James Franco will soon add novelist to a list of credits that already includes movie star, Oscar host and NYU student who gets his teachers fired for giving out bad grades. According to the New York Observer, the 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' actor just sold his first novel to Amazon's fiction editor, Ed Park. The book is called 'Actors Anonymous,' and it will apparently be a fictionalized version of his experiences as an actor. (Fingers crossed for a behind-the-scenes look at 'General Hospital'!)

This will be Franco's second book, the first being a collection of short stories called 'Palo Alto.'
