Ed Asner hospitalized after stage performance

Veteran actor Ed Asner, 83, left the stage in the middle of a performance last night and was taken to a hospital “due to exhaustion,” his reps have confirmed to EW.

“While performing his one-man show FDR in Gary, Ind., last night, Ed Asner had to be taken off-stage due to exhaustion and is resting comfortably at a Chicago-area hospital. [He] is expected to be released later today,” his publicist said in a statement.

TMZ first broke the story, reporting that Asner was escorted off-stage and taken to a hospital for treatment after he began struggling with his lines. “He is being assessed right now and what I can say is that it was not a stroke. That much we do know,” Asner’s son Matt told TMZ.
