Ed Asner was hospitalized for exhaustion Tuesday night in Gary, Ind., after struggling with disorientation during his one-man show, "FDR."
The show started 45 minutes late, the paper said, and Asner struggled with lines from the beginning. He was reportedly walked off stage by emergency medical personnel about 15 minutes into the performance. An audience member told the Sun-Times that Asner apologized before leaving the stage and said he'd return when he could.
A Thursday show planned for Ohio was canceled, according to the Greenville Sun. The venue in Ohio said Asner was unable to travel to the show, and that it anticipated a rescheduled performance at a later date.
"What I can say is that it was not a stroke," Asner's son Matt told TMZ. "That much we do know." The actor had been feeling "under the weather" for a few weeks prior, he said.
