Tom Sizemore (Saving Private Ryan) has signed on for a recurring role in Shooter, USA Network’s upcoming drama series from Paramount TV and Universal Cable Prods.

The thriller, based on Stephen Hunter’s novel Point Of Impact and the 2007 Paramount film starring Mark Wahlberg, is written by John Hlavin and executive produced by Wahlberg. It stars Ryan Phillippe as Bob Lee Swagger — the role played by Wahlberg in the movie — an expert marksman living in exile who is coaxed back into action after learning of a plot to kill the president. Omar Epps, Shantel VanSanten and Cynthia Addai-Robinson also star.

Sizemore will play Senior CIA agent Hugh Meachum, who’s willing to do whatever necessary to advance his country’s standing in an increasingly competitive global economy.

Sizemore’s recent TV credits include Lucifer and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. He’s also set to appear in David Lynch’s upcoming new installment of Twin Peaks on Showtime. He’s repped by Luber Roklin and DTLA Entertainment Group

Wahlberg and Hlavin executive produce Shooter with Stephen Levinson and Lorenzo di Bonaventura. Phillippe serves as producer.  Simon Cellan Jones directed the pilot.
