There's rumor going on that James Earl Jones died going around, but it's not true.
Apparently on a website there an article on a parody website with a title claiming he died. However when the article was clicked on it took you to a page on Feednewz.com\Prank.link that said "You got Owned!"
However not everyone clicked on it and assumed he died.
The website's purpose is to make fake news stories and
James Earl Jones recently even made a Twitter, although he is yet to have tweeted anything. His bio says: "The official Twitter account for James Earl Jones, now starring in THE GIN GAME on Broadway.@gingamebroadway"
And as many articles point out, he's set to reprise his role as Mufasa in The Lion Guard: Return of The Roar, the character he played in Disney's The Lion King, and The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride.
