Inside Move: Heidi chronicles film role

Fleiss panders to new clientele: horror fans

You rooted for her in Tom Sizemore‘s abuse trial! You feared her in her pandering trial! Now, prepare to be really scared.

No, it’s not a public Halloween reading of Heidi Fleiss‘ black book — it’s her first film role, toplining homevideo indie York Entertainment’s horror pic “Alien 51,” which just wrapped.

It’s not the only horror story starring Fleiss to wrap last week.

The ex-Hollywood madam (busted a decade ago for money laundering and tax evasion) recently made headlines for her teary-eyed perf in Sizemore’s criminal trial. Sizemore was sentenced to six months after being convicted of abusing and stalking Fleiss, his paramour of two years.

Of course, for one’s first role, it’s wise to pick a part that’s not too much of a stretch, and Fleiss clearly hewed to this advice.

In “Alien 51,” Fleiss, 37, plays a heroin-addicted sidekick to a circus magician — one who feels an on-the-loose government created critter (derived from alien DNA, no less) — will be just what’s needed to rejuvenate their failing carny show.

Fleiss now divides her time between a sex-themed San Diego radio call-in show, a line of gym couture called Heidi Wear and a boutique on Hollywood Blvd. “Alien 51” is scheduled for a June 2004 release; Sizemore is scheduled for an April 2004 release.
