Actor Tom Sizemore is likely in the final days of his life, as doctors have told his family that there is “no further hope” in his recovery.

Tom Sizemore’s manager made the following statement on Monday: “Today, doctors informed his family that there is no further hope and have recommended end of life decision…The family is now deciding end of life matters and a further statement will be issued on Wednesday.”

Tom Sizemore was listed in critical condition after collapsing following a medical emergency. According to his manager, over the past weekend, “Sizemore collapsed at his Los Angeles home and was transported to a hospital by Paramedics. He was found to be suffering from a brain aneurism that occurred as a result of a stroke. Since that day, Tom has remained in critical condition, in a coma and in intensive care.”

Tom Sizemore emerged on the scene in the late 1980s, marking himself as a stand-out supporting actor towards the end of that decade and into the 1990s in movies like Born on the Fourth of July, Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man and Passenger 57. He is probably most recognizable to movie fans for his turns in True Romance, Saving Private Ryan and Black Hawk Down, while gamers will know him as the voice of mob boss Sonny Forelli in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Sizemore’s most notable roles of the later part of his career was appearing in the Twin Peaks revival for David Lynch and a black ops member on Shooter. Just last month came Bermuda Island, which could be his last movie released during his lifetime.

Tom Sizemore has of course had personal troubles and scandals as well, with the release of a sex tape, sexual abuse allegations and substance abuse problems. He went on to appear on the reality series Celebrity Rehab, proving to be one of the more interesting participants that viewers could root for.
