JAMES Franco is going to be a Playboy!

According to Variety, the actor is in talks to play Hugh Hefner in the upcoming movie Lovelace, the Linda Lovelace biopic, which stars Amanda Seyfried as the Deep Throat actress.

Franco would be on set for a single day, starring in a pivotal scene where Lovelace visits Playboy mansion along with her husband, Chuck Traynor, who will be played by Peter Sarsgaard. The movie also costars Hank Azaria and Chris Noth.

Franco recently blasted the Twilight franchise.

“The characters are so financially secure that they are almost impossible to identify with,” he said.

“The protagonists finally marry, having waited until the wise old age of 18, and since the book and the film dutifully show them being wed, they are then allowed to f*** each others’ brains out.

“For a film that claims to be sexually responsible, the Twilight movies are awfully dependent on teenage sex to attract viewers. The actors prance about like pieces of meat, their disturbingly developed bodies on full display; Taylor Lautner’s rippling teenage chest is just a little better than the child beauty-pageant stars at the end of Little Miss Sunshine.”
