'Deuce Bigalow' star Rob Schneider has collapsed on the set of his new movie.
The actor was taken to a northern California hospital after suffering from food poisoning and heat exhaustion.
In a statement, his publicist, Shara Koplowitz, revealed: "The combination of bad food and the heat just hit him."
Koplowitz was unsure what the star ate but he was back on set after being released from hospital on Wednesday (28.06.06).
Schneider was taken ill while directing and starring in new comedy, 'Big Stan', at a women's prison near San Francisco.
The film revolves around Stan, a conman who is locked up on fraud charges but defends himself against other inmates by learning kung-fu.
Schneider is best known for his roles in Hollywood comedies 'Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigalow' and 'The Benchwarmers'.
