The 54-year-old actor - who starred as convict John Coffey in 1999 prison drama The Green Mile alongside Tom Hanks - was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital on Friday after being discovered by his girlfriend Omarosa Stallworth.

According to TMZ, Omarosa - who has been dating the actor since 2010 - is said to have performed CPR and resuscitated him after finding him in a state of cardiac arrest around 02:00.


Sources told the publication that his heart rate is now stable and doctors are performing tests. Omarosa is understood to be by his bedside.
