SciFi Wire reports that Dustin Hoffman filmed most of his scenes in the upcoming “J.M Barrie’s Neverland” in a morphine-induced daze after injuring his finger. "I cut off the tip almost to the first joint after the first day of work," Hoffman said in an interview
"I came home, had a drink and I sat down in one of those deck chairs, and that thing came up and just sliced my finger off. I went and spent the night in the hospital and they did surgery. They couldn’t sew it back on, but did what they could and I came the next day. I didn’t miss any work. It was the best experience that I’ve ever had because I was on morphine and I couldn’t remember two lines in a row."
Hoffman says Depp’s father could sympathize with his injury. “I come into [Depp's] camper and the next day his father is visiting him—he’s a coal miner or something—and I’m showing my finger and his dad comes up to me and says, ‘Join the club.’"
