Sizemore will play Jack Kopus, a terrifying and unpredictable drug dealer and father of Native American ex-con Phillip Kopus, played by Jason Momoa.
Drama, from Aaron Guzikowski, centers on a local cop struggling to keep his family together while simultaneously policing two clashing communities: the small town where he grew up, and the neighboring mountains where a Native American tribe resides.
Sundance Channel ordered “The Red Road” straight to series with a six-episode pickup. Series will be exec produced with Guzikowski along with Sarah Condon and Bridget Carpenter.
In the TV space, Sizemore recently held an arc on “Hawaii Five-0,” and a guest spot on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.” He is repped by APA and Charles Lago of Polimedia.
