Rob Huebel on His ‘Comedy Mafia’ and Making Justin Long Strip Naked at a Malibu Beach — Turn It On Podcast
For his new YouTube Red series, Rob Huebel couldn’t find a nude beach to shoot a scene. So he forced a nude Justin Long on unsuspecting families at a beach in Malibu.

“We’re naked, and families are out there, children are crying, and other people are out there filming us with their phones,” Huebel told IndieWire’s Turn It On podcast. “The producers had to go up to people and say, ‘hey man, please don’t post that naked photo of Justin Long on the Internet or sell it to TMZ!”

Long is one of the guests on Huebel’s new irreverent YouTube Red series “Do You Want to See A Dead Body?” The comedy features Huebel and celebrity friends as they search for a dead body that Huebel has found.

“It’s such an absurd premise,” Huebel admitted. “Sometimes we find the body, sometimes we don’t find the body,

Nonprofits And Celebrities Join Forces To Combat HIV And Malaria In Malawi

The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation (Etaf) and the United Nations Foundation's Nothing But Nets campaign announced today a partnership to combat HIV and malaria in southern rural Malawi.

Actor Scott Wolf, his wife Kelley, and actress Alexandra Daddario traveled there with the two organizations to see first-hand how they are tackling both global health issues.

Combined, malaria and HIV cause more than two million deaths each year. The partnership between Etaf and Nothing But Nets is a strategic approach to offering holistic care in order to tackle two deadly diseases that cripple communities. By combining resources, the organizations aim to continue a sustainable impact in the villages.

The remote rural area of Malawi visited by the delegation is home to approximately 675,000 people who face extreme poverty and an inadequate health infrastructure, with under-resourced health care facilities struggling to meet high demands for care. Etaf has funded quality, village-based health services

Zac Efron Keeps a Cut-Out of Himself by His Pool, Reveals the Movie That Makes Him Cry in '73 Questions'

Zac Efron Keeps a Cut-Out of Himself by His Pool, Reveals the Movie That Makes Him Cry in '73 Questions'
If you thought you knew everything about Zac Efron, think again.

The 29-year-old actor participates in Vogue's "73 Questions" segment, and is as charming as ever while answering candid questions, doing celebrity impressions and standing by a cardboard cut-out of himself at the pool.

Efron makes an entrance by pulling into the driveway of his Los Angeles home in a 1964 1/2 Mustang, a.k.a. the first Mustang model ever made by Ford, that he calls "Gramps," because it was given to him by his grandfather.

One thing fans will quickly learn about the Baywatch star is that he has a name and/or title for everything. His DJ name would be AfroZac, his life as a musical would be Zacalicious, and if he could just change his name, he would like to be called Khaleesi -- after the fierce character on Game of Thrones.
