Bill Murray was left bleeding from a nasty head wound after injuring himself during a 'dumpster dive' stunt for a U.S. TV show on Wednesday (21Jul10).
The Ghostbusters funnyman leaped into a makeshift dumpster swimming pool filled with garbage as part of a skit for the Late Show with David Letterman to mock official plans for trash-bin swimming holes in New York City.
But Murray's funny moment went awry when he banged his head in the jump and staggered back on to the show's set covered in blood.
The actor bravely continued his interview with the host, and producers were able to patch up his injury during a break in filming.
A rep tells the New York Post, "He did hit his head on the dumpster and was bleeding during the interview with Letterman, but the producers patched him up in the commercial break."
Murray later cancelled plans to attend a screening of his new film Get Low in Manhattan in order to recover from his traumatic day.
