“Holy sh*t, I’m dead,” Don wrote on Twitter after reports surfaced that he was caught in a gun fight while filming the Showtime hit.

Co-star Kristen Bell also wrote on Twitter in response to Don’s tweet, writing, “I’m sitting right next to him, he’s definitely not dead.” Later adding, “I am like 99% sure he’s not dead …wait a min … #zombiedon.”

On Friday, TMZ reported that while shooting a scene at Nickerson Gardens housing project in South Central L.A, crowds began to linger around the filming location. Members of rival gangs were allegedly among the crowd and at one point the gangs became aggressive which escalated to gun fire.

According to the report, Don, Kristen and guest star T.I. had just finished a scene when shots were fired. Cops were called to the scene but upon arrival, the crowed including the alleged gang members had already dispersed.

“We are aware of reports that shots were fired at Nickerson Gardens in Los Angeles where Showtime’s House of Lies filmed earlier today,” Showtime later said in a statement. “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.”

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

Published

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
