Action star and martial arts expert Steven Seagal may be following in Arnold Schwarzenegger's footsteps and head for Phoenix and Arizona's top office. For real! The "Under Siege" actor, ever so popular in the early 1990s, told ABC affiliate KNXV-TV that he is currently mulling over a shot at the state's highest office.

The ponytailed former Hollywood heavyweight is no stranger to the Grand Canyon State, as he shot the new reality series "Steven Seagal -- Lawman: Maricopa County" with controversial Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

But that's not all! The film's up-and-coming star Oscar Isaac was named best actor, and the filmmaking brothers took the award for best director. Lookout, Scorsese!
