NEW YORK, Aug. 2 (UPI) -- Matthew Broderick's representative says the U.S. actor is fine after undergoing minor back surgery.

Broderick's film credits include "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," "Biloxi Blues," "Glory" and "The Freshman." He has starred on Broadway in "The Producers" and "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying," and signed on to star in the Broadway musical "Nice Work If You Can Get It" next spring.

"Matthew had a sports injury some time ago. He pulled something in his back and recently underwent routine surgery. It was a simple procedure, he is fine and is up and about and back at home," Broderick's spokesman told the New York Post.
