Just saw this on our local news:



Michael McKean, the actor best known to metal heads as David St. Hubbins of "Spinal Tap" fame, was seriously injured when he was hit by a car while crossing a Manhattan street today. He's got a broken leg and was in critical condition for a while, though this report sez he's now been upgraded to stable condition.

Ouch! Sounds like he got severely effed up. Here's wishing "David St. Hubbins" a speedy recovery!!

Talk about WOW.  I can't believe it.  I hope he will be okay.  I love that guy!   Holy shat.   MICHAEL McKEAN.  He was "Lenny" for one credit.  Huge talent.

Michael McKean is in stable condition after being struck by a car in New York City. The star of "This Is Spinal Tap" and too many other beloved comedies to name suffered a broken leg and is currently recovering at St. Luke's Hospital in Manhattan.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
