Bradley Cooper Wants to Play Lance Armstrong
I’ll never forget taking Lance Armstrong’s biography, “It’s Not About The Bike,” to the beach with me. It was a very good read but as I was reading it, a friend told me that Lance divorced his wife, the same wife that was there through his cancer battle and all the drama in his life. I was so disgusted, I never finished the book. There it sits on my book shelf.
To say the least, Lance Armstrong has led an “interesting” life. And thanks to the recent ‘Oprah’ interview, where his admitted to lying about his repeated doping during his win in the 2000 Olympics and at least seven Tour De France titles.
The big Hollywood news today is Bradley Cooper having an interest in playing the disgraced athlete in an upcoming movie, that Director J.J. Abrams has the rights to. Bradley is quoted as saying he finds the cyclist “fascinating.”
The movie would be based on Juliet Macur’s forthcoming book, “Cycle of Lies: The Fall of Lance Armstrong.”
This is one movie I can’t wait to see and with J.J. Abrams behind it, it should be a blockbuster.
