The forthcoming Entourage film has added an impressive array of sports stars to its line up, including Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski. But having a bunch of high-profile athletes on set has its dangers.

Kevin Connelly, who played Eric Murphy in the HBO series, managed to break his leg in two places during filming in Los Angeles last week.


According to TMZ, Connelly tripped on a sprinkler in an attempt to catch a pass from Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

Entourage creator Doug Ellin said he caught the accident on tape and noted that Connelly caught the ball. Wilson seemed proud of Connelly's efforts.

"My man @kconnolly88 banged up after Running a perfect post route," he wrote on Instagram. "When he gets healthy watch out Wes Welker! #ARealHeartGuy #WhiteLightning."

Connelly reportedly iced his leg and returning to filming the next day.
