'Lost's' Michael Emerson can take a punch

michael-emerson-lost-0309-320.jpgA stunt gone bad has left "Lost" star Michael Emerson sporting a black eye.

Emerson was involved in a fight scene on the ABC show recently, and his sparring partner apparently got a little too close for comfort. The other actor "actually connected with Michael's face and gave him a huge black eye," a source on set tells E! Online.

Emerson is otherwise fine, and filming hasn't been affected.

Given how much Emerson's character, Ben Linus, has been physically abused over the course of the series, a real black eye would perhaps blend right in with his other cuts and scrapes. But that's apparently not in the cards. The source tells E!, "Michael joked that the makeup department now has to hide his black eye every day instead of creating one."
