We pray for his full and speedy recovery and send our support to him and his family during this difficult time.

Emergency services were quickly called, and the EMS unit transported him to the hospital, where he was admitted to the intensive care unit.
At present, there is no additional information available on his condition, and his family is awaiting updates. We hope for positive news and wish Tom and his loved ones all the strength and support they need during this challenging time.
The 61-year-old actor has had a history of health issues, which many attribute to his history of drug abuse.
According to a 2001 interview in The Calgary Sun, Sizemore entered a drug rehabilitation program in 1998 after his mother and friend Robert De Niro appeared on his doorstep during the filming of Witness to the Mob. Telling him they were there to drive him to jail or to rehabilitation, Sizemore chose the latter. After completing a stint in rehab, he counseled adolescents involved in substance abuse.
In an interview with Larry King in 2010, the actor revealed that he had previously been addicted to cocaine, heroin and meth. He even appeared on MTV’s reality show Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew where it showed the ups and downs of the actor’s recovery from his addictions.
The actor was most recently arrested in 2020 for a DUI and the possession of narcotics.
Sizemore is famous for starring in several crime and war films in the late ’90s and early 2000s such as Black Hawk Down, Natural Born Killers and most famously, Steven Spielberg’s World War II classic Saving Private Ryan.
The actor has over 230 credits to his name, most recently appearing on Netflix’s revival of the Karate Kid franchise Cobra Kai. He currently has 30 upcoming films and TV show appearances in various stages of production.
