Actor Danny McBride has been hospitalised in North Carolina after suffering an accident on the set of U.S. Tv comedy series Eastbound & DOWN.

The Pineapple Express star took a tumble while shooting a scene on roller blades and was transported to a local medical centre after experiencing a great deal of pain.

The 36 year old has since been discharged after undergoing a precautionary check-up and he tells Tmz.com, "I busted my a** on roller skates. The roller skates won."
