CLEVELAND, Nov. 18 (UPI) -- Actor Steven Seagal is steeped as much in spirituality as he is in the slam-bang world of his Hollywood action movies.

Cleveland television station WEWS-TV interviewed Seagal this week and reported Saturday that he is a serious practitioner of Buddhism who contends he was born clairvoyant and "a healer."

"I was born very different," he said.

Seagal is currently doing something different; he's touring Europe as a guitarist with his blues band Thunderbox.
