Manager Says No Further Hope For Actor Tom Sizemore After Brain Aneurysm
The family of US actor Tom Sizemore are in the process of making end of life decisions following Sizemore's brain aneurysm earlier this month, his manager has said.
The 61-year-old has starred in numerous films, such as Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down and Natural Born Killers.
Sizemore has experienced difficulties with drug abuse and has served prison time for domestic violence.
Charles Lago informed US media that doctors had advised his family that sadly there was no further hope and had recommended end of life decisions. He expressed that the family is now determining end of life matters and plans to issue a statement on Wednesday. He continued that the family would appreciate privacy during this trying period and thanked everyone for the generous support and messages of prayer they had received.
Sizemore rose to stardom in the 1990s and was seen alongside Tom Hanks as Sergeant Horvath in the Oscar-winning movie Saving Private Ryan in 1998. His other films included Pearl Harbor, Heat, and True Romance. He also earned a Golden Globe nomination for playing a mobster in the 1999 TV movie Witness Protection.
Unfortunately, with fame and money came a heavy drug habit. In his autobiography, he wrote about his struggles with heroin and crystal meth addiction. In 1997, he was arrested on suspicion of assaulting his wife, actress and tennis player Maeve Quinlan. They eventually divorced in 1999.
In 2003, he was handed a six-month prison sentence for assaulting his then-girlfriend, "Hollywood madam" Heidi Fleiss. He was also made to undertake rehabilitation and anger management classes.
More recently, Jason made a guest appearance in the immensely popular Netflix series Cobra Kai and had a recurring part in the 2017 revival of David Lynch's cult classic Twin Peaks.
Sadly, he was afflicted by a brain aneurysm on the 18th of February.
