Eddie Murphy death hoax
Eddie Murphy has joined the death hoax club. Online rumors swirled on Wednesday that the actor tragically died in a snowboarding accident in Switzerland.

Jeff Goldblum and Tom Hanks both met their maker after allegedly falling from cliffs in New Zealand. In April, Ryan Gosling reportedly died while filming in Austria and falling from a cliff.

Despite Jim Carrey quitting the planned project earlier this month, Jeff Daniels is hopeful a "Dumb & Dumber" sequel will eventually hit the big screen.

Carrey eventually walked away from the movie after growing "increasingly frustrated" by the project's lack of progress, but Daniels is optimistic the sequel will one day be made.

He tells CNN's Piers Morgan, "I know ...

Jim Carrey has fired back at ex-girlfriend Jenny McCarthy over remarks the model/actress made during a recent radio interview with shock jock Howard Stern, in which she accused the funnyman of avoiding her autistic son.

She admitted the break-up took its toll on her 10-year-old son, Evan, because Carrey was a father figure to him.

I was impressed last week by the J.J. Abrams picture “Super 8,” which pays skillful homage to the craft of film’s executive producer on the project, Steven Spielberg. Abrams takes his own trademark intrigue and mashes it up with themes present in classic Spielberg stories like “E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial” and “Jaws,” to create a movie that is both visually impressive and possesses heart. For more of my thoughts, check out my review if you haven’t already.
