Sizemore was born in Detroit, Michigan, where his mother was a member of the ombudsman’s staff and his father worked as a lawyer and philosophy professor.
His early roles included appearances in Oliver Stone’s Born on the Fourth of July in 1989, as well as Point Break and Natural Born Killers.
He also starred in the independent drama Love is Like That in 1993 with actress and model Pamela Gidley and had a supporting role in Kevin Costner’s Wyatt Earp as Bat Masterson in 1994. For his work in Heart and Souls in 1993, Sizemore was nominated for the Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actor.
