Ben McKenzie Suffers Head Injury On Gotham Set
The former O.C. star posts pictures of himself getting stitches on Instagram...
McKenzie, who plays James Gordon in the upcoming series, posted a shot of his bandaged forehead to Instagram after getting injured on set on Friday (12 September).
The star explains that he was hurt filming a fight scene - and it all happened on his 36th birthday!
"Happy Birthday to me. Fight sequence gone awry. Don't ram your head into concrete pillars kids. #gotham," he wrote.
The actor went on to poke fun at the accident, posting a close-up of the wound along with the caption: "Holy concrete wall, Batman!"
McKenzie received stitches for his head injury at the New York-Presbyterian hospital.
He thanked doctors for his treatment with a follow-up snap, and confirmed that his injury wouldn't keep him off set for long.
"Doc Sherman at New York-Presbyterian, you are a career saver", he wrote on Instagram.
"Thanks for stitching me up nice. Back to work Monday. #gotham."
Gotham debuts on Fox in the US on Monday 22 September, and will be shown on Channel 5 in the UK.
