Citing "fatigue and lack of sleep resulting from symptoms of a yet-to-be diagnosed neurological disorder," Van Dyke, 87, will remain in his home in Malibu, with his wife Arlene, and not fly east for a scheduled ceremony at Manhattan's 92nd Street Y, according to spokesman Bob Palmer.

There's more adulation in store for him Jan. 27, when the Dick Van Dyke Show and Diagnosis Murder star will receive the Life Achievement Award at the Screen Actors Guild Awards (airing on TNT and TBS). "This was a surprise," he confesses. "People think of me as a song and dance entertainer. To be accepted by my peers as an actor is really a thrill."
