Tom Sizemore Dies at 61 Following Brain Aneurysm

Tom Sizemore, who mastered the art of playing the tough guy in films starting in the 1980s, is dead. He died Friday, two weeks after suffering a brain aneurysm resulting from a stroke.

Charles Lago, his manager, confirmed his client’s death, saying Sizemore “passed away peacefully in his sleep at St Joseph’s Hospital Burbank. His brother Paul and twin boys Jayden and Jagger were at his side.”

“I am deeply saddened by the loss of my big brother Tom,” Paul Sizemore said in a statement. “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. I am devastated he is gone and will miss him always.”
