More from Deadline

“I spent the night in the emergency room. Movie set fight gone wrong. Me against two goons and a chair! Guess who didn’t win! Who needs a stuntman? Me that’s who! I’m not as young as I used to be! CT scan and X-rays showed nothing fractured or broken in my back just a deep contusion. That chair will never be the same though! Bloodied and bowed but never broken! #RQQ #G20 #setlife #moviefights #justakidfromcompton #huskyandhandsome #bidzaddy #acbarbeque

Anderson also shared a photo of the chair that got the better of him.

“This is the chair that whooped my a** last night!” he captioned the post. “Something about it is menacing! It sucker punched me in the kidneys and back with no mercy! When I got on set today it was grinning at me! Little does he know I got something for that a**! He gone learn today!”

G20 is an action thriller directed by Patricia Riggen and written by Logan and Noah Miller. The film centers around terrorists taking over the G20 Summit.
