Stacy Keach hospitalized

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Actor Stacy Keach, in Los Angeles with a touring production of the play "Frost/Nixon," was hospitalized on Tuesday for an undisclosed health problem, his representative said.

Keach, 67, plays late former U.S. President Richard Nixon in the stage production of "Frost/Nixon."

"Actor Stacy Keach was hospitalized this morning (March 17) and is in a Los Angeles hospital in stable condition," his spokesman Dick Guttman said in a statement.

He said further details would be released on Wednesday.

Keach is perhaps best known for his portrayal of detective Mike Hammer on the 1980s television show of the same name. From 2005 to 2007, he starred in the TV drama "Prison Break."

His film roles include a boxer in 1972's "Fat City," a white supremacist in 1998's "American History X" and a preacher in the 2008 "W.", about former President George W. Bush.
