At the 11;00 AM (PDT) news it was announced that actor Colin Firth (King George VI in The King's Speech) has died at age 53.

In case everyone is not aware of this by now, Firth's reported death was a hoax.

I think there was some big news to interested fans that his character dies in his latest upcoming movie and someone got the usual lowbrow idea to spread the rumor that it was the actor who died - maybe even to capitalize on the latest huge deaths in entertainment (Robin Williams, Lauren Bacall).

I will leave this open for another day or two, in case Butch wants to respond.

But if no one objects, I will likely either delete the thread, or lock it up.



Its good thats he is still here though............there's been plenty of death recently in Hollywood.

The "hoax" was actually a publicity stunt created a one of the studio hacks. He-Or-She-It (run the words together VERY fast) person was fired.
