Look out James Franco! Disgraced former democratic vice presidential nominee, presidential candidate and ex-Senator John Edwards looks like a shoo-in to play Jack Tripper in the Three's Company stage/screen adaptation that Franco spread rumors about at Sundance.

Edwards' future, however, is up in the air, pending a trial before a grand jury in which he faces up to five years in prison after his arrest earlier this month on six felony counts related to campaign finance fraud.

The mug shot was released by the U.S. Marshals office today in response to a FOIA request for its release, reports the L.A. Times.
