Enthusiastic Wii Sports session lands actor in ER

The wrist strap can't save you from everything that could possibly go wrong while playing Wii games -- especially if a pesky light fixture just happens to jump in the way while you're getting your tennis on. That's what happened to actor Zachary Levi, star of NBC's upcoming Chuck. He served a little too enthusiastically in Wii Sports tennis, and put his hand through the light with so much force "there were shards of glass in the wall." We can only hope it ended in an ace.

Levi's mishap resulted in a trip to the emergency room and fourteen (!) stitches. But hey, at least he didn't sue, like some folks. After all, it's not like Nintendo put the light there. But take it from Levi, and look up before you serve.
