James Franco is one busy man. He's hosting (and nominated for) the Oscars, teaching at Yale, premiering a new multimedia "Three's Company" piece at Sundance, headed to Broadway in the fall and planning to direct two and star in at least three upcoming films.

Well, make that potentially four. According to Deadline, Franco is in talks to star in the Linda Lovelace biopic "Lovelace" as the porn star's husband/pornographer, Chuck Traynor.

Before you get confused, no, this is not the same biopic Lindsay Lohan and then Malin Akerman were attached to. That one is called "Inferno" and is being directed by Matthew Wilder. This Lovelace biography has Kate Hudson in talks for the role of the titular star and will be directed by Franco's "Howl" helmers, Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman.
