<i>Veronica Mars</i> Investigates James Franco

Because he's not busy enough, and because he's also not done playing himself, James Franco is booking an appearance in the Kickstarter-funded Veronica Mars movie.

Franco will have a role in Veronica Mars as none other than himself, James Franco, according to Zap2It. The site says Franco is "one of several celebrities in the movie who have been victims of a hidden camera scam" that involves the culprit trying to sell the videos for profit. Franco and the movie's representatives have not yet confirmed the casting.

Veronica Mars wouldn't be Franco's first time appearing in a movie as himself. Vulture points out the actor's IMDb entry includes 78 credits as "Self." Looks like Rob Thomas' project could very well bump the This is the End star to an awkward 79.
