The bizarre trend of celebrities from athletes to actors is continuing as Russia appoints American action film star Steven Seagal as their envoy to the US. The move was announced by the Russia Foreign Ministry on its Facebook page.

The statement described Seagal's portfolio in the unpaid position would be to "facilitate relations between Russia and the United States in the humanitarian field, including cooperation in culture, arts, public and youth exchanges."

Seagal is most well known for his starring roles in several hit action films throughout recent years where he utilizes his large physique and his martial arts skills to take down bad guys. Russian president Vladimir Putin, who is also an accomplished martial artist, has that in common with Seagal.

Russia granted Seagal Russian citizenship in 2016 and since then he has been a vocal proponent of the Russian president's policies. This includes the 2014 Russian annexation of Crimea and Seagal has also criticized the U.S. government. Citing national security reasons last year, Ukraine banned Seagal from entering the country for five years.

lol @ how fat, inept, cumbersome, idiotic and embarrassing Seagal has always been, but now he's just a big, swollen, fat, stupid clown. Exactly like Trump.

Seagal is a bad joke. An embarrassment to martial arts on many levels. A pathological liar and a known bully on set, just ask John Leguizamo. And he’s buddies with Putin. Lovely. And what is it with z list “ celebrities” hanging out with assholes anyway? First Hanoi Jane, then Rodman and Kim Jong Un. Dafuq? Seems a pretty autistic way to regain the public eye when you can’t even get a gig with a pro wrestling company anymore.
