Awesome Story of the Day: Steven Seagal Attacked John Leguizamo to Prove He Was the Alpha Male on a Movie Set

(Video courtesy of YouTube/QTV)

And the Steven Seagal stories just keep coming. Not sure how we missed this gem from a couple weeks ago, but apparently “The Glimmer Man” took exception to John Leguizamo not respecting his alpha male status on the set of Executive Decision back in 1996 so he attacked the 5′ 8″ 160 lb actor to prove who was in charge.

Leguizamo recalled the story during a recent appearance on QTV.

“We were in rehearsals for Executive Decision. I’m playing his Master Sargeant and we come in for rehearsals and he says, ‘I’m in command. Everything I say is law. Anybody doesn’t agree?’ I was like, ‘Bwahahaha.’ I started cracking up because he sounded like a retard and he came up and he Taekwondo’ed my ass against the brick and he [hit me with his elbow],” Leguizamo recalled. “He’s six-foot-five and he caught me off guard and knocked all of the air out of me and I was like, ‘Why?! Why?!’ I really wanted to say how big and fat he was and that he runs like a girl, but I didn’t because all I could say was, ‘Why?!’ Why’d he slam me against the wall? We were rehearsing. What’s the bid deal? Why can’t I call him names? If I can’t let it out it’s going to build like a cancer.”

Aparently Seagal isn’t taking to kindly to the fact that Leguizamo has spoken about the incident in his stand-up routine and during recent media appearances and now the “Hard to Kill” actor has him “Marked for Death.”

“His publicist told my publicist that he wants to punch me out, but he can’t because he’s going to be in jail soon, so I’ll be fine. He is [going to jail] isn’t he? That’s what I heard. I better stop talking about him. I thought he was getting put away for a while.”

This isn’t the first time that Seagal, a notorious bully, has tried to assert his dominance over co-stars and stuntmen. Stephen Quadros recalled a bizarre run-in he had with the “Lawman” star on the set of “Exit Wounds” in 2001 while working as a stunt and fight coordinator on the film.

“I had heard all the horror stories about how he would hurt actors and stunt performers, dislocated shoulders, kick guys in the nuts to see if they were wearing cups, etc. I had heard about Gene LeBell. So 2 weeks before we started shooting I was training DMX on the soundstage one and Seagal showed up and was throwing a few guys around on some mats on the other side of the stage. So I waited till he was finished and walked over and introduced myself. I figured why wait, he’s going to see me around anyway. But I wasn’t wearing a cup. I had left it in L.A.!!! So I stood kind of sideways just in case he decided to suddenly kick me in the family jewels. During the conversation he moved to where he was standing square with me. So while I was chatting with him I slowly moved back to where I was semi sideways again. He moved again to square up with me. I’m thinking, “This is not happening.” So I switch to where my right foot was forward, turning sideways again the other direction. I was doing this very subtly. He had that ‘look’ in his eyes as he squared up with me again. I smiled, folded my hands in front of my groin and said I had to get going and walked away. It was VERY weird.

Another time I told him I worked as commentator for the Pride Fighting Championships in Japan. I was wearing the Grupo Chute Boxe t-shirt that Vanderlei Silva had given to me after he defeated Bob Schreiber in the January 2000 Pride. Seagal told me he didn’t think the fighters in Pride were very good and that he couldn’t understand why Kazushi Sakuraba kept winning because he thought he was not very good either. I obviously didn’t agree but felt it was not the time or place to get into it with Seagal. So I said, “But at least they test themselves on a regular basis.” Then I told him I had heard that he had a student who he thought could defeat Sakuraba. He said he did. I said if he needed help putting the match together I may be able to help him but his guy might be asked to get some experience before going to Japan. We never spoke on the subject after that. I asked him if he would like for me to conduct an interview with him for Black Belt magazine. He declined.

I kind of steered clear of him for the most part. But one time he came on the set and started walking right towards me. I thought, “Shit, I don’t have my cup on!” So he walks close to me and my radar was up. Then he grabbed my wrist. I am not an Aikido guy and I’m not saying I am better than Seagal at wrist locks but my first instructor was Korean and had taught us Hapkido which included many techniques that were similar to Aikido. So I reversed his grab to were my hand was on his wrist. He grabbed the same wrist with his other hand. I reversed him again. This little game went on for about a minute. I was really trying not to upstage the guy because on a movie set it’s a no win situation to do that to the star, especially him. But I for sure was not going to let him get me into a compromising position physically. I know guys he has hurt to the point of having to have surgery. He suddenly stopped and pointed at me and said, “You’re good.” I didn’t know what to say so I just smiled. He walked away.”

Leguizamo better watch himself or Seagal might slap him with a cease and desist letter like he fired off to “Judo” Gene LeBell after he choked out 7th Dan in Aikido. Apparently he didn’t want news getting out that he shit his pants and threatened to sue LeBell if he spoke about the incident. Your secret is safe with us, sensei.

