“From the opening scene, Austin Travis is shown to be an archetypal, flint eyed, knife wielding, US military hero - in other words, he is pretty much the same character Steven Seagal plays in all of his films.
Just in case the sight of Travis gunning down terrorists and rescuing hostages at the beginning of the film isn’t clear enough though, we have senior military staff expounding on his sheer studliness with lines like: “I know you wrote the book on assaulting hijacked aircraft!” The only problem is that Travis is normally used to attacking planes that have already landed, but this clearly isn’t an option in this case.”—The death of Austin Travis (Steven Seagal) in Executive Decision - Movie Deaths Database
“Mustain, 23, hasn’t pitched since high school and was prepared to report to the Georgia Force of the Arena Football League, but in a tryout with the White Sox, his fastball cracked 90 mph on the radar gun. “I haven’t played in eight years, which, my age, it’s going to be a little bit harder to get back into this,” Mustain said, according to 5News in Fayetteville, Ark. “As time goes I figured this would be my one shot at it, and why not? I’m going to take this shot. I’m going to give it everything I have and see where it goes.””—Former USC Trojans QB Mitch Mustain signs with Chicago White Sox - ESPN Chicago
