Brendan Fraser injured

Actor Brendan Fraser was injured on the set of his new movie in Montreal. The star, who lived in Canada for several years, was reportedly rehearsing a stunt for the movie Journey 3-D when he suffered burns on his hand.

Fraser was treated by a medic but his publicist downplays the incident and says the actor has only a minor injury.

He is expected back on set later this week.