Ariel Helwani and Karyn Bryant need to ask him about the incident the next time they interview the delusional old coot.

stories stories stories to trash this guy. gets old. like i give a shit about a story told by john leguizamo. he was probably psyched that seagal was getting bigger in the media so he could tell this dumbass story about some shit on a movie set years ago. i don't believe a word of that story. and even so, who gives a shit? haters surface and spawn everywhere. seagal is an eccentric for sure, but he's a badass martial artist, i mean a really badass martial artist, and he clearly commands the respect of a few of the best martial artists in the world. silva, machida, etc. i wonder if fael is behind the seagal hatred movement??

who cares what louiseagamo says he prob need to get the bitch smack he got douchy girly mouth. take off couple arms too.
Bandy13- October 27, 2011 at 8:32 am
Rwilson, true.he gets a check and stays in the spotlight.
yet he got mixed up with the wrong people and then becomes a rat. Lied about cia connections, lied about his whole childhood and training. Im not taking anything away from him in his art, but just the glory hound lying sack that he is, kills me. We didnt talk about tito on here, can we please go by the same rules with segal? He offers nothing to the mma community beside taking credit for a kick that was invented by caveman to get women away from them.

someone needs to do a re-enactment of the quadros story right now. I bet everybody else watching was like 'why the fuck do seagal and this quatros guy keep spinning around while they're talking? quatros grabbing his nuts now?'
Stak40- October 27, 2011 at 7:13 am
Sounds like unless you can actually fuck Seagal up in a fight you need to be strapped just to be in his presence.
jake8267- October 27, 2011 at 5:54 am
@Pirate - The guys at Black House already know that Seagal is a giant worthless douche. They just enjoy playing with peoples minds with all this "He trained me" bull while giving Seagal a bigger head than he already has.

Seagal broke Sean Connery's wrist on the set training him for "Never Say Never Again."

relax ol'stick. If it bothers you that much then maybe you should take a break and smoke a little "hefer". If this article accentuates Stevens " Bat shit craziness" then you should totally endourse it and hope that the members at black house read cage potatoe, which they should.
RSparrow- October 26, 2011 at 10:54 pm
Tell me how this is an "Awesome Story of the Day!"... All it proves is how big of a douchebag this guy can be and for you to sit here and condone it is fucking retarded. Whoever wrote this article needs to be punished... we aren't in middle school. This guy loves attention, and youre giving to to him, at the same time calling it AWESOME. Come on guys.. first this JayT guy, then this.... you have gems for articles, then we run into this garbage. Quit giving this fuck any credit and attention in the mma world. He's never competed. Peace.
jfjjfjff- October 26, 2011 at 10:15 pm
jesus, what a horrible interviewer. he has a celebrity dishing dirt and rather than keep going after more details he backs off it like a little bitch.
smellypiratehooker- October 26, 2011 at 8:25 pm
I think that if he kicks people in the nuts to check if there wearing a cup, then someone should kick him in the ass to check if he is wearing a diaper.
RwilsonR- October 26, 2011 at 8:24 pm
The sad thing is, Bandy, that he has apparently been given several reality checks, but still lives in his own delusional world.
Bandy13- October 26, 2011 at 7:51 pm
Although the ten karate chops to the chest followed by the clothesline he does in every movie is one of my favorite things to laugh about, i still think someones needs to reality check him

Good stuff from Quadros
Sodak- October 26, 2011 at 7:31 pm
So whats the story? he tried to get tough with Judo gene and got choked out? HaHaHa he was probably surprised when gene came at him and then didn't go flying off through the air doing flips after a wrist grab. Aikido give me a break.
macreadysshack- October 26, 2011 at 7:22 pm
Fuck, I can't edit that into a countDOWN. I hate how CP works their interwebz. I wonder if Seagal walked into Blackhouse and said, 'okay, listen you fuckers. I'm in charge. Anybody have a problem with that?'
Is Seagull really going to jail?
skeletor- October 26, 2011 at 7:21 pm
I don't know why everyone has such a problem with him. Sure it's kind of weird that he wears shooting glasses everywhere but I think he just likes being prepared. The man has been through allot. I saw a documentary about him in 1992. The man single handedly took out an entire group of terrorists who took over an american battleship. It was amazing and he was only a cook then.
So it's easy to talk shit but the man is a legit American hero. And no one should forget that.
macreadysshack- October 26, 2011 at 7:18 pm
This is why all you pussies need laws to protect you. Alpha male in da house.
PS. Does anyone else doubt that the joint lock thing went on for a MINUTE? This guy claims to have trained but what I've learned is that the only thing that makes time go by slower than an earthquake is fighting. Thirty seconds would be ridiculous unless they were just doing some push-hands shit. Yeah, I know. Who fucking cares? I don't in 1 . . . 2 . . . 3
