Actor Kevin Connolly is recovering after breaking his leg while filming a scene for the “Entourage” movie last week.

The 40-year-old was shooting a scene with Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson in Miami on March 19 when he snapped his leg in two places.

In a message on Twitter.com, he writes, “Pain management advice from a Super Bowl champ!!! #brokenleg @DangeRussWilson,” along with a picture of himself with an icebag on his leg.

Despite his injury, Connolly went on to film the next scene and reported for work the following day.

Rice replaces ice in India bucket challenge

An Indian school boy eats a midday meal provided free at a government school in Hyderabad, India, Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013. India has offered free midday school meals since the 1960s in an effort to persuade poor parents to send their children to school, a program that reaches some 120 million children. The country now plans to subsidize wheat, rice and cereals for some 800 million people under a $20 billion scheme to cut malnutrition and ease poverty.

The famous "ice bucket" challenge is inspiring thousands of Indians to follow suit, but with a twist - they are replacing ice with rice to help the country's hungry people.
