    It seems action star Steven Seagal took a bit of, well, action in Russia last week.

    The 61-year-old actor, who over the years has developed various diplomatic relationships in the country, apparently made good use of them when he assisted U.S. congressional leaders traveling to Russia in their efforts to investigate the Boston marathon bombing.

    "There is nothing specific that could've been done that we can point to that, had it been done differently, would've prevented this," said Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher of California, who led the delegation, at a news conference in Moscow.

    As for Seagal, who has befriended Russian President Vladimir Putin, Rohrabacher noted, "We are very appreciative of the help he has given this congressional delegation to make sure we accomplished our mission."
