Likely he'll be released on bail
on the 19th and then go through the long
process of awaiting trial. If it
turns out Tom is unable to leave the state,
we'll shoot his scenes in LA. If
he's imprisoned before his scheduled
scenes in Townies, I'll proceed negotiations
with Sean Bean's agent.
As of June 12, O'Dea has not been in
touch with Sean's agent in the UK, and
there have been no negotiations, offers
Update June 26, 2007:
On Monday, June 25, Tom Sizemore was
sentenced to 16 months in prison for
violating probation. On Tuesday, June
26, Superior Court Judge Cynthia Rayvis
gave the actor 213 days of credit for
time he has already spent in jail and
two live-in drug programs, leaving him
with about nine months in state prison.

Sean Bean "Passes" on Townies
I've had to accept the reality that Tom will not be around in
the next few
months to shoot Townies.
Sean Bean is one of the biggest celebrities next on my list to
the Irish mob boss after Tom. His agent Jane Brand got back to
this morning. "Thanks, but Sean will pass. Best of Luck
with the Movie."
