Pierce Brosnan passed out on the set of new western SERAPHIM FALLS - after letting a sizzling-hot knife blade slip through his hands. The actor's character, a 19th century wilderness man, had to remove a bullet from his arm and director DAVID VON ANCKEN chose to make the scene as authentic as possible - by heating a knife on a campfire. The Irish star says, "I looked over at these little prop guys who sat there like hobbits burning this thing. Jesus. I actually put it on the mark on my arm and it slipped. "Then I dropped the knife and I passed out and the knife was right beside my head sizzling."
