Blu Mankuma Reportedly Very Ill  
I just learned from [personal profile] sharpest_asp that one of Blu Mankuma's current coworkers has tweeted that Mankuma is in the hospital and very seriously — "deathly" — ill. Does anyone have additional information? (Google News reveals only that he plays a character named Albert in the new sci-fi romance movie Upside Down (NYT review). No news is good news?)

If you're inclined, prayer never hurts.

Oh no, I'm sorry to hear this. I hope he recovers. Last time I saw him was in an episode of Smallville, I believe, which was filmed in 2010. He looked his usual strong self then.

Well, I can tell you that I'm a friend on his Facebook page (yes, it's really him) and everyone is telling him they hope he feels better soon and he isn't replying like he normally would, so I bet it is true. :(

Just when I post that I get more news. He's recovering. His daughter posted this on his wall:

“Our dad is doing really well and continues to improve. Although he was very ill when he arrived at the hospital, he is recovering beautifully, is out of the woods, and on his way to the rehabilitation stage of his healing to regain his strength. We have tried to maintain his privacy during this time, but he is just too popular a guy for that, and facebook makes it impossible! He is aware of all your love and well wishes. He looks better than ever and will no doubt be back to business soon. He is feeling the love!”
