LOS ANGELES, June 26 (UPI) -- Jeff Goldblum's publicist said the U.S. actor has not died during a fall on movie shoot in New Zealand, contrary to Internet reports claiming he has.

Goldblum, 56, is best known for his roles in the movies "The Fly," "Jurassic Park" and "Independence Day." He can now be seen on TV's "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" and has appeared twice in recent days on Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report."

The erroneous rumors regarding his demise circulated Thursday, the same day celebrities Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson died.

"Reports that Jeff Goldblum has passed away are completely untrue. He is fine and in Los Angeles," the actor's publicist told TV's "Access Hollywood."
