Comedian Mac in Chicago hospital
Award winning Hollywood Comedian Bernie Mac is suffering from pneumonia and admitted in a hospital in home town at Chicago. Winner of numerous award nominations including two at the Emmys and the Golden Globes, Mac acted last year's hit Ocean's Thirteen and Transformers.
Comedian Bernie Mac has spent the weekend in a Chicago hospital after coming down with pneumonia, his publicist has said.
Danica Smith said in a statement that the 50-year-old was "responding well to treatment and will be released soon".
Ms Smith added the pneumonia was not related to an inflammatory lung disease the comedian also has. That condition has been in remission since 2005.
Mac starred in his own US sitcom, The Bernie Mac Show, from 2001 to 2006.
