(Newser) – George Wendt—better known to most as Norm! from Cheers—is hospitalized with chest pains, reports the Chicago Tribune. The 64-year-old actor is expected to make a full recovery, says an official with the Northlight Theatre in Skokie. Wendt was set to begin appearing in a stage production of the Odd Couple this week at the theater, but he had to leave the cast.
