

Russian officials are big fans of Seagal, who met President Vladimir Putin in March and claimed to have set up a meeting with Rogozin for a Congressional delegation last week.

* - terrible pun, sorry

** – again, sorry

*** - really, really sorry
