T OM SIZEMORE once was a fixture in Tattle. It seemed like the burly actor ( Black Hawk Down , Saving Private Ryan , Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew , Sober House ) and Temple alum was always getting arrested for something - fights, drugs, violating probation, faking a urine test, etc. With his ties to Hollywood Madam Heidi Fleiss (whom he was jailed for beating) and a brief foray into porn ( The Tom Sizemore Sex Scandal ), Sizemore was one of Tattle's MVPs of the millennium's first decade.

It's another road trip movie, another boxing movie, another Lolita Davidovich-in-flimsy-dresses movie, another Ron Shelton sports movie. It's Play It to the Bone, in which Woody Harrelson and Antonio Banderas are coulda-been prizefighters, best buddies who hang around a gym in an L.A. barrio, schmoozing and bruising and trying to figure out where they went wrong. Then one day the phone rings: It's a hot-shot fight promoter from Vegas (squawky tough guy Tom Sizemore); the undercard bout of a big match has fallen apart at the last minute.

For 58 years, the 12-story art deco building was a landmark at Broad Street and Pattison Avenue in South Philadelphia. More than that, it was the place where thousands and thousands of Americans wounded and maimed defending their country during three major wars came to be healed or to die.

Trying to steal a few ratings points, CBS yesterday announced four new cop shows, all dramas, to go along with a medical drama and a couple of sitcoms. That's Life, the spunky family drama that featured Ellen Burstyn and Paul Sorvino, got killed, breaking the hearts of its fervent (though small) audience. So did The Education of Max Bickford, a one-year wonder that starred Richard Dreyfuss. Also gone, and less likely to be missed: Family Law and First Monday. The network hung onto two other relative ratings lightweights, The Agency and - fans will sing hallelujah - Touched by an Angel.

WHO CAN RESIST a woman in uniform? Probably a lot of people when that woman is Madonna and the uniform she's wearing belongs to the Boy Scouts, for whom there is no "Express Yourself" merit badge. Madonna, of course, is trying to change that, so she dressed in a uni and called on the Boy Scouts to lift its ban on gays, while also calling for a "revolution" to prevent discrimination and abuse of the gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual community. Speaking Saturday night at the GLAAD Media Awards, Madonna joked that she wanted to become a part of the Boy Scouts herself, but was turned down, even though she had the qualifications.

Saving Private Ryan star Tom Sizemore lashed out on TV yesterday about the latest developments in the ongoing legal mess that's taken over his life. On Thursday, he was sentenced to 17 months in jail and four months in a residential drug rehab facility for failing seven drug tests while on probation for an '03 conviction for beating ex-girlfriend Heidi Fleiss. But Sizemore, 43, won't be going to jail anytime soon: He is free pending his appeal in the Fleiss case. The actor, who also was sentenced to further inpatient drug treatment in a separate felony methamphetamine-possession case, said that since he was free, he'd won a clear victory.
