Australian actor Anthony LaPaglia was reportedly injured on-set of his latest movie Balibo after a stunt went badly wrong.

The Without A Trace star was hurt after an explosive device discharged into his arm during a scene in which LaPaglia's character is shot.

The device, which creates an authentic gun-shot sound, exploded into LaPaglia's arm instead of firing outwards, which would of looked on camera as if the star had been shot.

The star, who is filming in Darwin, was taken to nearby Royal Darwin Hospital to receive medical treatment, according to Australia's Northern Territory News.

A source tells the publication, "It was the scene where East (LaPaglia's character) was going to get shot. They put the explosives on back-to-front.'' (MJ/WNWCNA/LJ)
