Tom Green Breaks a Leg

9/19/2006 6:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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

"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.

here's some news for you TMZ let's read your take on this??

Brad Pitt is reportedly being lined up to replace Tom Cruise in 'Mission: Impossible IV'. Tom was recently dropped by Paramount Studios dropped because of his "unacceptable conduct" in public and the lacklustre box office takings of the third film in the franchise.
Now it seems bosses are set to turn to Brad to rescue the ailing franchise.

One industry insider told Britain's London Light newspaper: "'Mission: Impossible IV' will not include Tom's character, agent Ethan Hunt.

U Know Who    

Well Long Duck, your surfboard (HARD FIBERGLASS) smashes into your mid-section, as you get pummeled by a wave. And your rib not so hard bone, breaks kinda a common surf injury, along with broken nose due to same.

Are ALL Canadians dim witted or just you?

Geez, cut Tom Green some slack! He was actually fishing in Costa Rica when he got beat up by a wave...he almost died. He was original and talented once upon a time...I'm sure if given the right project we'd see him do well again. He was fun to watch as a Jay Leno correspondent and was still working in the industry... He was a broadcasting student, got his degree, and alas is still broadcasting- just not in that jack ass sort of way that made him famous,

He should make Canada proud. It's the American media that ruined his credibility. He got burned.

too bad Tom Green sucks the life out of the world.

I am glad he broke his leg.

Hopefully they mistake poison for general anethstetic and kill him.

Tom Green is a f&%$ing loser jerk-off who should just go away once and for all. He's got about as much talent as a pastrami sandwich. Many Canadians are extremely gifted humorists, but his guy is a f$#%ing embarrassment.
