James Franco to Publish His First Novel

Actor, producer, graduate student, Oscars host. He's had plenty of titles. And now James Franco is set to add one more: novelist.

Franco, 33, has sold his first novel, Actors Anonymous, loosely based on his life, to Amazon Publishing, the New York Observer reports.

The book was acquired by Amazon fiction editor Ed Park, a founding editor of The Believer, whose move to Amazon in September caused a buzz in literary circles.

While this is Franco's first novel, it's not his first work of fiction. He released a book of short stories, Palo Alto, back in June, published by Scribner.
