Seinfeld actor Wayne Knight is not dead - despite what the internet says.
Knight, who played Newman in the television series, was reported to have been killed in a car crash near the Pennslyvania-New York border, according to the website TMZ.today, a phony site not affiliated with gossip outlet TMZ.
But reports of his demise are not true, and the actor took to Twitter to confirm he was alive and well.
