"Bit not by a ROUS but a rattlesnake,” the actor said Monday on social media, referencing a "Rodent of Unusual Size" from the 1987 film, which co-starred Robin Wright. He posted an image of his hand with a swollen and black and blue finger.
The British-born actor was reportedly working in his yard when he was bit.
