On June 25, 2009--the same day actress Farrah Fawcett and musician Michael Jackson died-- actor Jeff Goldblum was reported dead on Australia's Channel Nine news. Internet rumors were flying that Jeff Goldblum fell to his death during an on-set accident in New Zealand (the same rumor had been spread about Tom Hanks in 2006 and Tom Cruise in 2008) and that Harrison Ford was lost at sea when his yacht capsized. Rick Astley, the 80s pop singer behind "Never Gonna Give You Up," was also reported to have died. Fortunately, none of the reports proved to be true.
