According to his management, Tom Sizemore, 61, who acted in films such as “Saving Private Ryan” and “Black Hawk Down,” has passed away.

He also played supporting roles in movies like Natural Born Killers, Pearl Harbor and Heat. He played a variety of roles as police enforcement personnel, soldiers and criminals.

Nevertheless, he suffered with drug addiction and was incarcerated for beating his wife.

Since the 18th of February, Sizemore has been in a coma since he had a ruptured brain aneurysm.

According to his manager Charles Lago, he died with his brother Paul and twin boys Jayden and Jagger by his side at a hospital in Burbank, California, on Friday.

Lago claims that the Sizemore family has received hundreds of letters of support. He said that Sizemore’s sons are distraught and have demanded solitude.

His brother, Paul Sizemore, expressed his sorrow at the loss of their sibling in the following manner. “I am devastated by the loss of my older brother, Tom. He appeared larger than life. He is the one who has had the most influence on my life.

His storytelling abilities, kindness, and wit had you laughing for hours.

Sizemore played the voice of mob boss Sonny Forelli in the 2002 video game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and was nominated for a Golden Globe for his performance in the 1999 television drama Witness Protection.

Problems with drugs

In his memoirs, he discussed his difficulties with heroin and crystal meth addiction, which came with his money and fame.

In 1995, according to Sizemore, De Niro threatened to have him arrested for heroin possession. He had to join a treatment facility after that which prompted one of his spells in recovery. Sizemore was the one who decided to get therapy.

Steven Spielberg allegedly threatened to fire the actor and reshoot the whole film if he displayed any evidence of drug use during shooting Saving Private Ryan.
