Steven Seagal heaps praise on Dominicans (Update)

Update- Seagal was not in “Lethal Weapon”

La Romana.- Steven Seagal was delighted by the beauty, the food, the investment facilities and the treatment by the Dominicans.

The famous American actor spent several days in the country, where he “enjoyed, got to know and get the most out of it” during his short stay, anticipating that he will soon return to follow up on the efforts started as an investor.

Seagal, 69, said he was delighted with the treatment, the respectful manner and “the moderate fanaticism” with which he labeled the Dominicans.

Accompanied by the Dominican businessman Miguel Ángel González, his host, the actor was surprised by the way in which the Dominicans requested permission to take a photo with him and approached him with respect, admiration and without invading his privacy.

The famous actor announced that he is willing to invest 300 million dollars in the country’s film industry and other tourist areas.

Mel Gibson was in lethal weapon all four of them and I don’t see how anybody could get confused with Danny Glover and Steven Seagal, that is really hard for me to believe????

I’ve always had a high opinion of Steven Seagal, I have most of his movies and have enjoyed watching them over the years. My nephew is an instructor in Aikido and also admires Steven Seagal. I support Steven Seagal in all his humanitarian efforts…

The article quotes him as stating he would be “willing to”. That is a long way from intending to. “Willing” yes, if he could, which he can’t, and probably isn’t, so the statement is likely little more than PR. Aside from that, even if he knew people, he would have to present a very compelling reason for any production company to do so. Investing is a business, not a hobby or charity, which in fact, he’d be better off donating money or resources than investing.

Segal doesn’t even have 30 million! His net worth is only 16million, so he can probably only afford himself to invest 1/4 of his net worth, if that.

Love it there. I’m dating a beautiful Dominican. However, it being an island with limited resources and jobs – a few tend to get “creative”. I had a kidnapping plot foiled against me by local police. Or gang members. Pick a label. The National Police escorted me to the airport. Jealous neighbors of my girlfriends parents as I helped with bills, groceries, helping with getting running water in, fixing their family vehicle get running, etc. They told me not to return without 2 armed guards. But, they can get bought off – no? Beautiful place but they will try and get you for a simple ticket which will end up a few hundred dollars. Don’t want to pay? You will when you see your cell meant for four and there’s 20 angry yelling sweaty dudes greeting you. You’ll probably tip them for not putting you in there. Saw it first hand. Love the people. Beautiful place. Just be careful

He damn sure doesn’t have 300 million. Training in Aikido I have no respect for someone who turns thier back on the people taking ukemi . He doesnt bow or even gives thanks. Watch his videos and see for yourself. Plus hes a person that is now a citizen of Russia trying to get around paying a fine. 300 million??? Riggghhht
