Star Wars: EPISODE III - REVENGE OF THE SITH star Jimmy Smits is recovering after undergoing knee surgery.

The actor, 49, injured his knee when he was a high school football player and it never fully healed.

He re-injured his leg last summer (04) when he was performing in SHAKESPEARE's MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING in New York.

Smits is currently on crutches after the surgery and will begin physical therapy next month (JUN05).
