Tom Cruise and John Travolta may soon get a new BFF.

Sources tell Star that James Franco is debating joining Scientology. “James is an avid sci-fi fan, and the religion incorporates a lot of theories from the sci-fi books of its founder, L. Rob Hubbard,” the source explains. “James finds their beliefs rather interesting.”

In fact, he’s doing research. “He’s reading a few books on Scientology and seriously wants to join!” the insider divulges.

But james has denied it — and his best buddy, Seth Rogen, calls the idea “crazy.” “Seth said it would be like when Darth Vader tries to convince Luke Skywalker to join the Dark Side in The Empire Strikes Back!” the insider tattles. “He said it’s absolutely unthinkable.”
