spider man injured gma Injured 'Spider Man' actor Chris Tierney not discouraged by whole 'almost dying' thing

Broadway’s “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” is finally getting some good publicity. Chris Tierney, who fell 30 feet during a Dec. 20 performance, is finally well enough to do press — and he’s making it very clear that he still wants to be a part of the production.

In an with “Good Morning America’s” George Stephanopoulos, Tierney says he can’t wait to get back to work.

“Oh yeah, the moment I get the OK from my doctors,” he says. “I have a bunch of screws in my back right now, but.. I’m going as aggressively as I can go through my physical therapy. And the moment I feel like I’m good, I’m back in the show. I can’t wait.”

There’s no word on exactly how long that will take, but Tierney’s injuries were pretty extensive. He broke four ribs and three vertebrae and fractured his scapula, elbow and the back of his head.

Tierney was joined in his “GMA” interview with leads Reeve Carney, Jennifer Damiano, Patrick Page and exiting Natalie Mendoza’s recently announced replacement, T.V. Carpio. The guns pointed at their backs were not visible.
