Actor Tom Sizemore’s manager revealed that the actor’s family is considering end-of-life matters following a brain aneurysm he suffered earlier this month. The 61-year-old actor, known for his roles in films such as Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down, and Natural Born Killers, has had a tumultuous past involving drug addiction and domestic violence, which led to jail time.
The family is asking for privacy during this difficult time and will issue a further statement soon. Sizemore found fame in the 1990s but struggled with drug addiction, as he wrote in his autobiography, and faced legal trouble due to domestic violence.
Despite a recent guest appearance on the Netflix shows Cobra Kai and a recurring role in Twin Peaks, his health has taken a turn for the worse, leaving his family to make difficult decisions.
