The stars have taken to Twitter to assure folks that they're safe after a report surfaced claiming that gunfire broke out at a Los Angeles location where the Showtime series was shooting.
According to TMZ, the show was filming at a housing project in South Central Los Angeles Friday when shots were fired, the result of an alleged gang-related incident.
Supposedly, no one was injured – least of all its stars, who managed to find some humor in the alarming report.
"Holy s––t, I'm dead (TMZ)," Cheadle, 48, Tweeted.
Bell, 33, quickly chimed in. "I’m sitting right next to him, he’s definitely not dead. '@IamDonCheadle: Holy s––t, I’m dead (TMZ),' " she responded.
And if there was still any lingering skepticism about the two stars's well-being, the actress made sure to squelch them with hard, irrefutable proof: an ever-reliable Twitpic.
"I am like 99% sure he’s not dead…wait a min… #zombiedon," she Tweeted, attaching a photo that showed Cheadle putting on his best zombie mug.
Memo to Cheadle: Perhaps it's time to see if that rumored World War Z sequel is looking for some extras...
