​Neil Patrick Harris Undergoes Surgery Due to Sea Urchin Injury
Neil Patrick Harris is recovering after an unusual injury that left him infected and in need of surgery.
 
Earlier this week, the How I Met Your Mother actor revealed that he had suffered a freak accident involving a sea urchin back in the summer while he climbing cliffs in Croatia.
 
His hand landed on a sea urchin and while he managed to get most of the spikes out himself, two remain lodged in his hand and one became infected. Apparently, it had pierced a tendon, requiring surprisingly intense surgery.
 
Thankfully, Harris says he is now "officially urchin free and on the mend."

In happier news, Harris has also landed a role in the upcoming The Matrix 4 film. Hopefully, there won't be any sea urchins on set.
 
Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss will reprise their roles in The Matrix 4, while Yahya Abdul-Mateen II was also announced as one of the leads.
