Zach Braff is alive and well
Zach Braff has not died. The Scrubs actor was, however, victim of an internet hoax on October 12, 2009, in which a faked CNN-like web site claimed that he committed suicide in his home. The rumor spread quickly through Wikipedia, Twitter, Facebook and other sites.
Braff posted an amusing video on YouTube in response to the
hoax. It can be viewed here:
From Braff's Facebook page:
