In the late '90s, there was a lot of Oscar buzz about Sizemore getting a best supporting actor nomination for playing a tough sarge. In Saving Private Ryan! Alas, Sizemore was not nominated after all.
Some years later, a friend of mine told me about Sizemore's problems with drugs and prostitutes. As his career started to go back on the rise (supposedly), he has suffered great health problems. So bad, in fact, that his family is going to have to "pull the plug" on him. And I didn't realize he was only 61. Very Sad.
