The actor first had a small role in the Oliver Stone 1989 film Born on the Fourth of July. His breakthrough in television began when he played Sgt. Vinnie Ventresca around the same time in the show China Beach. He would go on to appear in a number of crime and war movies in the 90s and 2000s, such as Heat, Natural Born Killers, Pearl Harbor, and Black Hawk Down. However, Sizemore may be best known for his role as Sgt. Mike Horvath in the hit movie Saving Private Ryan.
Throughout his career, Sizemore had been open about his struggles with drugs, which also caused a string of legal issues to occur. In 2003, he was convicted on domestic violence charges related to his relationship with Heidi Fleiss. Then in a 2010 interview with Larry King, he disclosed he was addicted to cocaine, heroin and meth and participated in the 2010 season of the show Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.
