Nasty Gash Sends ‘Gotham’ Star Ben McKenzie to the Hospital on His Birthday
The star of the upcoming Gotham series Instagrammed a series of pictures of himself with a deep gash on this side of his head.
The caption read, “Holy concrete wall, Batman! #gotham.”
The 36-year-old actor shared several images on Instagram of himself in hospital.
McKenzie said that he suffered the injury after a fight sequence went wrong and he smashed into a concrete wall.
“Happy Birthday to me. Fight sequence gone awry. Don’t ram your head into concrete pillars kids,” he posted on the social media site, along with a photo of his head with a large plaster on it.
In another photo, a doctor is putting the finishing touches to McKenzie’s stitches after sewing the cut back together.
“Doc Sherman at New York-Presbyterian, you are a career saver. Thanks for stitching me up nice,” he wrote.
Gotham makes its debut Sept. 22 at 8 p.m. on Fox, and Ben is recovering well and will be back to work on Monday.
