First, David Carradine dies. I really enjoyed him in Kung Fu and was shocked. It was a senseless death (sigh) and reminded me too much of when Jon Erik Hexum died (playing with a gun on the set). When it was announced Ed McMahon had passed, I wasn't so shocked because I knew he'd been rather ill, and the same with Farrah Fawcett, but now Michael Jackson? Wow, that came out of the blue! I suspect the stress of the show he was putting on, debt, lawsuits, etc. etc. just killed him. When heard that EMTs had worked on him for 41 minutes (or thereabouts), I said, he's dead. Most CPR does NOT work, contrary to the miraculous resurrections on TV dramas.
Then I go fold the wash, and come back to rumors that Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park, Law & Order) had fallen off a cliff in New Zealand while making a movie and was dead. I'm like, oh good grief, who makes up this crap? And oh yes, Harrison Ford's yacht sunk as well and hes' fish food. Geesh, now if they'd said his Piper Cub had gone down, that would have been more believable.
Meanwhile, actor Kevin Spacey laid rest to the Jeff Goldblum rumors on his twitter (which is real, verified, etc.)
Jeff Goldblum is alive and well. I just spoke to his manager. Stop these stupid rumors.
Wow, people have just gone nuts, and the idiots are starting rumors.
