While everyone in Hollywood is pulling for Patrick Swayze to recover, OK! has exclusively learned that rumors he is currently at work while fighting cancer are not true.

Reports have Swayze playing the role of a gay cheerleading instructor in the romantic comedy Fired Up!, but a rep for producers of the film (currently filming in Los Angeles) say that although Swayze was once attached to the film, he withdrew from the film “three weeks to a month ago.” The role is currently being played by John Michael Higgins (Wag the Dog).
