Tom Sizemore Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Thomas Edward Sizemore Jr. was born on 29 November 1961, in Detroit, Michigan USA, of part French ancestry on his mother’s side. Tom Sizemore is an actor and producer, perhaps best known for several supporting roles in movies such as “Saving Private Ryan”, “Blackhawk Down” and “Pearl Harbour”.

So just how rich is Tom Sizemore? Sources have counted Tom’s net worth at over $3 million, which has been accumulated while working as an actor in films and television, working as a producer and also voicing video games during a career spanning more than 25 years.

Tom Sizemore Net Worth $3 Million

Sizemore attended both Michigan State and Wayne State Universities, before finally graduating with a masters degree in theatre from Temple University in 1986. He subsequently moved to New York City to pursue an acting career. The first steps Sizemore took as an actor were in the films ‘Blue Steel’ directed by Kathryn Bigelow co-starring with Jamie Lee Curtis, Ron Silver, Clancy Brown, and ‘Born on the Fourth of July’ directed by Oliver Stone co-starring with Tom Cruise, Kyra Sedgwick and Jerry Levine. This successful start was followed by the films ‘Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man’ directed by Simon Wincer, ‘Heart and Souls’ directed by Ron Underwood, and ‘Natural Born Killers’ directed by Oliver Stone. As a successful supporting actor, these appearances increased Tom Sizemore net worth, as well as establishing his name in Hollywood. Tom continued his great job in acting with ‘Saving Private Ryan’, directed by Steven Spielberg, with Tom Hanks, Edward Burns and Matt Damon, and which increased Tom’s net worth even more when the film got an Online Film Critics Society Award for the Best Ensemble Cast Performance. Afterwards Tom played supporting roles in such audience beloved films as ‘Pearl Harbor’ directed by Michael Bay, ‘Black Hawk Down’ directed by Ridley Scott, and ‘Dreamcatcher’ directed by Lawrence Kasdan which were all beneficial for Tom’s net worth.

Thomas Edward Jr. was not only seen on the big screen, as Sizemore accumulated net worth appearing on television. The most significant part Tom played was in the TV film ‘Witness Protection’ directed by Richard Pearce in the role of Bobby Barton, for which Tom was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Miniseries or Television Film. He also appeared as a guest star in popular TV series including ‘CSI: Miami’ which was produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, ‘Crash’ created by Glen Mazzara, and ‘Hawaii Five-O’ produced by Peter M. Lenkov, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. Sizemore also participated in several reality shows as ‘Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew’ and ‘Sober House’.

Tom Sizemore’s net worth increased even more after he gave his voice to Sonny Forelli in ‘Grand Theft Auto: Vice City’, an open world action-adventure video game produced by Leslie Benzies in 2002, and to Sid Wilson in ’24: The Game’ a third person shooter video game in 2006.

In his personal life, in 1996 Tom Sizemore married actress Maeve Quinlan, but after three years they divorced. He has two sons whose mother is Janelle Mclntire. Despite his stunning career, Tom has suffered from drug addiction, and appeared in the TV program “Celebrity Rehab” in 2010. He was also found guilty of, and imprisoned for assault and battery against Heidi Fleiss, his former girlfriend.

