April 18, 2008 — Sweet romantic action comedy takes a one-two punch in the right direction, adding the typically tough Sizemore as a clean-cut softie in “Magificent Mimi’s” Double Duty’s action ring.

The well-known Tom Sizemore of Saving Private Ryan and Black Hawk Down plays a departure role as Mimi’s metrosexual love interest. Lesseos states, “(Sizemore’s) agent approached us saying that if he played another bad-ass character, audiences wouldn’t give him another chance … People will love him as this lovely, good-looking, clean smelling guy with clean fingernails.”

Known worldwide by her fighting name, “Magnificent Mimi,” Lesseos was Hilary Swank’s stuntwoman in Million Dollar Baby, and star and fight choreographer in Streets of Rage. This “female Jackie Chan” contributed her knockout talent as a hilarious actress, champion martial artist, producer and screenwriter of the film.

Fellow striking talent include the always beautiful Connie Stevens; 1970’s sexpot Karen Black (Five Easy Pieces); Morgan Freeman’s talented son, Alphonso Freeman (The Bucket List, The Shawshank Redmption); and Wayne Bauer (Streets of Rage) on stunts. Directed by Stephen Eckelberry, Karen Black’s talented husband.

In this funny, action-packed film Lesseos stars as the object of Sizemore’s affection: a hardcore ex-marine trying to adjust to civilian life and discover her feminine side, with the help of best friend Sophia (Duerden). Many obstacles are thrown in her path, resulting in edge of your seat action every 7 pages of the script. Lesseos and Sizemore make a dynamic duo, touching our hearts while keeping us laughing from start to finish, and making Double Duty double the fun.

Double Duty is currently in post-production and will release in summer 2008.
