Actor Ben McKenzie could have had a better birthday this week. That’s because, while filming on the set of his show Gotham on Friday and, yes, on his birthday, he managed to run into a pillar and give himself a head injury.
The 36-year-old actor made fun of himself, though, soon after by posting a photograph showing him nursing a big laceration and with the words “Happy Birthday to me. Fight sequence gone awry. Don’t ram your head into concrete pillars kids. #gotham.
A few hours later, a second Instagram photo of Ben McKenzie having stitches was also uploaded with the words, “Doc Sherman at New York-Presbyterian, you are a career saver. Thanks for stitching me up nice. Back to work Monday. #gotham”.
Get well soon, Ben. Hope you don’t have too big of a headache once the painkillers wear off.
