Is Will Ferrell dead?? (Update: The story was a Hoax )
Newswire ^ | 3-13-06 | self

Posted on 03/14/2006 1:45:18 PM PST by Yaelle

I just got an email from someone saying that Will Ferrell died in a paragliding accident. It sounds like something Will would have made up. The above link is not working for me but it was the only Google News link that says he is dead.

Bump in hopes that someone will know whether it's true or not. What a freakish shame if true.

Is there really an SNL curse?

No, if Will dies, it will be in a bizarre accident involving a blender and a Yak.

Considering the amount of cast members who went toes-up at an early age you could say that there is, I suppose.

Nope, Nicole Kidman will kill him for talking her into Bewitched (actually, I loved that move, but only 3 of us in the country did..)

I have no idea who that is. For that matter I really don't know who Will Farrel is either.

Someone should teach Will the difference between funny and stupid.The majority of his movies are too stupid to be funny.

OK, sorry for posting it. Anyway, all I did was ASK. I figured you guys would know if it was true or not.

I bet he started it himself to see how far it would go.

I like Nicole Kidman. She was good in The Others although I think it was spooky enough for me to enjoy most anybody in it.

I especially enjoy her in the one where she and her husband are on a boat and they take this crazy dude on board and apparently he has killed everyone on this abandoned yacht. It catches my imagination.

Can you believe that until recently I didn't even realize there really WAS a cowbell in the actual song (what is it called, "Fear the Reaper"?)? I heard it on the radio and started cracking up. I thought the premise of the joke was to mock the silly record producer's egomania. It's even funnier when you know they really did insert a frickin' cowbell in that airy-fairy song.

He's another SNL alum. You're better off not knowing, probably.

Isn't that "Dead Calm"? Good movie. I liked her in the South Park episode where she tells Tom Cruise to get out of the closet, he's not fooling anyone anyway. ;)
