Tom Sizemore has had a bit of a rough life, but he's certainly left his mark in film. I've been following his current ordeal, so I was looking at his filmography from the past few years on Wikipedia yesterday, and man has he ever been busy.

It's obviously a very tragic situation, and we can only hope and pray for the best possible outcome for everyone involved.

Sad news.

Random awesome Sizemore performance: his one scene in “Point Break”.

“You think I like this hair? You think I like these clothes? My wife wants me to stay at Ramada!”

I haven't seen Point Break in a very long time. This is a pretty amazing all-star lineup in this scene.

RIP.

Was so awesome in Natural Born Killers, and a ton of other roles. One of the great “character actors” of our times.

The arc of Anthony Sinclair’s character was a great subversion of Sizemore’s usual tough-guy typecasting. He did a great job becoming increasingly frazzled and ramping up to his eventual breakdown.

A complicated legacy due to his various legal issues over the years, but always a performer who delivered.

The passing of people involved in Twin Peaks has been tragically frequent in recent years, but it's unheard of that such an event is the top headline of one of the biggest online news outlets, but there it is, and it's been so for over 12 hours. (I haven't checked other outlets.) Of course, Sizemore isn't famous because of Twin Peaks, but it's still remarkable. The article pictured below does mention Peaks:

On TV, he played a recurring role on the third season of China Beach that aired in 1989 and 1990; co-starred in the 2017 Twin Peaks revival; and headlined the 1999 TV movie Witness Protection, for which he earned a Golden Globe nomination.

Shame that he let his Demons overrule his talent. Peace out, dude.
