When we found out that Frankie Muniz had suffered a stroke, we made a pained and confused face very similar to his trademark expression on Malcolm In The Middle. Because last time we checked, isn’t this dude, like, nine years old? OK, it’s been a long time since he’s played the precocious pre-teen on the long running show. But he’s still wayyy too young to be having strokes. He turns 27 tomorrow for goodness sake. Let’s hope he’s well enough for some cake.
The former child star posted his health update to his twitter early this morning. “I was in the hospital last Friday. I suffered a “Mini Stroke”, which was not fun at all,” he wrote. “Have to start taking care of my body! Getting old!” Awww, be careful Frankie! If anything happens to you, we’ll be bawling harder than we were at the end of My Dog Skip.
Frankie (as we guess he’s still known) has had an eventful life out of the spotlight since his teen movie heyday. He’s famously tried his hand at professional race-car driving, and more recently joined the band Kingsfoil. But he hasn’t totally retired from acting. Just this year he put in guest spots on Last Man Standing and Don’t Trust The B—– In Apartment 23. We don’t have any further updates on him at the moment, but we’ll let you know.
