GARY, Ind. – Ed Asner’s publicist says the 83-year-old actor, who has been touring the country performing a one-man show for more than three years, has been hospitalized with exhaustion.
Publicist Charles Sherman told The Associated Press that Asner was taken off stage at the Marquette Pavilion in Gary on Tuesday night.
Sherman said Asner was taken by ambulance to a Chicago-area hospital where he is “resting comfortably” and is expected to be released later Wednesday.
He said the actor, best known for his roles in TV’s “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and its spin-off “Lou Grant,” has been touring the nation portraying President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in “FDR” for 3 1/2 years.
