On the big screen, we’ve seen Steven Seagall use his sizeable knowledge of martial arts to save the world on so many occasions it’s not even worth keeping count. He’s now apparently being offered the opportunity to apply his skills in the real world, with a reported job offer of training the Serbian special police forces in the Japanese martial art of Aikido.

The 63 year old actor recently paid a three-day visit to the Serbian capital of Belgrade, and there he met with the country’s Prime Minister, Aleksandar Vucic, and the pro-Russian president, Tomislav Nikolic. He was there to receive an award for humanitarian work that has benefitted the state, but talks apparently have led to this eyebrow-raising offer.

Sinisa Mali, the mayor of Belgrade, said: “When you have such a famous star coming to Serbia, who loves our country and our people, our desire is to have him back again.”

However, it’s not clear whether Seagal will be able to take up the offer, as he has already committed to a busy schedule of filming in 2016.

Serbia has traditionally been a Russian ally, but the current government is EU-leaning, seeking membership of the political and economic bloc and is facing strong opposition from pro-Russian nationalists.

While on his visit, Seagal received the aforementioned award from the capital’s Brothers Karic Foundation, an honour once bestowed upon the current Russian president Vladimir Putin.

The head of the Karic family, Bogoljub Karic, was granted asylum in Russia after he fled Serbia when the previous administration charged him corruption and embezzlement to the tune of millions of dollars in state-distributed funds.
