Tom Sizemore Wants a Reality Show
The troubled Saving Private Ryan actor is working on a new show called Super Sizemore, which follows his numerous dates before a judge, his battle to become sober and his recent role as a father to twin boys.
The project is currently being shopped to networks, says the Hollywood Reporter, adding that Sizemore, 44, has been shooting footage for the past two years.
During that time, Sizemore has had numerous scuffles with the law. Last week he was ordered by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge to extend his stay in a live-in drug-treatment center by a month. Sizemore first entered the facility in July, for violating his probation for possession of methamphetamine by using a prosthetic penis to try and fake a drug test.
In other TV news, negotiations are said to be progressing on an Everybody Loves Raymond spinoff, to feature the character of Raymond's under-appreciated policeman brother Robert, played by Brad Garrett, who won an Emmy Sunday night.
Money is the main issue currently preventing a greenlight, though this could be resolved soon, The New York Times reports. Robert's wife Amy, his in-laws and his brother-in-law – actors Monica Horan, Fred Willard and Georgia Engel, and Chris Elliot, respectively – would round out the cast, says the paper.
