Frankie Muniz- not really a name you hear anymore. The childhood actor, who is best known for his role in the hit sitcom “Malcolm in the Middle” was hospitalized last week after having a mini-stroke.
Sources tell TMZ that Muniz was “having trouble speaking and understanding words” Friday evening. Friends thought he was acting very weird, so they called 911 and had him rushed to an Arizona ER.
Days before his 27th birthday, the actor tweeted about his stroke, saying,
I was in the hospital last Friday. I suffered a “Mini Stroke”, which was not fun at all. Have to start taking care of my body! Getting old!

As the cause of the stroke is still unknown, Muniz was given doctor’s orders to take it easy until further notice.
