Tom Sizemore in Critical Condition Following Brain Aneurysm
The 'Saving Private Ryan' actor is currently hospitalized in intensive care.
Tom Sizemore, an actor whose most prominent role is arguably Sergeant Mike Horvath in 1998's war drama Saving Private Ryan, is currently in critical condition after suffering a brain aneurysm.
Charles Lago, a spokesperson for the actor, told CNN that Sizemore's current condition is a "wait-and-see situation."
Lago further stated, “His family is aware and waiting for updates. There is no further update at this time."
The 61-year-old actor really hit his stride in the late 1990s and early 2000s, with roles in movies like Black Hawk Down, The Relic, Heat, Pearl Harbor, and more.
His character in Saving Private Ryan, Sergeant Horvath, is a close friend to Tom Hank's character, Captain John H. Miller.

Horvath also says the memorable line at the end of the movie that references the title, saying, "Some day we might look back on this and decide that saving Private Ryan was the one decent thing we were able to pull out of this godawful s----y mess."
Speaking to Decider in 2022 about his most recent project, Barbee Rehab, Sizemore said of working on Saving Private Ryan, "As good as the movie was, the experience was just as good. It was just a great experience...It’s Steven Spielberg and Tom [Hanks], who I thought was in his prime peak as an actor and physically as well. It was a terrific experience."
Aside from his most recent and most notable projects, the actor appeared in an episode of Cobra Kai and the films Impuratus, Megalodon Rising, and Hustle Down, among others.
Along with his prominent acting career, Sizemore was also cast in Season 3 of the reality TV show Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew after facing multiple criminal charges related to domestic violence and substance use issues throughout the early and mid-2000s.
In 2018, Sizemore made headlines again after he was sued by a former child star that alleged the actor groped her while working on the Born Killers movie back in 2003, the set of which the actor was kicked off following the incident. Sizemore later denied the claims and the suit was eventually dismissed, per NBC.
