James Franco in Neptune for Veronica Mars movie

James Franco has donated his time to the moderately-budgeted (well, you guys financed it!) “Veronica Mars” movie.

*** SPOILER ALERT ***

Not much of a stretch for him this one; the “This is the End” star is playing himself (again) in the Rob Thomas written/directed movie, in a scenario involving a scam artist planting cameras in celebrity homes and then selling the recorded footage.

Zap2it, who broke the news, say Franco is one of a few celebs who appear as themselves in the movie; last week Justin Long was spotted on the set of the film, suggesting he might be playing himself in the movie too.

*** SPOILER ALERT ENDS ****

We’ll likely hear much more on “Veronica Mars” when the cast and crew hit Comic-Con in a couple of weeks.
