Joe Manganiello hospitalised with 'extremely serious' appendicitis
Sources close to the actor told TMZ that Joe went into the hospital a few days ago to have his appendix removed, with one saying that doctors were alarmed to discover that Joe's appendix had ruptured. The Magic Mike XXL star is now said to be recovering in hospital.
It was previously suggested that Joe was forced to drop out of the History Channel project because of a pre-existing condition, which was believed to be due to an old bicep injury which occurred when he tore the muscle during filming of Magic Mike.
Production has now been delayed on the television programme while his role is recast, a rep for the History Channel confirmed to Us Weekly.
The eight-part military mini-series follows a Navy SEAL Team, whose mission to eliminate a Taliban leader in Afghanistan goes awry when they uncover a US citizen working with the terrorists. Magic Mike star Joe had been cast as the squad's leader, Rip Taggart.
