Patrick Swayze didn't show for a scheduled appearance at a press event for the Television Critics Association in Los Angeles today because he has been hospitalized with pneumonia.
"As we arrived here this morning we have some news," A&E president Abbe Raven said. "Patrick Swayze has checked himself into the hospital. However, he asked us specifically to go forward with today's panel. We wish him the very best with his recovery."
Another A&E rep said that it was Patrick's decision to skip the media conference for his new show, The Beast, and check himself in the medical facility. The Dirty Dancing actor is currently battling pancreatic cancer.
Get well soon!
