Luke Perry suffers stroke

``Riverdale'' and ``Beverly Hills, 90210'' star Luke Perry has been hospitalized, his publicist said Thursday.

Arnold Robinson tells The Associated Press on that the 52-year-old actor is ``currently under observation'' at the hospital.   

Paramedics responded to a 911 call at about 9:30 a.m. Wednesday at a home in the Sherman Oaks section of Los Angeles and took a patient to a hospital, the city's fire department said.

Public records list the address as Perry's.

No reason for the hospitalization or any details on his condition were given.

Perry has played construction-company owner Fred Andrews, father of main character Archie Andrews, for three seasons on ``Riverdale,'' the CW series that gives a dark take on ``Archie'' comics, and has been slated for a fourth.

The CW declined comment on Perry.

Born and raised in rural Fredericktown, Ohio, Perry was tapped for heartthrob status along with Jason Priestley on ``Beverly Hills 90210,'' which ran from 1990 to 2000.

Perry has had roles in a handful of films, including ``The Fifth Element,'' ''8 Seconds`` and ''American Strays.`` He appeared in HBO's prison drama ''Oz`` and voiced cartoons like ''The Incredible Hulk`` and ''Mortal Kombat.`` In recent years he starred in the series ''Ties That Bind`` and ''Body of Proof.``

The same day he was hospitalized, Fox TV announced that it would be running a six-episode return of ``90210'' that features most of the original cast, but Perry was not among those announced.
