Perez out of play after surgery

Rosie Perez has been forced to pull out of a New York play after undergoing surgery.

The Oscar-nominated actress is recovering from a bone marrow procedure and neck surgery, and has dropped out of John Guare's A Free Man Of Colour, which premieres on November 18.

Rosie, who hurt her neck while filming an episode of Law & Order: SVU in 2009, said her doctor was afraid the workload would land her back in hospital.

But she said: "I'm on the mend."

Rosie's film credits include Pineapple Express and current hit The Other Guys, while she also has a recurring role in TV series Lipstick Jungle

Guare's other plays include Six Degrees Of Separation and The House Of Blue Leaves.
