Though we essentially called the woman out as an actress on Thursday, The Smoking Gun confirmed that she is indeed a New York actress named Alexandra Tatarksy and was hired to play the role of the Taxi star's daughter.

According to a source familiar with the stunt, Tatarsky met Michael Kaufman earlier this year while working at a Manhattan gallery exhibiting a collection of Kaufman's "ephemera and artifacts." The actress was allegedly then recruited by Michael Kaufman to play the role of Andy's daughter.

During his appearance on CNN, Michael flatly denied the report.

"I'm still trying to process it all" he said, "I'm questioning things as much as everyone else. Now that it's Thursday and not Monday anymore, I believe that I am part of a hoax, I don't believe that she's acting on her own though. I did not know how to reach her, but now [with the] Smoking Gun.I'm sure there's some way of reaching her now."

What do you think? Did Michael Kaufman know about the hoax, or is he himself being hoaxed?
