    "Hi I am back From the dead!," Dempsey tweeted this morning to assure his followers that he is indeed very much alive.

    The rumor ran rampant after a fan site was hacked with false info that the actor had died in an automobile accident.

    Well, if nothing else, Dempsey now has something in common to chat about if he's ever hanging out with other "recently deceased" stars like Chris Brown, Paul McCartney, Eddie Murphy and Justin Bieber.
