Waaay back in January, we heard that James Franco was in talks to reunite with Howl filmmakers Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman for their upcoming Linda Lovelace biopic, which is now called Lovelace.
At the time, he was in negotiations to star as Linda's husband/pornographer/producer Chuck Traynor, but NOW we're hearing that he's in talks to cameo as Hugh Hefner in the film.
As we heard previously, Peter Sarsgaard is set to take over the role of Chuck Traynor, and the Linda Lovelace role will be played by
Lindsay Lohan Amanda Seyfried.
We can definitely get behind these casting choices! Sure, it would have been cool to see James in a more substantial role, but we have a feeling he'll bring something special to the table as Hef!
What do U think? Will James Franco be a good Hugh Hefner???
