Since test screenings of the Andy Kaufman biopic ”Man on the Moon” began, Universal has been hit by Internet rumors alleging the Jim Carrey flick features everything from a trick beginning to star cameos to multiple endings. The sources? ”Many close associates of Andy’s were involved in the film,” says studio spokesperson Terry Curtin. ”We suspect that they’re peppering the media with, um, provocative misinformation.” Ain’t it Cool News ‘ Harry Knowles says the charges are overblown: ”Sure, I get lots of (rumors) — but I’ve only had one I KNOW is from a friend of Kaufman’s. The folks at Universal should just relax.”
