Look at this BAMF. You can tell Dominic Purcell got beat up pretty bad in an injury on the set of FOX's "Prison Break" revival, but his Instagram shows a guy in great spirits, joking around and thanking supporters, like "close friend and brother" Wentworth Miller.

According to Collider, Purcell (who plays Lincoln Scofield to Miller's Michael Scofield) had a head injury and a broken nose when a heavy set piece fell and hit him while they were filming in Morocco.

Production hasn't stopped, but Purcell is taking a break and will shoot his scenes when he returns. Here's FOX's statement:

"Our friend and colleague Dominic Purcell was injured earlier this week during the filming of our event series 'Prison Break,' and was flown to a medical facility where he received treatment. We are happy to report that he is in great spirits and is expected to make a full recovery. He wanted us to express his appreciation to the fans around the world who have expressed their concern and support, and to reassure them that he will be back at work very soon."


Purcell has spent the past few days updating fans on his condition, and his Instagram is filled with some interesting "Prison Break" notes, so read the captions carefully:

Can't describe my deep love and gratitude to my close friend and brother @wentworthmilleractorwriter his concern for my health was his first priority. Went is holding up the fort in my absence his leadership and care is inspirational. He's taken control taken it upon himself to push the production and lead by example.

Based on that, it sounds like he is indeed "lucky to be alive" now, so no wonder he's staying positive and grateful (although anxious to get home). He's tired of being told to get well soon, but ... heal fast, man!

The FOX event series will premiere Thursday in midseason.
