Tom Green breaks his legUnfortunately, we don't mean that figuratively.

Comedian Tom Green shattered his tibia while skateboarding and will have surgery on Thursday -- and will broadcast footage of the surgery on his Internet talk show, "Tom Green Live." Viewers can check out the footage of the surgery after it happens, as well as footage of the accident (available now), at TomGreen.com.

"I am having a bad year for injuries. First, the broken ribs in Costa Rica after getting hit by a wave, now this. To make matters worse, I need surgery," Green says. "So on Thursday I will be bringing my video camera, and will be getting put under general anesthetic and operated on. They will be putting screws and a metal plate into the bone in my leg."

This isn't the first time Green has brought cameras into the O.R. In March 2000, he was diagnosed with testicular cancer and documented the surgery showing doctors removing his right testicle.
