Didn't something like that happen to Viggo Mortinson (I bet I'm spelling that wrong) in lotr? Broke his foot kicking a helmut, I think.
So I've been told

During the filming of Two Towers he kicked an Urukai helmet in anger (thought merry and pippin had been killed) then broke his toe.

Also, Orlando Bloom broke his ribs when his Size/Stunt double fell on him.

In The Two Towers, he broke his foot kicking an Uruk-Hai helmet. The cry of anger he gives in that scene is actually a cry of agony.

He also had a real knife accidentally thrown at him in one scene (fortunately, he deflected it with his sword), and almost drowned due to the weight of his equipment.

The scene where Ian McKellen (Gandalf) bumps his head into the roof of Bag End was also an accident, and not in the script. Peter Jackson kept it anyways.

He broke his toe, not the entire foot.


Trying not to sound like an ass.

Yeah, it was just a toe, imagine breaking your whole foot on something that small. (besides he didnt break because of the helmet, it broke because he hit the ground with hit) Such great actors, dont panic when they have to improvise...
