Thesp pair may join Scorsese’s ‘Dead’

Sizemore, Goodman in talks to join Cage, Rhames

Tom Sizemore and John Goodman are in advanced talks to join Nicolas Cage and Ving Rhames in the Martin Scorsese-helmed drama “Bringing Out the Dead.”

The film, a co-production between Paramount and Touchstone, is being produced by Scott Rudin and Barbara DeFina. Paul Schrader penned the script from Joseph Connelly’s novel.

Pic focuses on a burned-out Hell’s Kitchen paramedic (Cage) who has visions of the people who have died in his care.

Sizemore will play Walls, Cage’s old partner, while Rhames plays Marcus, Cage’s new partner. Goodman plays another paramedic, working the graveyard shift.

Sizemore, who currently is onscreen in Steven Spielberg’s “Saving Private Ryan,” also recently joined the cast of Oliver Stone’s football pic “On Any Given Sunday.” He is repped by UTA.

His other credits include the upcoming indie drama “The Florentine,” with Chris Penn and Michael Madsen, as well as “The Relic,” “Heat” and “Devil in a Blue Dress.”

Goodman just finished a starring turn in this summer’s Public Theater revival of Thorton Wilder’s “The Skin of Our Teeth” in New York.

He was featured in four movies released this year: “Blues Brothers 2000,” “The Big Lebowski,” “Fallen” and “The Borrowers.” He will also co-star in the indie pic “Runner, ” in which he plays a bookie opposite Ron Eldard, Courtney Cox and Joe Mantegna.

Goodman was repped in the deal by CAA.
