James Franco may play a cameo role as Playboy founder Hugh Hefner in biopic 'Lovelace'.
The '127 Hours' actor may portray the Playboy magazine founder in the movie starring Amanda Seyfried as Linda Lovelace - best known for her starring role in porn movie 'Deep Throat' - after passing on the opportunity to play her husband Chuck Traynor.
The role would be a cameo and only require one day of shooting, but talks have not yet been completed to find a date suitable for him, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Production on the project is already underway, with shooting in Los Angeles beginning last week.
James - who earlier this year put in a turn as presenter when he hosted the Academy Awards with Anne Hathaway - has a number of movies coming up, including 'Wizard Of Oz' prequel 'Oz: The Great and Powerful' and 'Spring Breakers'.
