Tom Sizemore is returning to the stage in a new play titled "A Family Thing," by Gary Lennon, which will begin performances in February at L.A.'s Stage 52, in a production by the Echo Theater Company.

"A Family Thing" is scheduled to run Feb. 16 to March 24. The comedy-drama revolves around three brothers in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood of New York City. Lennon has been a writer for the TV shows "Justified" and "The Shield," both on FX. 

Sizemore's most notable screen credits include supporting roles in "Heat," "Bringing Out the Dead," "Natural Born Killers" and "Saving Private Ryan." ("Bringing Out the Dead" also took place in Hell's Kitchen.)

In recent years, however, Sizemore has been more famous for his substance abuse problems and run-ins with the law. He even landed a part in the third season of the VH1 reality series "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew."

The actor has since stated that he is sober. Last year, he presented a private reading of his one-man show "i Am Not Sam" at the Geffen Playhouse.  

Lennon's play "The Interlopers," about the relationship between two pre-op transsexuals, was presented last year at the Bootleg Theater in Los Angeles.
