A stuntman working on the final "Harry Potter" movie has been hospitalized following a daring action sequence, just a year after Daniel Radcliffe's body double fell from a harness and suffered severe spinal injuries.

Movie action man Greg Powell, 56, suffered a broken shoulder in a motorcycle crash while filming the final installment in the wizard franchise, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II", last week. The accident, which occurred at the Leavesden Studios in Hertfordshire, England, is said to have happened after Powell's long trench coat became trapped in the rear wheel of the bike, sending him flying into the air, according to Britain's The People newspaper.

Rick Ross Wins First Stage of Moniker Legal Battle

July 05, 2010 02:53:04 GMT


Hip-hop star Rick Ross has reportedly won the first stage of his legal battle against drugs king Ricky Ross - the former convict's injunction against the rapper has been "tossed out" by a judge. The rapper, real name William Leonard Roberts II, has been accused of adopting his stage name from the former cocaine trafficker, who became infamous for running a drug empire in Los Angeles in the 1980s.

Ross warned Roberts he would face a court battle if he did not change his moniker before the release of his upcoming album, "Teflon Don", and the ex-convict kept his word when his legal team filed a trademark infringement lawsuit last month in the California U.S. District Court. Ross was expected to summon rap legend Jay-Z to testify in the case as the "99 Problems hitmaker" was the boss of Def Jam records when Roberts was signed to the label in 2006.
