A troubled Hollywood legend, Tom Sizemore, is in critical condition following a brain aneurysm. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor was found collapsed in his L.A. home at 2 am following a medical emergency. He’s now under observation at an L.A. hospital, with his spokesperson Charles Lago telling THR, “he is currently in critical condition, and it’s a wait-and-see situation,” Lago said, adding, “there are no future updates at this time.”

A veteran character actor, Sizemore’s credits include his prominent roles in Steven Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan, Oliver Stone’s Natural Born Killers, Ridley Scott’s Black Hawk Down and many others. More recently, Sizemore had a role in David Lynch’s Twin Peaks: The Return. He’s also appeared in movies like Passenger 57, Strange Days, The Relic, Heat and many more. While enjoying a long career on both the big screen and small screen, the actor had a troubled history, with numerous legal issues mostly stemming from his problems with substance abuse. He hasn’t had a prominent role since a stint on the T.V. series, Shooter and Twin Peaks: The Return, but he’s kept busy with a long list of credits on various DTV movies. According to the IMDB, he has no less than thirty-three movies or tv shows in various stages of development, and he even has a role listed in Cobra Kai’s upcoming sixth season as a character named J.T. Taggart, which would be quite a coup for the actor, given how popular the show is.

While many will point at the various headlines and accusations lobbed at the actor, Sizemore himself has always been open about his struggles, and years ago gave a terrific interview to Bret Easton Ellis about his various addictions, which is well worth a listen. Hopefully, he’ll recover quickly.
