Last Thursday, amid the hubbub of Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett‘s deaths, rumors were also flying about Jeff Goldblum falling to his death on a movie set in New Zealand. Twitterers everywhere were hash-tagging “RIP Jeff Goldblum” to the point where the story was actually reported as fact on the Australian news. What must it be like to hear the news of your own demise but actually be alive and kicking, we wondered?
Well, last night Goldblum appeared on the Colbert Report and stood by while listening to a pair of Australian newscasters report on his death and then hilariously eulogized himself on the air. “No one will miss Jeff Goldblum more than me. He was not only a friend and mentor, but he was also me. . .When Jeff Goldblum passed away, a little bit of all of us died. I will be missed.”
Rest in peace, Jeff Goldblum.
