Former Beverly Hills, 90210 actor Luke Perry has been hospitalized after suffering some sort of medical episode.

Multiple reports out of Hollywood state that Perry, 52, suffered a “massive stroke” on Wednesday, but as of this writing, Global News hasn’t confirmed that as the cause of his hospitalization.

Perry’s representative, Arnold Robinson, confirmed to Global News that the actor is “currently under observation at the hospital,” but didn’t elaborate on his specific health condition.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to Perry’s home address around 9:40 a.m. after a “medical assistance” call. Authorities said that one person was transported to an undisclosed Los Angeles-area hospital, but they would not confirm it was Perry.

Coincidentally, a 90210 reboot (of sorts) — not featuring Perry but the majority of the original cast — was confirmed on the same day.

He currently stars on Riverdale as Archie Andrews’ dad, Fred.

Born and raised in rural Fredericktown, Ohio, Perry was tapped for heartthrob status along with Canadian Jason Priestley on 90210, which ran from 1990 to 2000.

Perry has had roles in a handful of films, including The Fifth Element, 8 Seconds and American Strays. He appeared in HBO’s prison drama Oz and voiced cartoons like The Incredible Hulk and Mortal Kombat. In recent years he starred in the series Ties That Bind and Body of Proof.

Perry’s former costars and friends, including Shannen Doherty and Ian Ziering, took to social media to share their condolences.
