The TV and stage star was hospitalised in Los Angeles on Tuesday (17Mar09) for an unknown medical complaint while on tour with hit play Frost/Nixon in the U.S., and now his aides have confirmed the 67-year-old Mike Hammer star experienced a mild stroke.
His spokesman DICk Guttman insists Keach is in a "stable condition" and reps for the actor reveal he has suffered "no impairment whatsoever" of his motor or speech abilities from the stroke.
A source says, "He remains in hospital for observation and routine precautionary procedures. The producers of Frost/Nixon look forward to his speedy recovery and to his return to the show as soon as he is able."
