That Time Steve Zahn Almost Died While Shooting That Thing You Do

Tom Everett Scott: That was the day that started off with a Swiss crane crashing and virtually killing Steve Zahn.
Steve Zahn: That was insane. That virtually landed on my head.
Scott: I set to work, they usually have been like, ‘Did you hear about the crane?’
Zahn: I used to be plugged into the sound sales space, and I had headphones on. I used to be enjoying my half, practising, and I lookup and I see fluorescent lights falling, and I see this crane coming proper in the direction of me. And I jumped out of the way in which, and it lands on the cart. I bit my decrease lip, and it was bleeding, and I first thought ‘I don’t need to get it on my costume’. So I used to be over a trash can, and Tom [Everett Scott] walks in, he doesn’t know what’s happening, and he appears to be like at me and sees the blood, and he begins laughing like I’m pulling a joke on him, and I’m like ‘No, dude, this is real.’ And we really needed to shoot the scene in a different way in order that I had a proof for a lower lip or one thing like that.
Scott: I really thought the crane hit simply your lip.
