It's not good news for Tom Sizemore. The 61-year-old actor, who collapsed in his Los Angeles home earlier this month after suffering a brain aneurysm from a stroke, remains in a coma in critical condition, and his manager says it's not going to get better from here. "Doctors informed his family that there is no further hope," Charles Lago says in a statement, per Variety. "The family is now deciding end-of-life matters." Lago adds that a further statement will come out on Wednesday. Sizemore has seen his acting career muddled by troubles with the law, including a conviction for assault and battery against ex Heidi Fleiss, and addiction, per USA Today. He wrote a memoir in 2013 entitled By Some Miracle I Made It Out of There.

Tom Sizemore, an actor whose film roles include Sgt. Mike Horvath in Saving Private Ryan, is hospitalized in critical condition after suffering a brain aneurysm. "His family is aware and waiting for updates," said Charles Lago, a spokesman for the actor, CNN reports. Sizemore was found at his home in Los Angeles, collapsed, about 2am Sunday, per The Hollywood Reporter. "It's a wait-and-see situation," Lago said.

The actor, 61, has a history of criminal drug abuse and domestic violence convictions and allegations, per Yahoo Entertainment, that have at times overshadowed his acting career. In 2017, Sizemore recounted living in his car and squatting for a two-year period during the worst of his drug addiction. He said he asked actor Jack Nicholson for financial help—in the amount of a $10 million loan. Nicholson declined, he said. (Read more Tom Sizemore stories.)
