Steven Seagal has revealed he might run for governor in Arizona.

The action movie star told a US TV news station that he would "consider" campaigning for political office.

Steven - known for 90s films such as Marked For Death, Out For Justice and Under Siege - already works as a reserve deputy sheriff.

He made the announcement about his possible election bid during an interview to promote the latest series of his reality TV show, Steven Seagal - Lawman.

The 61-year-old said he had already talked about the possibility of running for governor with Joe Arpaio, the sheriff of Arizona's Maricopa County, who the actor teamed up with for his show.
