As if he weren't busy enough designing for his two eponymous lines plus Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs is taking on a new role -- in a movie.

The news has been brewing for weeks with more developments coming everyday. The designer, who made time to attend last night's Glamour Women of the Year Awards, first mentioned offhand to Style.com, "I got cast in a role in a movie." Tell us more, Marc!!

So he did. Fashionista got to sleuthing and saw that Jacobs had the film title on his IMDB page (who even knew he had one?). Turns out the film, entitled "Disconnect," is legit, starring Jason Bateman and Alexander Skarsgard, which means Jacobs will be in good (read: attractive) company.

But what on Earth will he play -- a designer? A model?

Nope, reports Fashionista. Jacobs is set to play a "porn baron"... which means, we're guessing, that we'll be seeing a lot of Jacobs like this.
