Jim Tavaré — best known for playing Tom the Innkeeper in “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” — is in ICU after suffering a broken neck and punctured lung in a nasty car accident.

The 54-year-old actor and comedian also broke 15 ribs and has fractures in his right leg and breastbone … according to his wife, Laura … who posted hospital pics. It’s unclear where the head-on crash took place.

Laura wrote on Tuesday … “Jim has asked me to let you all know that he was involved in a serious car accident yesterday, a head-on collision … He’s had two blood transfusions so far and is about to go in for his first surgery.”

Jim was able to give a thumbs up. Laura hasn’t posted an update on his condition.
