LOS ANGELES (AP) — A publicist says 81-year-old Oscar-winning actor Alan Arkin was hospitalized after a minor stroke but was fine and back reading scripts on Friday.
Arkin, who won supporting actor Academy Awards for 2006’s “Little Miss Sunshine” and 2009’s “Argo,” suffered the “mini-stroke” on Monday and was released from the hospital the next day, said publicist Melody Korenbrot.
She added Arkin was home reading a script for a possible new movie. In addition to his two Academy Awards, the actor was Oscar-nominated for “The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming” and “The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter” in the 1960s.
Arkin, who has acted in several dozen films in a nearly 60-year career, appears in this weekend’s new holiday dramedy “Love the Coopers.”
