So I guess ESPN is looking to give Pete Rose a sympathetic spin. In the "best" casting news in a long time, Tom Sizemore is going to play Pete Rose in ESPN's movie Hustle. I actually mentioned Hustle a few weeks ago because it was announced that Peter Bogdanovich will be directing. ESPN seems to like the grittiness Sizemore brings to his characters. They also must not be afraid of his insurance fees. He's still waiting to serve jail time and probation for his conviction of beating ex-girlfriend Heidi Fleiss. Hey, that's sure less troubling than betting ona couple baseball games, right?
