Houdini & Doyle stuntman injured in Torture Cell break

If you thought the Water Torture Cell glass breaking scene in Monday's episode of Houdini & Doyle looked frighteningly real, that's because it was! According to actor Michael Weston, the stuntman doubling him as Houdini was even injured and taken to the hospital.

For those keeping score, we've now seen Houdini fail to escape from his Water Torture Cell in Houdini (1953), The Great Houdinis (1976), Houdini (1998), Houdini Miniseries (2014), and now Houdini & Doyle (2016). Of course, in real life, Houdini always made it.

Houdini & Doyle airs every Monday at 9/8c on FOX. You can also watch episodes at FOX NOW.

  1. Maybe they should have used the steel grill that HH worked with in the early days of the USD? It was supposed to protect the occupant from jagged glass when the water rushed out after an ax strike.
