Sizemore, best known for his roles in military action dramas Saving Private Ryan and Black Hawk Down, died following his hospitalization due to a brain aneurysm. He was 61.
His manager, Charles Lago, confirmed his death to PEOPLE. It occurred two weeks after the actor collapsed after having a stroke that lead to the aneurysm. Since Feb. 18, he remained in critical condition in a coma and did not regain consciousness.
“It is with great sadness and sorrow I have to announce that actor Thomas Edward Sizemore (‘Tom Sizemore’) aged 61 passed away peacefully in his sleep today at St Joseph’s Hospital Burbank,” his rep said in a statement.
Lago added that Sizemore’s brother, Paul Sizemore, and his twin boys, Jayden and Jagger, 17, were at his side.
Alongside Travolta, various other stars also paid tribute to Sizemore after his death this week.
“Beautiful guy, god called another hero back. RIP @tom.sizemore,” Danny Trejo captioned a group throwback photograph that featured the two actors.
“In 2015 Sizemore read [actor Eric Bogosian’s] part at a table reading for Gems,” filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie recalled in their own tribute, referring to their film Uncut Gems.
They added: “He improvised with the actor next to him (despite them not being in the scene), sometimes making up new plot details… it made an entirely predictable experience unpredictable. RIP.”
