“He is extremely weak, so weak that he can’t close his mouth. But he is following commands, which means mental status is coming back! This is a long road, a very long road,” Kloots wrote.

Cordero has been on a ventilator in a Los Angeles hospital since April 1 and had a leg amputated due to COVID-19 complications.

The actor was a Tony nominee for “Bullets Over Broadway” and was last on Broadway in the musical adaptation of “A Bronx Tale.”
