The actor, who has also appeared on Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld, Mad About You and Boston Legal, slipped and hit his head on the sidewalk after recording a podcast with Adam Corolla in April. A spokesman for Miller told People that after the accident, the actor slipped into a coma and had to be placed on life support for one month.

"He was hovering between life and death," his spokesman, Michael Hansen, told the magazine. "It's a miracle he woke up. ... He's lucky to be alive."
