Steven Seagal hired to control U.S.-Mexico border

Steven Seagal has once again been hired to serve and protect, except it doesn't sound like there will be any reality show cameras following him around this time.

The "Above the Law" actor was sworn in this week as a deputy with the sheriff's office in Hudspeth County, Texas. The 59-year-old, who's no stranger to law enforcement and is also trained in Aikido, will help control the U.S.-Mexico border, according to the San Antonio Express.

The paper reports that Seagal reached out to the Hudspeth County Sheriff's Office himself about two months ago, seeking employment. Says Sheriff Arvin West, "Seagal is not in this for celebrity or publicity. He's like the rest of us that live down here; he has a sincere passion for his country and he wants to do more to help."

Friday's Top Five: Kevin Bacon

The new "Footloose" opens today, and young and nostalgic audiences will certainly flock to the film, tap their feet along to the soundtrack and watch today's version of Ren, Willard, and Ariel.

Still, it’s hard to accept this story of rebellious youth without associating it with Mr. Six Degrees himself, Kevin Bacon.

(Fans of the original Ren McCormack will have to settle for a voice appearance on a new episode of Robot Chicken. He’ll be teaching the Peanuts how to cut loose in stop motion on October 23, check your local listings.)
