Hollywood tough guy Steven Seagal has had his blues gig cancelled at a festival in Estonia following an uproar in this formerly-Soviet ruled Baltic state over the star's pro-Russia views, the authorities said Tuesday.
Seagal is reported to back Russian President Vladimir Putin's March annexation of Ukraine's Crimean peninsula and regards him as a personal friend.

Maybe he can share a plane with Jesse “the Douche” Ventura.
nah... both have ego’s larger that Jupiter.
Steven Segal has gigs?
Lay down with a dog, get up with fleas...
Seagal hasn't been a "Hollywood tough guy" for a long, long time, unless you're talking about it being tough for him to button his pants.
Seagal has been reduced to gigs???
The last time I saw him in a movie he was killed off in the first 10 minutes and wasn’t missed.
He's a bad "Tough Guy" actor & communist sympathizer.
I remember reading that he used to beat his ex-wife, Kelly LeBrock. I liked “Under Siege”, but Seagal always gave me the creeps.
Is it catching?
Is he still wearing Eddie Munster’s haircut ?
Remember Hollywood Squares? Doing blues gigs in Estonia is for the washed up “actors” who can’t couldn’t make it on Hollywood Squares.
Interesting picture of him and Putin at the website link. He towers over Putin.
Segal likes tough guy Putin?
How come he doesn’t like Obama?
Maybe Obama and Segal could go on a nice bicycle ride together, with matching cute bicycle helmets?
I loved Steven Seagal movies when I was 14, 15. They were all exactly the same movie, but had everything a 14 year old boy could want (one who has HBO and Cinemax and parents who didn’t care what he watched).
I thought he was just a cook.
See, that movie came out when I was 16. I had outgrown him by then.
I’d imagine Segal would like Putin due to Putin being a world ranked martial artist.
Yawn. Another entertainer pretending to be a person of significance.
Seagull is already not very well liked in the martial arts world. Not too long ago over cocktails I asked one very famous and classy old school martial artist (to go unnamed) what he thought of Seagull ... he said .. “he’s an a$$hole”. Judo Gene Lebell has already shown Seagull what he thinks of him too.
Still not sure if the feud between these two is real or just a publicity stunt;
His rivalry with Jean Claude Van Damme goes back quite a few years: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=THsEWTClnjc
I’ve never heard him play, but I subscribe to a couple of guitar mags (yes, paper!!!) and a couple of years ago he was profiled.
He thinks himself quite the player.
