James Cromwell hospitalized after cycling accident.

Quote:
James Cromwell was injured in a fall from his bicycle over the weekend and was expected to be released from a hospital Monday, his publicist said. Cromwell, 68, suffered a broken collarbone and a partially deflated lung, according to a statement released Monday by publicist Nancy Seltzer.

She said Cromwell is a serious cyclist who was training on a Los Angeles-area canyon road Sunday when he fell from the bike.

Cromwell starred in the "Babe" movies and recently portrayed the first President Bush in "W." Seltzer said Cromwell would be well enough to complete his work schedule on the new TV drama "My Own Worst Enemy."
Quoted from AP article.

Interesting.
E! magazine says 'he just fell'.

BBC cites a training accident.

And AFP calls it a 'traffic accident'.

Ah, the mass media...

And, oddly enough, none of them mention if he was wearing a helmet...

At least his recovery time has been lengthened with the cancellation of My Own Worst Enemy

I wonder how many times I've confused James Cromwell with William Hurt.
The pic in that AP photo looks like Hurt to me.

Yep...I just checked IMDB, and James Cromwell was Jack Bauer's dad on 24.
I watched that ENTIRE SEASON thinking it was William Hurt.

Hope he's OK..being better than 400 years old can take a toll, even with a mild crash!
