Troubled Tom Sizemore isn't letting a possible jail spell get him down - he's signing up for roles in a number of movies in the hope he stays a free man.

The BLACK HAWK DOWN star faces a possible four-year jail term for domestic violence against onetime Hollywood Madam Heidi Fleiss and will hear of his fate in court in October (03).

But the actor is determined to continue acting as if he'll stay free by squeezing two independent dramas into his schedule.

Sizemore will star as a thuggish father in PIGGY BANKS, which begins a four-week shoot in Salt Lake City, Utah, today (25AUG03), and next month (SEP03), he'll take on THE HEART IS DECEITFUL ABOVE ALL THINGS.

The latter project is a film, adapted from a J.T. LeROY short story, directed by Italian wildchild actress Asia Argento, who will also star in the film as a prostitute.

Sizemore was found guilty by a Los Angeles jury of seven counts of domestic violence, criminal threats and harassing phone calls against Fleiss earlier this month (AUG03). He remains free on bail.
