I just had to make sure I didn't shoot my stunt guy that was sitting next to me - which I almost did

Actor Christopher Meloni almost shot his stunt double on the set of new movie Man of Steel after his gun misfired during filming.

The former Law and Order Special Victims Unit star plays Colonel Nathan Hardy in the latest Superman reboot and he spent weeks undergoing weapons training for the project - however Meloni admits he almost caused a fatal injury.

He tells New York Magazine, "We did some weapons training - shooting guns, making transitions from one weapon to another. I just had to make sure I didn't shoot my stunt guy that was sitting next to me - which I almost did. I pulled out the weapon one time, and it went off. It was loaded with blanks and exploded out, and it put a hole in the seat".
