Tom Sizemore dead at 61: Saving Private Ryan star dies after suffering brain aneurysm | The Sun

SAVING Private Ryan star Tom Sizemore has died at the age of 61, his representative confirmed today.

The actor is said to have passed away at a hospital in Los Angeles on Friday after his family made the difficult decision to remove his life support. 

Sizemore's rep, Charles Lago, confirmed the tragic news today, adding he was surrounded by family when he died.

Lago told TMZ: "It is with great sadness and sorrow I have to announce that actor Thomas Edward Sizemore (“Tom Sizemore”) aged 61 passed away peacefully in his sleep today at St Joseph’s Hospital Burbank.

"His Brother Paul and twin boys Jayden and Jagger, 17, were at his side."

It comes after Sizemore was rushed to hospital after suffering a brain aneurysm at home on Saturday February 18.

The 61-year-old had fallen unconscious at around 2am, Sizemore's manager Charles Lago told Fox News.

A yet-to-be-identified person found the actor lying in his house and called 911.

EMT crews then quickly transported Sizemore to a local hospital, where the Intensive Care Unit deemed his condition as critical.

Sizemore played the notable role of Sergeant Horvath in the 1998 classic movie inspired by the events of World War II.

Saving Private Ryan won five Academy Awards.

After starring alongside Tom Hanks and Matt Damon, Sizemore became known for another iconic war movie — 2001's Black Hawk Down.

The actor also appeared in notable films like Born on the Fourth of July, Natural Born Killers, and Heat.

Most recently, Sizemore is set to appear during the first episode of Cobra Kai's sixth season as the character J.T. Taggart, per IMDb.

Over the years, the 61-year-old's career in Hollywood has had some ups and downs.

Along with being arrested for driving under the influence, Sizemore has been taken in on domestic violence and possession of controlled substance charges in the past, per Daily Mail.

In 2013, the actor also released his tell-all book titled By Some Miracle I Made It Out of There.

The pages detailed an affair with actress and model Elizabeth Hurley — who he claimed seduced him during their time together on the 1992 film, Passenger 57.

However, Sizemore ended up marrying Maeve Quinian from 1996 to 1999.

Aside from the upcoming appearance on Cobra Kai, Sizemore is starring in an upcoming independent science-fiction film called Impuratus as Detective Clayton Douglas.

"It was a period piece, which was interesting, and I really like the people that were involved," the actor told Age of the Nerd during a recent interview.

He also said he was shown an early cut of Impuratus and was allegedly "blown away" by it.

Sizemore has had a 34-year career thus far, earning his first credit in the television series Gideon Oliver.
