Day late and a dollar short - old news

 

A day is hardly old. I'm just super hyped about getting that Missouri and having Seagal captain it.

So they're pushing a look with yellow-tinted glasses and a ring beard, and the in-game avatar looks like so:

To fair, if you were going to add Elvis to the game, you'd go with the young Elvis.

They forgot to mention that it is Steven circa 1992.

I'd still go with a portrait resembling the person we're pushing in our ads.

Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the most self-conscious about their appearance of them all?

Not sure what you're trying to get at. Want to explain that one?

It's how he looked in Under Siege though. I duno, just doesn't seem strange to me. I'm sure if he could he'd be happy to look that way again for the ads. :trollface:

Steven Sea-gull?  That washed up "actor" who hasn't done a "movie" that wasn't straight to vid in 15 yrs?
 

W-w-w-why? What possible reason would there be to add him?

 

Does WG believe that using washed up and washed out actors will draw people this game?

 

 

I hear Lindsay Lohans not busy either...

 

No need...ill see myself out.

I'd go with either TTK's explanation, or that he specifically asked not to be depicted as a now very aged and over-the-hill actor.

Some actors, like James Doohan, managed to make their age work for them. Seagal..... not so much

Considering the fact that several news outlets have reported on him being in the game, thus giving WG free advertising ...

CG and photoshop can do a lot to affect a person's appearance. Hell, even a shave would've gone a long way. Or, simpler still, make the in-game avatar resemble the actor, just give him a black ringbeard.

Under Siege is a popular movie in Russia. That's pretty much it.

Under Siege took place on the USS Missouri right? That's what he looked like in the movie. Makes perfect sense to me.

Yeah it is what he looked like in the movie and it did take place on USS Missouri, hence the tie-in.

Liking or disliking Steven Seagal as an actor is completely personal. Liking or disliking a movie he is in is also completely personal. You can, like, dislike or be indifferent. The fact is that Steven has a very large following (including myself) so I like the idea his name and likeness are going to be in game. It really seems like if you dislike or are indifferent to him as an actor or his movies then you do not have to see him at all. Why make a big deal of this? Is there some sort of harm to WG or the players here?

 

I like his movies and acting as an action movie hero type. They are being repeated a lot on TV and I enjoy seeing them again, including his work on the "Big Mo". Being a part of the game is fine with me and does no harm to WG or players.

Exit Wounds (2001) and Half Past Dead (2002). Not to mention he starred in his own reality tv show Steven Seagal: Lawman (2009-13). He's also doing a new movie called Contract to Kill coming soon to theaters.

Say what you want about Seagal, but his originals were great action flicks. He definitely has gained some weight in recent years. The man is 54 years old though, so cut him some slack.

Maybe if his action niche wasn't martial arts, or if it was 40+ years ago. (John Wayne style)

 

Nowadays, mere age is no excuse for an action hero being out of shape, especially after The Expendables lol.

He wasn't a captain in that movie, he was a cook.  Should be wearing those scrubs, tbh.
