Steven Seagal officially re-entered the pop culture zeitgeist with the recent premiere of his A&E reality show 'Steven Seagal: Lawman,' which finds the former big-ticket action star getting his Miranda Rights on with unsuspecting delinquents (It must be so much cooler if when you get arrested, it's by Steven Seagal!).

The program could be looked at as a comeback vehicle of sorts for the pony-tailed tough guy, but contrary to popular belief, Seagal has not been collecting unemployment since his Hollywood stock plummeted several years back. In fact, Seagal has remained somewhat of a workhorse. You'd just have to pay close attention to the straight-to-DVD vaults to notice.
