Giovanni Ribisi Pulls Classic Grandson Con in Amazon's 'Sneaky Pete' Trailer

August 4, 2015


With Breaking Bad, Bryan Cranston tackled such serious crimes as drug manufacturing, conspiracy, and homicide. Now, as executive produce and guest star of a new Amazon pilot, he's ready to take on the most heinous crime of all: grandson impersonation.

Sneaky Pete stars Giovanni Ribisi as a con man who pulls something of a Don Draper, assuming the identity of his still-incarcerated cell mate when he's let out of prison. His first move with his new identity? Visiting the actual Pete's grandparents and gaining their trust. Now he'll get their strange, seemingly-arbitrary Christmas gifts. He'll have to take them to dinner at the Sizzler once a year or so. He'll be rationalizing their offhand, bigoted comments by reminding himself that they're from a different generation. But mostly, it looks like he'll play skiptracer to the family's bail bond business while dodging a past he can never escape. Here's the trailer:
