Actor Tom Sizemore is in critical condition in an intensive care unit after suffering from a brain aneurysm, according to reports.

Sizemore's Hollywood representative Charles Lago told Fox News, "He is in the hospital. His family is aware of the situation and are hoping for the best. It is too early to know about [a] recovery situation as he is in critical condition and under observation."

Lago told TMZ that the "Saving Private Ryan" star was at his Los Angeles home where he suffered a brain aneurysm and collapsed into unconsciousness around 2 a.m. on Saturday. Someone reportedly found Sizemore unconscious, called 911, and the 61-year-old actor was rushed to a local hospital.

Sizemore started his acting career in 1989 and has 263 acting credits to his name. Sizemore has starred in Hollywood blockbusters such as "Saving Private Ryan," "Black Hawk Down," "Natural Born Killers," "Heat," "True Romance," "Wyatt Earp," "Born on the Fourth of July," and "Point Break." Sizemore had been acting up until recently, and has numerous projects due to be released this year.

Sizemore has battled drug addiction since he was 15 years old, and has been in and out of rehab. Sizemore appeared on the reality television series "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew." The Detroit native has been arrested for possession of meth and "various illegal narcotics." The actor has repeatedly failed drug tests while on probation. He also had several run-ins with the law, including domestic violence.

This is a developing story and will be updated if there are new details.
