Actor Stacey Keach, best known for playing “Mike Hammer” in several TV series, had a heart attack during a play at Goodman Theatre in Chicago, according to Director Robert Falls. The 76-year-old Keach is to be released Wednesday, Goodman officials say.

Keach was starring as Earnest Hemingway in the one man play “Pamplona” May 30 when he felt “unwell” and theater officials had to cancel the play halfway through. The entire series of “Pamplona” was subsequently canceled when Keach was diagnosed as having had a heart attack.

Falls has since visited Keach and says he is in good spirits, studying the script, and even asked, “When are we rescheduling?”

Falls is open to rescheduling “Pamplona” for next summer.
