Troubled actor Tom Sizemore, who starred in hit films 'Saving Private Ryan' and 'Black Hawk Down', is all set to write a candid memoir about his struggles with drug addiction.

The 50-year-old actor fell into cocaine and heroin addiction and was accused of domestic violence by 'Hollywood madam' Heidi Fleiss, Daily Star reported.

Now Sizemore has signed a deal with Atria Books to detail his life story in a new tome, which will be published in 2013.

In the book, he will talk about his tough childhood in Detroit, and his rise to fame and subsequent relapse, which led to his appearance on American TV show 'Celebrity Rehab'.

"I should have been dead many times over and honestly, I didn't know that I was going to come back from the bottom I dropped to. The fact that I'm now sober over two years - and that I'm acting as much as I did before - proves that people can overcome obstacles even when they're sure they can't. I hope that this book can inspire other people to never give up," he said.
