Fallen star Tom Sizemore is hoping to stage a major comeback after battling a series of legal and drug problems - with a new TV drama. The Black Hawk Down star has been offered the chance to bounce back after a career-threatening jail spell as the star of a groundbreaking new action/adventure internet and TV series called The Acquirer. Sizemore will play a mysterious ex-CIA agent opposite the show's director and star Matt Schulze, who plays a master thief. The actor says, "I've been away from filming for a while now, and it feels great getting back in front of the cameras again. "Matt is a powerful presence in this series, both in front of and behind the camera, and I am truly grateful that he has welcomed me to The Acquirer so openly. "I plan on giving him, and my fans, the best I have to offer. I'm back, and I'm having a great time." And Schulze says, "I am extremely happy to welcome Tom as a series regular on The Acquirer. He's a great talent who brings intensity and determination to every role he plays." The first episode of the multi-media series, which airs in the U.S. later this month (Mar08), was shot in Paris, France and the globe-trotting action drama is now heading for locations in San Francisco, California and Rome, Italy. Sizemore was released early from a 16-month prison sentence in December (07). He was incarcerated for eight months after violating his probation in relation to a 2004 methamphetamine conviction.
