Steven Seagal: Don't Rent to Him

Always hated this guy. Always:

Three years ago, the star of numerous not quite straight-to-video cinema classics such as "Hard to Kill," "Marked for Death" and "Exit Wounds" contacted the villa's owner, identified only as Edeltraud V., about renting the property. Offering €30,000 in rent for an eight-month stay, she accepted and Seagal and crew moved in for the winter.

Fast forward to 2004 and Edeltraud is still, to use the title of one of Seagal's own films, "Out for Justice" and still paying the price for the martial arts star's stay at her home. The landlady has once again appeared before a court in Berlin this week to demand damages of €170,000 from Seagal for what has been called the wanton destruction of the property.

It is alleged that Seagal and his crew went on a riot throughout the villa and "disassembled" doors, wooden flooring and wallpaper. It is also claimed that the "Under Siege" star and friends ignored the lavatory and urinated every where but.

...

The whole sorry business, she says, has in fact had damaging consequences on her own reputation and business. The villa was due to house superstar Tom Cruise while he films "Mission: Impossible 3" in Berlin but now, possibly due to the continuing furor over the Seagal case, Cruise has pulled out. The thought of staying in a house with alleged Seagal pee all over the walls clearly doesn't appeal.

I think that goes without saying.

Update: Steven Seagal, Master of the Pan Flute.

Well, okay, that's someone else. But Dave tips me that Steven Seagal, the first Westerner to earn a triple-degree black belt in Hubristic Ego, fancies himself a musician.

The music is very anodyne and pretty useless, but it is, alas, not as spectacularly awful as I'd hoped.

Can he sing? Not really. He sort of warbles in time, but again, I'm very disappointed that he's not worse.
