TMZ has obtained the 911 calls placed moments after Hollywood legend Ed Asner got seriously ill during a performance in Indiana Tuesday.

On one call ... the dispatcher says Asner was "sweating profusely" after getting sick during his one-man play "FDR."

Ed was taken to the hospital by ambulance.

The exact nature of the emergency is still unclear -- but as we reported, Ed's son says the actor has been feeling under the weather for a few weeks ... but is now doing fine.

Ed's publicist blamed "exhaustion."

Ed, it's time to wind down and let the talentless millennials be famous. Go to bed and take your meds.

I liked him in lou grant but other than that i can't stand him personally. Because of his left wing politics and so i have never bought anything that he is involved in.

In the movie "up", the voice-overs were pretty bad by Ed. He was already slurring his speech. That animated movie was made years ago.

I don't knock getting old or already having lived. At least old folks got to live in the good old days where they had The Beatles, Sinatra, Streisand, Elvis and MJ instead of Justin Beaver, Lady Kaka, and Adulle.
