Playing action hero role is risky instead of easy. Jackie Chan is one real example. The action film star injured his chest while filming the highly anticipated "Rush Hour 3."
Chan, who first injured his chest in March when a stuntman wearing the wrong shoes kicked him while shooting his recent film "Rob-B-Hood", hurt his chest again while filming a fight scene for the next installment of "Rush Hour".
As for the latest incident, the actor was hit by a steel-reinforced wooden table. Luckily, doctors claimed it wasn't a major injury, the actor said in a posting on his Web site dated Nov. 27.
"Rush Hour 3," directed by Brett Ratner, is due for release next year.
