Troubled actor Tom Sizemore has turned down a role in forthcoming movie THE FIFTH COMMANDMENT in a final bid to kick his drug addictions for good.

The BLACK HAWK DOWN star - who's fought a long-standing battle with substance abuse - is taking a break from making movies to give himself enough time to rebuild his shattered life.

He says, "I want it to be over - for me - for this nightmare of drug abuse to be over with and to get on with my career.

"After some careful consideration and a long talk with my parents, I've decided to turn it down until I get 30 to 60 days sobriety.

"The reason I don't want to do the movie is real simple. I need some clean time, some real clean time."
