Actor James Franco is adding yet another line to his resume: magazine columnist.

According to the New York Post, the "127 Hours" star will set aside some of his other rolling obligations as a graduate student, actor, director and performance artist to pen a column each month for ... drumroll please .... Playboy.

The "Francofile," as the column's called, debuts in the famous magazine starting this month.

The actor - who, not-so-coincidentally, plays Playboy founder Hugh Hefner in the recently wrapped movie "Lovelace" - has already written his first piece for the pub. It's a Q&A with Marina Abramovic that appears in the July/August issue. The column is said to explore the issues of "space, energy and magic," and is one of six columns he'll write for the publication.

But don't worry, fans, writing won't consume him: Franco is also slated to star in the upcoming film "Spring Breakers" with Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez, among several others.
