“I ruptured a tendon in my hand shooting a promo for ‘Bad Grandpa’ at a frat house,” Mr. Knoxville said. “Someone dosed me with ecstasy and after that the wheels fell off.”

When asked how the injury occurred, Mr. Knoxville flippantly replied, “Who knows.”

“Are you still high right now?” TMZ asked.

“I wish,” he said. “I wasn’t mad at all. I hadn’t done it since my twenties. I was like ‘this is awesome.’”
