It may be hard to be Toronto mayor Rob Ford right now, but it turns out it's also hard playing him on TV.

After this past weekend's mockery of Ford on "Saturday Night Live," actor Bobby Moynihan admitted that he hurt himself while playing the troubled mayor, according to The New York Post.

Apparently, Moynihan fell off the stage and sprained his ankle while depicting Ford.

The 36-year-old "SNL" actor was in enough pain that he had to miss the premiere of his film "Delivery Man," which stars Vince Vaughn.

In the now-famous skit, Moynihan's Ford stumbles into a podium during an uncomfortable press conference -- something Torontonians and people around the world have experienced many times in the past month.
