    Peter Sellers used to do the martial arts thing. Brought in his instructor for a session at the Toronto Bouchercon, I think it was. Not sure if he's still doing that, what level he achieved, or if he's even writing anymore. Not sure he was especially tough, either. Just a noir fiction writer who worked out doing martial arts.

      I know at least one crime writer who's a tough guy. Joe Lansdale is a
      member of two martial arts halls of fame. He runs a martial arts school
      where he teaches the style he invented. I've seen him in action, and I sure
      wouldn't want him to use those martial arts on me.
