founder Hugh Hefner
, with Brett Ratner attached to direct and actors like Robert Downey, Jr. and Hugh Jackman mentioned as possible picks to play the magazine mogul. But the closest Hef has come to creating a starring role on the big screen is a James Franco cameo in Lovelace
, which has Amanda Seyfried as porn star turned anti-porn icon Linda Lovelace.
