Dave Franco isn’t above attending a naked foam party.
toofab’s Brian Particelli talked to the star of “Neighbors” hot off the film’s successful SXSW premiere in Austin, Texas — where he got candid about his days in college, hazing on the set of the film and revealed which celeb he’d hate to have move in next door.
The 28-year-old actor plays Zac Efron’s fraternity brother in the movie, due out in May, and is no stranger to frat parties in real life.
“I had a lot of friends who were in fraternities,” the USC alum says. “I would go to these parties where the entire house, they would fill it with foam and people would be naked.”
“It wasn’t consistently that debaucherous,” Franco adds. “I was the kid who would get invited to all the frat parties by my friends. Eventually, going to these parties for four years, they were like ‘Alright, he’s O.K.’”
And while he missed out on all the top secret hazing rituals while he was matriculating, he got to make up for it on the set of the film.
Check out the video above to find out how the cast hazed one of the stars. It involves another guy’s butt, a pile of mud and condoms. Oh, college.

Lionsgate CEO has confirmed that “Now You See Me” sequel is set to start production in September. No words yet on which original cast members will be returning.
DEADLINE.COM – Shooting on the follow-up to last year’s sleeper hit Now You See Me will take place in the U.S., Europe, and Asia “to capitalize on the property’s international appeal, with most of the original cast returning, and some exciting new additions,” Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer told analysts this morning in a call to discuss the company’s fiscal Q3 earnings.
He added later that execs “absolutely see it as a franchise. We’re going to add some cast to it. We see it as an ongoing situation.” Execs pushed the theme of Lionsgate as an incubator for franchises; Feltheimer says the company has “an ability to assemble and mine the richest and most diverse portfolios of [intellectual property] in the industry.” He considers upcoming films Gods Of Egypt, Chaos Walking, and Mordecai (“a character that Johnny Depp loves,” he says) as “potential franchises — later adding The Last Witch Hunter with Vin Diesel to the list plus “another one we hope to announce shortly.”

Franco developed a cult following writing, producing and starring in original shorts for Funny or Die. A role in the action-comedy “21 Jump Street” was a big break, and now he’s sharing the screen with Hollywood’s A-list comedians. Next summer he’ll appear with Seth Rogen and Zac Efron in “Neighbors,” and he’s currently filming “Business Trip” with Vince Vaughn.
