James Franco takes on a lot of eclectic roles on top of doing so many other things -- like earning advanced degrees from NYU.  And now he's adding porn to that growing list.

Franco will star in the new indie drama Cherry, reports Variety. He will star as a cocaine-addicted lawyer who gets involved with an 18-year-old newcomer to San Francisco and the adult entertainment industry.

Heather Graham will also star in the flick, playing an ex-porn star-turned-director.  Lili Taylor will star as the girl's mom and Dev Patel as her best friend. 

No word on who will play the 18-year-old caught up in the porn industry.  Who do you think would do the role justice?

Franco adds this to his very busy schedule, including a starring role in Rise of the Planet of the Apes and his upcoming role in Oz: the Great and PowerfulHe's also set to direct The Night Stalker, a Sal Mineo biopic, and a big screen adaptation of Wiliam Faulkner's As I Lay Dying.
