More celeb death rumors: Now it's Jeff Goldblum and Harrison Ford!

Goldblum_dies Only hours after news broke about Michael Jackson's death, the Internet is buzzing with rumors that both Jeff Goldblum and Harrison Ford died Thursday.

Only one website is reporting Goldblum's death -- and their site isn't currently up and running. Still, the rumor is that he fell to his death on the set of a movie in New Zealand. Here's another mention. However, his page on Wikipedia reports that the news is a hoax.

Screencrave.com also insists its a hoax: "Police National Head Quarters in New Zealand  told 3 News they know nothing about the claims and have not had any reports of such an incident in Northland. They say similar rumors were circulating six to eight weeks ago and believe it’s false information."

Another website reports that Twitter posts indicate Harrison Ford died today, but again nobody else is reporting it or passing it along.

Both Ford and Goldblum are currently filming the movie Morning Glory, which only two days ago was being shot in New York City, according to one more reputable website. So chances that either actor are dead in New Zealand or anywhere else seem nearly impossible.

There was a similar rumor about Tom Hanks dying in 2006.

The Twitter website is crawling pretty slow with all the Jackson news flying around, so it's nearly impossible to check the sources. But stay tuned as we try to figure it all out.
