Tom Sizemore’s family will make an end-of-life decision for the actor who suffered a brain aneurysm from a stroke on Feb. 19, his rep says.
The Saving Private Ryan actor has been in critical condition and in a coma at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center in Burbank since he was found at home unconscious. In a statement Monday, Sizemore’s rep, Charles Lago, said that there was no longer a chance for his recovery.
“Today, doctors informed his family that there is no further hope and have recommended end-of-life decision,” Lago said in the statement to The Hollywood Reporter, adding that the “family is now deciding end-of-life matters.”
“We are asking for privacy for his family during this difficult time, and they wish to thank everyone for the hundreds of messages of support and prayers that have been received,” Lago added. “This has been a difficult time for them.”
Sizemore was found at his Los Angeles home in the early morning unconscious after he had collapsed following the medical emergency. Paramedics transported the actor to the L.A.-area hospital, where he had been under observation in the intensive care unit.
Sizemore is best known for his portrayal of Sgt. Mike Horvath in the Oscar-winning World War II film directed by Steven Spielberg. The film, which starred Tom Hanks, garnered five Academy Awards, including best director, with an additional six nominations, including best picture, during the 1999 ceremony.
The 61-year-old performer, who became notable for his roles in ’90s actioners, has also appeared in the Oliver Stone-directed, Quentin Tarantino-written Natural Born Killers, which also starred Woody Harrelson, Juliette Lewis, Robert Downey Jr. and Tommy Lee Jones; a year later in Michael Mann’s heist film Heat; the Ben Affleck-led war drama Pearl Harbor and Ridley Scott’s Black Hawk Down, which were both released in 2001.
