Steven Seagal is set to launch a charity to help provide underprivileged youngsters in Britain with guitars.
Steven Seagal is tough outside, yet light inside. The Hollywood action man, who is well known for his aikido in the big screen movies, is launching a charity which aims to distribute guitars to needy kids.
The initiative reportedly will be administered by Ciro's Pizza Pomodoro. On his new project, the actor commented, "Music is the language of the gods that can bring all people together. What better starting point than learning to play the guitar."

Steven, who's been in film industry since the year 1990s, has at least 4 more film projects to come, "Flight of Fury" and "Once Upon A Time In The Hood", both to be released this year, plus "Prince of Pistols" and "Judas Times" which are coming in 2008.
