Although he noticed his left hand's finger was bent right back and dislocated, he still continued with the scene until he did some punches.
Martial arts star Jackie Chan broke his finger during a fight scene in his new film "The Spy Next Door" - and had to snap it back into place or risk stalling the movie.
Chan noticed the little finger on his left hand was bent right back and dislocated before he felt any pain - and decided to continue with the scene. He says, "I still do two punches, otherwise you have to do it (scene) all over again. I go, pow, pow and then, 'Cut!' and then I put it (finger) back."
It's not the first time Chan has been seriously injured while making a movie - he fractured his ankle during "Rumble in the Bronx" when he landed awkwardly after jumping from a bridge to a hovercraft.
He recalls, "The cameraman (said), 'Jackie, are you OK?' I said, 'Did you got the shot (sic)?' 'Yes I got the shot.' 'OK, send me to the hospital.'" The tough guy admits he was back on the set, with a cast wrapped around his ankle, an hour later.
