The stars of House of Lies certainly kept their wits about them in the face of possible danger today!
"Holy sh*t, I'm dead (TMZ)," Don Cheadle tweeted in response to the site's story about alleged gunfire breaking out in the L.A. housing project where the Showtime series was filming today, the story having prominently featured a photo of Cheadle with the headline "House of Life Caught in Gang Gunfire."
And then the Walking Dead speculation began.
After a fan innocently suggested that maybe Bell and Cheadle were actually both dead, the actress tweeted, "Holy. Schnikies. '@BuffyLord: @IMKristenBell @IamDonCheadle maybe you both are?'"
"I am like 99% sure he's not dead…wait a min… #zombiedon @IamDonCheadle," Bell added, along with a pic of herself looking almost positive that her costar was alive and Cheadle looking a little bit wily-eyed.
The plot thickens!
Meanwhile, LAPD media relations told E! News that officers responded to a call about a shooting in the area, but upon arrival could not find evidence that a crime had been committed.
TMZ had reported that rival gang members were among the crowd that gathered to watch House of Lies film in the Nickerson Gardens housing project and that someone opened fire. By the time cops arrived, the alleged perpetrators were no longer at the scene and no injuries were reported.
UPDATE: Showtime later said in a statement: "We are aware of reports that shots were fired at Nickerson Gardens in Los Angeles where Showtime's House of Lies filmed earlier today. Series stars Don Cheadle, Kristen Bell, guest star T.I. and the shooting crew were not there at the time of the shooting. They had already moved to another location and were not in danger at any time."
