The actor who was seriously injured on the set of "Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark" returned to the Great White Way Friday to see the show.

Christopher Tierney made an appearance in front of the Foxwoods Theatre, nearly three weeks after falling nearly 30 feet while performing a stunt.

Tierney, who suffered broken ribs and a fractured skull, appeared healthy as he signed autographs and spoke to reporters.

"They'll give me the okay when they believe it is cool, and I am going to push my physical therapy, I'm going to push to get back into the show," Tierney said. "I might join the show in a different capacity for a little while before I start doing other things, but they're happy and very optimistic about me rejoining the show."

Tierney added that he does not have a problem watching the scene where he was injured, but can't say the same for members of his family.
