Hollywood legend Mickey Rooney was listed in good condition Thursday following open heart surgery the day before to clear two artery blockages, Reuters reports.

An angiogram test Wednesday at Los Robles Regional Medical Center in Thousand Oaks, Calif., confirmed the blockages, and physicians performed a double coronary bypass operation on the 80-year-old actor, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Rooney is the star of films such as "Boys Town," "The Black Stallion," "Babes in Arms," "National Velvet" and "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn."

GLOVER OK AFTER ACCIDENT: "Lethal Weapon" actor Danny Glover escaped injury Wednesday night after his car was struck by a pizza delivery vehicle.

According to police spokesman Don Cox, no one was injured in the accident, and no one was arrested or cited.

TAKE THAT! Actor-comedian Chris Rock is countersuing Z.com, an online entertainment studio that is suing him for failing to deliver content it had paid him for.

In the countersuit, Rock cites intentional misrepresentation, breach of a written contract, negligence and breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing.

Z.com is seeking interest in addition to repayment of the original $1.075 million it says it paid Rock on April 10.
