He's an undercover cop in Point Break, a sleazy detective in True Romance, a ruthless bank robber in Heat and countless other roles. His latest film recently had its first public screening, with the folks behind it offering kind words toward the actor.
"The producers, cast, and crew of his latest movie, Impuratus, are devastated by this news and send heartfelt prayers to Tom and his family," producer Guy Quigley said. "All of us are looking forward to celebrating Tom at The County Theater in Doylestown on Sunday, Feb. 26, for the indie film's first public screening."
While Sizemore has had plenty of personal struggles in his life, there is no indication that substance abuse played a direct role in Sizemore's hospitalization.0comments
