Sizemore's reality show

Tom Sizemore will star in his own reality show on VH1. in an attempt to repair his damaged reputation after several years of bad publicity that has been well documented in the tabloids and here on The Colonel's Eagle.

Sizemore has had a long battle with drug addiction and was convicted in 2003 of assault and battery against his former girlfriend Heidi Fleiss. Sentenced to 17 months in jail and four months in a drug treatment facility after repeatedly failing drug test last year and was caught using The Whizzinator, a prosthetic penis sewn into his boxer shorts and filled with a clean urine sample kept warm by a heating pack to fake the results of his drug tests.

Also last year, approximately eight hours of celebrity sex tapes were released on the internet starring Sizemore. VH1 senior vice president of series production Jeff Olde says, "You literally watch a man come unglued and unravelled from his own point of view. He lays it all out there."

The series will follow the now-sober actor as he embarks on acting jobs, including a movie for the BBC being filmed in Canada. Sizemore will narrate the show, which will also include flashbacks to his battles with drugs and sexual addiction using video footage he shot on his own.

"He’s still one of my favourite actors and I think he’s the only person who could play a ‘real’ Colonel Creedon on screen". Colonel Creedon said last September.

When do you take delivery of your Whizzinator, Colonel?

Just when you thought that notion had left our heads, you went and revived it! Nice timing!

All I can say is Oh dear , oh dear....(walks away shaking his head in bitter but strangely expected disapointment

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

@ Sith: Well a funny thing happened. I logged on to E-bay to get my Whizzinator but instead of ordering it I got a front RIS mounting system and scope for my M4A1 instead.

@ Vaughan: Does that mean you'll be watching the show- you watch everything.

"You literally watch a man come unglued and unravelled from his own point of view" - thats interesting but I'd like to see a reality TV show where a troop of Shrinks try and talk the Colonel down to reality, really deal with the man's inadquacies, there so much material, the entertainment could go on forever!

sith apologist said...

You could get a traumatic episode from the Whizzinator alone.
Not sure the world is ready for an examination of the Colonels psyche? Still, I'm sure theres a segment of the population that could find this morbidly fascinating :)
But only if they're not allowed to do it to me!

Master Guns said...

Shrinks wouldn't work, we were trained to resist that form of torture. There should be another way to 'break' the Colonel. We will find it.

Civilian Overseer said...

Cancel the Osprey Project?, blow up the White Flag factory and cripple his military might?, how do we bring the Colonel to his knees?, your suggestions here!

sith apologist said...

he's been known to quit in the face of superior sabre skills :)

sith apologist said...

He's been known to yield to superior sabre skills?

Civilain Overseer said...

I remember he surrendered his weapon to a young lovely in first year, then she shot him in the pub, happy times! ;)

So we know Hot Chicks work as well.

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

@ Civilian Overseer: White Flag?? How dare you! I ain't no coward. There's no proof of this!

@ Sith Apologist: Your "sabre" was a heavy duty cardboard tube. Mine was a plastic replica worth about £35. Naturally I wasn't going to let you break it (Vaughan did that later off the back of my chair). If I had a 990mm roll of heavy duty cardboard too, I'd have wiped that smug English smile off your face!

@ Civilian Overseer: She had, Erm... Mind powers!! Actually I don't recall that incident...

Master Guns said...

The Colonel lives by the book and so he shall die by it. The sentence for more than half the crimes here is DEATH!!!!

Civilian Overseer said...

I assure you Guns, the Colonel has never gone near a book in his life. Once in was asked to swear on the bible, and it burst into flames when he look at it.

sith apologist said...

I was actually referring to the Theed Palace incident ....

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

@ Civilian Overseer: Actually I'm quite versed in the UCMJ. There's alway a copy in my office. I need to read it regularly to remind myself of all the shit I ain't allowed to do.

@ Sith: Oh that. That was a Video Game, not reality like UT, Quake or Rainbow Six...

sith apologist said...

In that case I remember "Colonel Creedon" saying something like "holy shit, do you live in this map?", and then quitting when "Colon Creedon" killed him!
Also - the Colonel officially fears Shock Rifles :)

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

I don't fear Shock Rifles, I just dislike being shot by them, especially with the "instagib mutator" on.

I didn't quit the game because you adopted a silly handle, I quit because my trigger hand became numb with pain and ceased to function after several hours of incessent battle.

It's okay for you, you have a bionic right hand for "special activities" not discussed in a family blog :D

you love crisps!!! said...

MY GOD MAN,YOU ARE A SICKOFANT!!!I JUST HOPE NO ALIEN BUGS COME AND GET YOU IN YOUR DREAMS!!!THEY MAY CUT YOUR EAR OFF.

Master Guns said...

Sith: Could the Colonel's "fear" of the Shock Rifle be considered cowardice? Would you be willing to testify to that end?

sith apologist said...

Not really I'm afraid. But I think I recall a "running away from the lunatic (me) with the mini-gun" incident. That was cowardice?
