Tom Sizemore has been hospitalized following a brain aneurysm, his spokesperson, Charles Lago, has confirmed to Fox News. Sizemore is best known for playing Sgt. Mike Horvath in the Oscar-winning World War II film, Saving Private Ryan. He’s also starred in Heat, True Romance, Born on the Fourth of July, Black Hawk Down, and more. Outside of the big screen, he voiced Sonny Forelli in the video game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and played Anthony Sinclair in Twin Peaks: The Return.
“He is in the hospital,” Lago told the outlet. “His family is aware of the situation and are hoping for the best. It is too early to know about [a] recovery situation as he is in critical condition and under observation.”

Sizemore has struggled with substance abuse throughout his life. During a 2013 interview, Sizemore claimed that he was working toward sobriety after a stern talk with Robert De Niro. In 2021, he spoke with Fox News about his journey, admitting that he eventually reached a point where he knew he had to stop. “I’ve been trying to get sober since 1991,” he said. “It became really big news much later than that, but I was trying to stop. I’ve had a problem for a long time. I had periods, long periods, of sobriety and I would end up relapsing.”
He continued: “I still go to meetings and work my steps, but I had reached a place in my life where I knew I had to stop. I couldn’t be arrogant anymore. If I wanted to reach a nice and pleasant old age, I had to stop. And if I wanted to watch my kids grow up, I needed to reach a place where I knew it was over.”
There have yet to be any further updates regarding the actor’s condition. Sizemore is the father of two children, Jagger and Jayden, whom he shares with Janelle McIntire. The two twins were born in 2005.
