The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is a social-media phenomenon that has raised awareness of the neurodegenerative disease to new heights as well as tens of millions of dollars to help fight it. By now, you’ve probably witnessed scores of your own friends dousing themselves with ice-cold water and seen videos of dozens of celebrities doing the same, all while challenging their other famous friends. We’ve gathered up all the hunky celebrity men we could find taking on the challenge and posted the videos for your enjoyment below. We’re still waiting for Channing Tatum to answer Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson‘s call and Chris Hemsworth [UPDATE: He did it and we have it!] to respond to Robert Downey Jr., and we are wondering when someone will finally get around to challenging Hugh Jackman [UPDATE: Done! See below!], Alex O’Loughlin [UPDATE: Done! Watch it below!], Taylor Kinney, Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Alexander Skarsgard. And you can’t convince us that David Beckham isn’t working on his own video this very second! [UPDATE: Becks did it! Evidence below!]
You can learn more about this awful disease at the ALS Association website before donating whatever amount you can online at the same link.
In the meantime, enjoy videos from hot athletes and actors and more, including ‘Dancing With the Stars’ hottie Derek Hough, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez and ‘Arrow’ hunk Stephen Amell (pictured above, left to right).
Wow, if we knew that James Franco took requests, we would have asked for this a looong time ago: The actor posted a nearly naked photo of himself on Instagram today, saying that it was in response to requests. “#Almostnude – YOu ASKED FOR IT, YOU GOT it,” he wrote alongside the selfie taken in a bathroom somewhere. “Tryna work that body, tryin’, trying’.”
In the pic, he’s flashing devil horns and a whole lotta skin, rocking out with his … uh, lower torso covered in a towel. But barely. His happy trail, however, is happily on full display. This sexy shot comes just a day after James posted a pair of batsh*t crazy ’50 Shades of Batman and Robin’ photos. (See the kinda NSFW pics here.) Franco’s on fiiiya, y’all!
Great job working the request lines, Internet. Just next time try to be more specific. Let’s get the word “almost” — and that damned towel — removed!
