Sources close to the actor tell TMZ Tony -- who suffers from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease -- was at a Henderson, NV Costco on Wednesday debuting his latest artwork products when he began to have trouble breathing.

We're told Tony was taken to a local hospital ... where he's still holed up while doctors conduct tests.

Sources say Tony is in stable condition and will hopefully be released soon.

Hey Tony, not to worry, Asthma and COPD is no problem for people like us anymore. Get your butt on Octacosanol and breath as good as you did in " Johnny Dark " in just 5 mins. Why are we the only ones who remembers that movie, even L. Maltin doesn't list it in his movie guide.
So don't delay there might not be a later in your case and that would be a crime.

I was at Costco that day and saw all the beautiful paintings that Tony painted, displayed. No one was at the booth. I was hoping he was there and wanted to buy one of the paintings but no one was there. No wonder! I sure hope he gets better soon!

I cannot think of even one actor today that matches Tony's Silver Screen popularity. Rest comfortably and get well Acai Max Cleanse
