Injured 'Spider-Man' Actor Is Recovering & Hopes To Rejoin Cast On Broadway! Should He?

Christopher Tierney — who fell 30 feet last week & broke his ribs — is still in the hospital, but eager to get back onstage. Is he nuts?

Surrounded by family, stunt double Christopher Tierney spent the holidays in a hospital after injuries suffered during a preview performance of the upcoming Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark. But the actor’s father assures fans that his son is not only up and walking, but that he also hopes to return to the troubled production as soon as he can!

Christopher’s father Tim Tierney told the Associated Press, “They’re eagerly awaiting his return. He just felt so blessed to be part of this whole creative process, and he just cannot wait to get back and perform in the show.”

A faulty rope caused Christopher to fall during a Dec. 20 preview of the troubled musical, which left the actor with broken ribs and internal bleeding. This has been the third injury on set – and the show hasn’t even opened yet! He was bedridden until Dec. 24, when he was able to walk for the first time since his injury.

Julie Taymor, the show’s director and co-writer, came to visit Christopher in the hospital on Christmas Eve.

We know the musical is a huge opportunity for Christopher, but he should focus on his recovery and leave the web-slinging to those without injuries. We don’t want your family to worry about you any more!
