Film industry reacts to death of ‘Saving Private Ryan’ star Tom Sizemore: ‘You are a legend’

The film industry pays tribute to Tom Sizemore after learning that the actor died of a brain aneurysm at the age of 61.

Sizemore, best known for his role as Mike Horvath in “Saving Private Ryan“, passed away peacefully in his sleep Friday at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Burbank surrounded by his brother Paul and 17-year-old twins Jayden and Jagger, Sizemore Rep. Charles Lago said in a statement to Fox News Digital. .

The actor collapsed in his Los Angeles home on February 18 and was rushed to hospital. It was determined that he suffered from a cerebral aneurysm resulting from a stroke. He has since remained in critical condition and received intensive care and had not regained his conciseness.

On Monday, Lago said, “Doctors informed his family that there was no more hope and recommended an end-of-life decision,” adding that the family “is now deciding on end-of-life matters.”

Following news of Sizemore’s death, people in the film industry who knew the actor reacted to his passing on Twitter.

Sizemore’s ex-wife, actress Maeve Quinlan, to whom he was married from 1996 to 1999, said in a statement: “My heartfelt condolences to the entire Sizemore family and Tom’s longtime manager, Charles Lago. Especially my thoughts and prayers go to Tom’s two sons, Jayden and Jagger. May God hold you both in the palm of his hand, give you strength and bless you all the days of your life.

Sizemore shares his sons with Janelle McIntire.

“One of my first movies was with Tom Sizemore,” actor Wendell Pierce wrote. “A bon vivant and a great actor. God bless him.”

Director Michael Matteo Rossi wrote: “You were an amazing actor RIP Tom Sizemore.”

Sonny Mahal, a film producer, described Sizemore as a great actor and friend who will always be remembered through his film roles.

“I love you brother! RIP Tom Sizemore! Thank you for being a good friend, thank you for all the good times we had together and thank you for being in our movies! We will miss you forever!” Mahal wrote. “You are a legend and you will always live on through the amazing movies you made!”

Film producer and lawyer Mark Vadik said it was an “honor” to work alongside the 61-year-old actor.

“It was an honor to work with you and get to know you,” Vadik wrote. “May you find peace. Sleep well my friend.”

The Asylum’s official Twitter account added: “We are so saddened to learn of the loss of our dear friend and longtime collaborator, Tom Sizemore.”



In addition to his role in “Saving Private Ryan,” Sizemore starred in several other hit films in the late 1990s and early 2000s, including “Black Hawk Down” and “Heat.” But his career was then impacted by problems with drug addiction and arrests for impaired driving, abuse and possession of a controlled substance.
