Tom Cruise Dead, Dies Just Like Jeff Goldblum?

Tom Cruise is dead — or at least that seems to be what the internet rumor mill is cranking out today.  The famed actor, known for his roles in such movies as “Risky Business,” “Top Gun,” and the “Mission: Impossible” series and his avid belief in Scientology, seems to have become the latest in the dead celebrity hoax parade.  But Tom Cruise is very much not dead.

He’s a hologram.  That’s what he told MTV Friday in an interview.  MTV talked with Tom Cruise and on the phone.  The two were promoting the Black Eyed Peas’ singer’s song from the upcoming “Cruise” movie “Knight and Day.”

Cruise thought the rumor was amusing.  “I’m really alive,” he confirmed. “Did the internet get it wrong again?”

Again?  Yes, again.  Tom Cruise was the victim of a dead celebrity hoax/ rumor in 2009 as well.  And it seems to be the same rumor as the death hoax rumor that swept the internet in November.  That rumor had several forms, but the most persistent was the version where he fell from a cliff in New Zealand.

But haven’t we heard that dead celebrity rumor before?

Of course we have. Last June, on the same day that Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett died, a Twitter-generated hoax reported that actor Jeff Goldblum (“Jurassic Park”, “Law & Order: Criminal Intent”) was killed when he fell from Kauri cliff while filming a movie in New Zealand.  Oddly enough, Tom Cruise fell from the same cliff as Jeff Goldblum.  Even odder still, Jeff Goldblum appeared on Comedy Central Network’s “The Colbert Report” that same night and read his own obituary.

Actor Gary Coleman was also the victim of a dead celebrity hoax/ rumor that dominated internet traffic Friday.  Unlike not dead Tom Cruise, who is in good health in London, Coleman was admitted to a Utah hospital Wednesday and has since slipped into a life-threatening coma.

    2. I’ve been surfing online more than three hours nowadays, but I by no means found any fascinating article like yours. It is pretty price sufficient for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content material as you did, the net can be a lot more useful than ever before.
