James Franco in Talks to Play Hugh Hefner in Porn Drama

JamesFranco300.jpgHere's one way to deflect attention from NYU GradeGate: Variety reports that James Franco is in talks to play Playboy impresario Hugh Hefner in Lovelace, the porn biopic starring Amanda Seyfried as the titular XXX actress Linda Lovelace, of Deep Throat fame. Unfortunately -- or fortunately? -- Franco's role would be limited to a one-day cameo, which sounds like something along the lines of his blink-and-you'll-miss-it Green Hornet appearance. The film is currently shooting in Los Angeles. [Variety]

    I don't think Franco and Seyfried resemble their (potential) characters, but Franco's perpetual-stoner look certainly feels right for Hefner.
