Actor Kevin Connolly is recovering after breaking his leg while filming a scene for the “Entourage” movie last week.

The 40-year-old was shooting a scene with Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson in Miami on March 19 when he snapped his leg in two places.

In a message on Twitter.com, he writes, “Pain management advice from a Super Bowl champ!!! #brokenleg @DangeRussWilson,” along with a picture of himself with an icebag on his leg.

Despite his injury, Connolly went on to film the next scene and reported for work the following day.
