James Franco Playing Hugh Hefner in Linda Lovelace Biopic?

James Franco is in negotiations to play Hugh Hefner in the upcoming biopic about porn star Linda Lovelace.

The 33-year-old actor would appear in a cameo as the Playboy founder in Lovelace, which follows Amanda Seyfried taking on the role of the adult film actress.

“The actor and his reps have been dancing with producers around the timing of a one-day shoot, but so far a consummation remains elusive,” THR reports.

Peter Sarsgaard, Juno Temple, Wes Bentley, and Sharon Stone are also attached to the project, which began shooting in L.A. earlier this week.
