US actor Tom Sizemore, who is best known for his roles in Saving Private Ryan and Black Hawk Down, has sadly died at the age of 61. The Hollywood star had been in a coma since suffering a ruptured brain aneurysm on February 18.

Tom is said to have died yesterday in a hospital in Burbank, California, with brother Paul and twin boys Jayden and Jagger, 17, at his bedside.

His manager, Charles Lago, confirmed the sad news, explaining that the actor’s sons were devastated and that they asked for their privacy to be respected at this time.

“The Sizemore family has been comforted by the hundreds of messages of support,” he said.

The late star’s brother, Paul Sizemore, added: “I am deeply saddened by the loss of my big brother Tom.


“He was larger than life. He has influenced my life more than anyone I know.

“He was talented, loving, giving and could keep you entertained endlessly with his wit and storytelling ability.”

In his full statement, manager Charles said: “I am very saddened by the loss of not only a client but a great friend and mentor of almost 15 years.

“Tom was one of the most sincere, kind and generous human beings I have had the pleasure of knowing.

“His courage and determination through adversity was always an inspiration to me.

“The past couple of years were great for him and he was getting his life back to a great place.

“He loved his sons and his family.

“I will miss my friend Tom Sizemore greatly.”


Tom suffered a brain aneurysm as a result of a stroke in the early hours of February 18.

He collapsed and was found lying in his home in Los Angeles before being taken to hospital by ambulance.

He had since been in critical condition and in intensive care, with his family preparing to make a heartwrenching decision for him as he remained in a coma.

The family will hold a private cremation service, while a larger “celebration of life event” will take place in a few weeks.
