Steven Seagal may just follow in the footsteps of fellow action star Arnold Schwarzenegger. On January 5, Politico reported that Seagal is considering a run for office. He wants to be the next governor of Arizona.

The famous action hero has close ties in law enforcement, having been deputized in Arizona, New Mexico, Louisiana and Texas. He currently works closely with Maricopa County Sheriff Joseph Arpaio and acts as law enforcement for his A&E reality series, "Steven Seagal - Lawman: Maricopa County."

Seagal had a previous stint with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Department in Louisiana and that is where the "Steven Seagal - Lawman" series began.

When asked about a possible run for governor, Steven Seagal replied, "Joe Arpaio and I were talking about me running for governor of Arizona. I would remotely consider it, but I have a lot of other responsibilities that may be more important to address."

If elected as Arizona governor, citizens can expect a focus on immigration reform. Seagal has been very vocal about his wishes to increase border security.
