As if you didn't have enough James Franco news this week, let's drop his name a few more times, shall we? The ubiquitous actor-director-novelist-host and mentor to super-intelligent apes is in negotiations to star in 'The Game,' MGM's adaptation of the best-selling book about picking up women. Franco would star as Mystery, the man who taught author Neil Strauss how to become a successful pick-up artist. The real-life Mystery went on to star in a VH1 reality series called 'The Pick-Up Artist,' which, given Franco's love of all things meta (he's playing himself in 'The Apocalypse' and taught a class on himself), we wouldn't rule out as his next career move.
