Actor Dennis Hopper was rushed to a New York City hospital this afternoon. Hopper recently wrapped-up his participation at the Taos Summer of Love, celebrating the 40th anniversary of his iconic NM film Easy Rider, and “Hopper at the Harwood”, an exhibit of his original artwork.
Hopper was in NYC to promote Crash, the Starz television series which films here in New Mexico. He was scheduled to appear on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and the Today Show.
His publicist states he is “merely suffering from flu-like symptoms”. We wish him a speedy recovery.
