Movie veteran James Caan has been hospitalised after collapsing on the set of his new TV drama Las Vegas.

THE GODFATHER star reportedly ignored a hernia from roping cattle on his ranch and then doubled over when the pain became too much for him to bear two days later.

An on-set source says, "The make-up girl noticed that under the make-up, his face was as white as a sheet and sweat was making streak marks down his face.

"He was trying to do a scene, but JIMMY just grabbed his stomach, doubled over and knelt down on the ground."

The 63-year-old actor was taken to Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Hospital, where doctors performed an emergency hernia operation on him.
