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.

Former Treasurer’s Office Employees File Suit

Republican gubernatorial candidate State Treasurer Dan Rutherford participates in a Republican gubernatorial candidate debate Tuesday, Feb. 18, 2014, in Springfield, Ill. The four Republican gubernatorial candidates said that they’ll be willing to work with unions if elected but differed on how to approach the relationship during a downstate debate that largely focused on pension reform, taxes and just briefly on personal issues that have dogged some of the candidates.

The suit is the latest chapter in a saga involving sexual harassment claims that undercut Rutherford's 2014 campaign for governor.
