Entourage star Kevin Connolly breaks leg catching passes from Russell Wilson

Actor Kevin Connolly probably didn't think he needed a stunt double to catch a few passes from Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson on the set of the "Entourage" movie.

And the scene probably was fun, getting to play with the Super Bowl-winning quarterback, until Connolly broke his leg in two places.

Deadline.com had the story of Connolly's mishap, which apparently happened during a take as Wilson threw Connolly a pass, and Connolly and Wilson both tweeted about the accident.


Doug Ellin, the creator and writer of "Entourage," the popular show that ran eight seasons on HBO through 2011, said that Connolly actually caught the ball despite breaking his leg, which is pretty impressive. Shooting  has been able to continue despite the accident, Deadline said.

Wilson has a cameo in the movie, which is slated to come out in 2015. Presumably, the cast is done filming any scenes with Wilson that might leave them on crutches.
