Ike Barinholtz sports a neck brace while appearing on stage during the Hulu portion of the 2017 TCA Summer Press Tour on Thursday (July 27) at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.
The 40-year-old actor recently broke his neck during a fall on the set of his upcoming movie The Pact.
During the panel with The Mindy Projectco-star Mindy Kaling, it was revealed that Ike‘s injury will be written into the sixth and final season of the series.
“She said instantly we’re going to write you in the show, we’re going to make sure you’re safe,” Ike said (via Deadline) about his emotional phone call with Mindy in which he told her about his injury. “I started crying and then there was a beat where she said ‘Do you think it would be OK if Morgan broke his neck while falling out of his bunk bed?’ And we both immediately started laughing.”
