During an appearance on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!', the British actor revealed that he had the coolest way to get the injury, while surfing.

Dominic Monaghan has confirmed reports he has broken his foot in a freak surfing accident by showing it off on U.S. TV. The "Lord of the Rings" star used a cane to hobble onto comedian Jimmy Kimmel's late-night TV show on Tuesday, April 27, with his left foot in a cast. He told the host, "I always wanted to carry a cane. I feel like a P.I.M.P."

When Kimmel asked what had happened to him, the Brit revealed, "I broke my foot. I broke it in a very cool way... surfing. I broke it with one of the greatest surfers of his generation, a guy called Kalani Robb. I did a very late drop-in and I was looking for my section when I did a floater and my section was a little far away from me, so I was trying to cut in to the wave... I wiped out, and I was so annoyed... that I dug my left foot in to make a right... and I heard an explosion in my brain."

"I broke my metatarsal, which is easily the coolest bone in the world to break - it was the bone that Cartilage magazine has voted the in-vogue bone to break for the past three years. Before that it was the rib."

The English soccer fan is thrilled to share the injury with some of his heroes: "You're in a great gang with people like Stephen Gerrard, who plays for England..., Michael Owen, who plays for England..., Wayne Rooney, who plays for England, and a certain handsome character called David Beckham." Monaghan then showed off an X-ray of his shattered metatarsal on his camera.