#Quote
1 (2012, on landing Point Break) Kathryn Bigelow and I became really good friends on Blue Steel, her second movie, and subsequently she asked me to do that part in Point Break. I thought it'd do well, but I said, "I can't do this." The part was too small. Willem Dafoe and I were good friends long before we were best friends, and Willem said to me, "Why don't you do it unbilled?" I didn't know what that meant, so I asked him what it meant and I read it again. And he's like, "Come on, do it. It will be fun." She'd also mentioned this other movie, Strange Days, to me and said I might be right for it, but that wasn't really an inducement. It was kind of an inducement, but there were no promises made. I just loved working with her, and my part in Point Break only took a couple of days. But it was a very memorable scene, and I got to be really good friends with Anthony Kiedis. John McGinley and I were friends from New York. So it was a really good experience.
2 (2012, on True Romance) I was cast in the part James Gandolfini ended up playing, initially. I got a call from [casting director] Risa Bramon and I said, "I didn't want to beat Patricia Arquette's ass on camera. I don't want to do that." Tony [Scott], God rest his soul, called me. It's a shame what happened to him, but those were the halcyon days for him. He called me and said, [adopts aggressive British accent] "Man, you're bullshitting me! Come on, man!" And Patricia's his friend. Previously I had been up for Days Of Thunder. I said, "I just don't want to do it. I don't want to beat up Patricia." He said, "Why not?" And all I could say was, "Because I don't want to do it." I was still living in New York and I was sitting on my brownstone's front steps. I said, "Why don't I play Nicholson to Chris Penn's Nicky Dimes?" And he said, "Who will play the other part?" I said, "James Gandolfini?" At that point Jimmy hadn't even done a movie yet. I knew Jimmy from the theater, and I flew out to L.A. I didn't have to read. Jimmy flew up there the day after, and he went for that part. He got cast in it. I played Nicholson and it was great, especially [the] two scenes that were completely improvised, when we interrogate Bronson (Pinchot). Tony just told us, "You've got to just react. Say what you want. Just don't talk over each other." That's the kind of experience it was. It was kind of a rock 'n' roll, just running and gunning kind of thing. It was a different type of movie for Tony. You could tell he was really, really digging it, and everyone was on their game.
3 (2012, on Strange Days) It was a great movie, man. [That year's] Oscar movies are really good. Back in the 1990s, I didn't know I was living in a really great period of movie-making. That movie got largely ignored because Seven just blew us out of the water. It came out the same weekend as Seven. They ignored Strange Days, and it was a great movie. The shoot was 17 weeks and nights. It was hard. It was a really hard movie. It was one of the hardest movies I ever did because I was not healthy. I was wearing down. I was just working a lot, and for 17 weeks and nights I was breaking up with Juliette (Lewis). We were in the movie together, and it was a very difficult time in my life. I was starting to make a lot of money, and I didn't know what to do with it. I was going through a lot of changes. I realized I really had made it, that this dream I had as a kid in Detroit was a reality. I was working with the best people in the business over and over again. And that was both incredibly satisfying and created this internal pressure. You've got to keep up the standard.
4 (2012, on Paparazzi) [Producer] Mel [Gibson] was "Melvin." I was in legal hot water, so that was a very difficult movie for me to do. But the set was the only place where I got any kind of release and that was really good for me. I didn't really enjoy the character so much as I enjoyed being with the crew and being with Mel. Cole [Hauser] was great. It was a difficult time in my life, and it was the beginning of this bullshit that thankfully is over. Thank the Lord. But it wasn't the best movie I ever made.
5 (2012, on Zyzzyx Road) I don't want to talk about that movie. Who really cares? I had fun. I was in legal turmoil. I had a good time doing it. It's just not a very good movie. The female, Katherine Heigl, is wonderful. Katherine Heigl was a movie star. I thought she was going to be one, and it was fun to watch this young actress getting better every day.
6 (2012, on playing Pete Rose in Hustle) I thought my performance was really, really good. I did. Some critics did and some critics didn't, and a lot of people didn't like Pete Rose. I met him; he's easy not to like. I happen to like him. I happen to like him because I was playing him, also. He yelled at me once. "Do you know what it's like to be up in the ninth inning of the World Series with two men on base, you're down by one, there's a 3-2 coming, and you need to get a base hit to win?" I said, "Of course not. I've never been a Major League Baseball player." Then I was about to ask him, "Do you know what it's like to be in front of a camera?" And before I said that, he screamed, "Shut the fuck up!" I said, "Okay." And I knew that it was his story and he was trying to convey to me the pressure, this enormous pressure that he'd been under since he was a young man. Nineteen years old, starting as a shortstop for the Reds and how that pressure became something that he became addicted to conquering. And when he retired as an athlete, the pressure was still succeeding and meeting that challenge. [He] found his way into gambling-he gambled as a player, but he said it went up exponentially, like, 10 times worse after he retired. It was to try to recapture that feeling of, "Wait, I've got to do this. I've got to come through." And it was very, very helpful to me.
7 "For years I fooled myself into thinking I could or even was getting off drugs. People knew I was using but they still hired me for their films. I was grateful back then, but it was what contributed to my downward spiral. People talk about my bizarre behaviour at the 1995 Toronto Film Festival when we were promoting Devil in a Blue Dress (1995). I was so high during that period I don't remember making the movie, let alone promoting it." - Quote from 2001.
8 "Steven [Steven Spielberg] said he was going to give me a second chance, but that he would have me tested throughout the shoot. He said that even if I only started using on the last day of production he'd recast the part and re-shoot everything. He didn't want to be part of my problem." - On his drug problem and Saving Private Ryan (1998).
9 "You must have to want it so badly, if there is any way you can live without it, get out of it. Being an unsuccessful actor is like having a skin disease. Make sure your passion is not misplaced." - On advice to aspiring actors.
10 "I was the star of the class. I got the best roles. I was a very serious actor. Besides me, no one from that class has done anything in the business." - On his time as a drama student at Temple University.
11 Temptation is impossible for me to resist...Come on. This is Hollywood. It's in the job description.
12 I was a wayward kid, a rambunctious and angry teenager, but I found acting as a fifteen-year-old. I saw some movies with Montgomery Clift and James Dean, and I read biographies about them - then Marlon Brando - and I got it in my head that I wanted to be an actor. The first scene I did in an acting class was from "In the Boom Boom Room", by David Rabe. I played "Big Al". It was a very violent and emotional scene, and I liked that - I realized I had it in me.
13 "When he hired me, Oliver [Oliver Stone] said, 'I'm making a table. I have four legs already - Robert Downey Jr., Juliette Lewis, Tommy Lee Jones and Woody Harrelson. And I'm going to have a fifth leg on my table. And if that leg is wobbly, my table is a very fucked-up table, and things fall off of it. You're not going to be a wobbly leg, are ya?' And I said, "No. I won't, I won't, I won't fuck up your table." - On getting the part in Natural Born Killers (1994).
14 I'm a very fortunate actor. I'm blessed to be the position I'm in right now. Hell, I'm blessed to be in any position, you know? There are so many guys who had good lives, great lives, and blew it....I think there are some guys who think they don't deserve to have good lives. They feel they don't deserve their good fortune, so they throw it away. One of my good friends was Chris Farley. Chris blew it. He blew the whole enchilada.
15 "Strangling that girl was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. Number one, it was her first movie. Two, she was really nice. And three, there she was in Winslow, Arizona - the middle of nowhere - with me and Oliver Stone, and she had to get raped and murdered." About his role in Natural Born Killers (1994).
