Tom Sizemore, who played Private Ryan, is in intensive care in the hospital after having a brain aneurysm, a representative of him told CNN on Sunday morning.
A spokesperson, Charles Lago, said that Sizemore’s condition is “wait and see” and that he is in critical condition. Lago said –
“His family is aware and waiting for updates.”
“There is no further update at this time.”
Sizemore, a 61-year-old from Detroit, was in a number of hit crime and war movies in the 1990s and 2000s, including “Heat,” “Natural Born Killers,” “Pearl Harbor,” and “Black Hawk Down.”

He often plays tough guys, but he may be best known for his role as Sgt. Mike Horvath in “Saving Private Ryan,” a movie about World War II.
As the loyal sergeant alongside star Tom Hanks, Sizemore delivers the titular line towards the end of the movie –
“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***ty mess.”
He was also nominated for a Golden Globe Award in 2000 for his role in “Witness Protection” as Best Performance by an Actor in a Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television.
He has been in episodes of the TV shows “Twin Peaks” and “Cobra Kai” in recent years. Sizemore has been addicted to drugs for a long time and has been in a lot of trouble with the law during his career.
In 2003, he was found guilty of domestic violence because of his relationship with his ex-fiancee Heidi Fleiss. In a 2010 interview with CNN’s Larry King, he said he was addicted to cocaine, heroin, and meth. He also took part in the 2010 season of “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.”
