Actor Ed Cibrian was injured Tuesday night while filming a television episode of “The Playboy Club” at a West Side studio, a source said.
Cibrian injured his right heel while running down an alley on the show’s set at Cinespace Studios, 2558 West 16th. The actor received a deep gash on his heel after it caught underneath a 200-pound steel door, the source said.
Cibrian, who is married to country-pop singer LeAnn Rimes, was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
Though the NBC show was cancelled after the third episode aired Monday night, the show’s production company had plans to continue filming in Chicago until Oct. 10 with the hopes of eventually shopping the series to another network.
On Monday, a suspected drunk driver crashed into Cibrian’s California home, according to news reports.
