Tom Sizemore is famous for such movies as Saving Private Ryan and Blackhawk Down and for being a sex-crazed Hollyweird crackhead.
Years ago, he made a move to be even more famous for something else: the guy who proved Suge Knight had The Notorious B.I.G. and 2Pac killed.
Sizemore approached the FBI in 2004 and told them a gang member named "Eight Ball" had told him Suge did Big and Pac. Sizemore, who actually knew Knight from Alcoholics Anonymous, claimed he knew of other gang members who could collaborate that story and was willing to speak to them while wearing a wire.
Sizemore also believed this was all somehow related to a crystal meth ring that had ensnared his younger sister.
"Sizemore will wear a wire or provide any information to help solve the Biggie Smalls murder as well as lead the FBI to take down the largest crystal meth house in California, which he stated as being run by the Mexican Mafia out of a warehouse," read an FBI file.
The file on the bureau's interview with Sizemore was part of a cache of FBI documents obtained by Don Sikorski, who produced the movie City of Lies.
City of Lies, which stars Johnny Depp and focused on the unsolved murders of the two iconic rappers, got a limited release in early 2019 after multiple delays.
“When I was researching this case I found it very disenchanting because at the end of the day someone is dead and these documents exist but no one has seemed to care enough to look into them or put them out there into the public," Sikorski said about the documents he uncovered. “But I’m just one person so by putting these documents out there - I want to encourage other people to really look into this stuff.”
The FBI never took Sizemore up on his offer.
