Exclusive: Check out a clip from Saint John Of Las Vegas, starring Steve Buscemi and Sarah Silverman

We haven't seen Saint John Of Las Vegas yet, but the cast is awful promising, so when we were offered an exclusive clip from the flick, we figured: Why not? First, a studio-approved synopsis. Oh, and it opens Jan. 29 in New York and L.A., then goes wider Feb. 12.

Synopsis: After a run of bad luck, John (Steve Buscemi), a compulsive gambler, runs away from Las Vegas and toward a normal job and life.  Taking a nondescript position in an auto insurance company in Albuquerque, he tries to get ahead in the straight world, amid the ever-present temptations of scratch-off lotto tickets. When his boss, Mr. Townsend (Peter Dinklage), asks John to accompany his top fraud debunker, Virgil (Romany Malco) on an investigation of a dubious car “accident” near Vegas, John sees an opportunity to get a promotion , though he’s concerned about  returning to the gambling game. Before  leaving he becomes involved with his eccentric co-worker Jill (Sarah Silverman), a dalliance that has the potential to become a real relationship.
