Since Malcolm in the Middle went off the air in 2006, Frankie Muniz has become a common “where are they now?” candidate, despite having a career that hasn’t fallen off as much as, say, Dewey’s. He was in Walk Hard as Buddy Holly, appeared in recent episodes of Last Man Standing and Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23, joined a pop-rock band called Kingsfoil, and competed in a number of car race events things. Muniz also turned into a guy who says the word “CRUSHED” unironically — and he suffered a stroke this week. At the age of 26.
The Malcolm in the Middle star revealed on Twitter yesterday that he had suffered a mini stroke, and on Wednesday’s Good Morning America, the actor offered up additional details.
“I couldn’t say words. I thought I was saying them. My fiancée was looking at me as if I was speaking a foreign language,” Muniz recalled, saying he was riding his motorcycle in Phoenix on Friday when he lost his vision in one eye and his body became numb. (Via)
Malcolm in the middle suffering a stroke really makes you question your own morality, doesn’t it? One minute you’re watching Malcolm in the Middle, laughing at one of Francis’s wacky adventures in the military ( > when he was in Alaska) the next you’re in Hell, waiting to get through the pearly gates with Malcolm Young in front of you (he knows what he did) and some dude named Middle behind you. Luckily, Muniz seems fine now, so he can continue to not respond to idiots on Twitter who ask what it’s like to have a meth kingpin for a dad.
