    Apparently he is out of the hospital and doing fine. Still haven’t heard what happened though.

    Not my favourite comedian, to be honest, but he’s actually a very good actor. Does anybody remember way back to “St. Elsewhere”? (I guess I’m showing my age here!) Anyway, I was still shocked to hear he’d been hospitalized and I’m very glad he’s apparently better.
