Bradley Cooper eyes up Lance Armstrong role

Jan 23 2013, 4:47am CST | by

Bradley Cooper wants to play Lance Armstrong in a movie.

The 'Silver Linings Playbook' actor has expressed his desire to portray the ''fascinating'' disgraced cyclist - who was stripped of his titles between 1999 and 2005 after it emerged he had taken performance-enhancing drugs - in J.J. Abrams' upcoming biopic about his rise and fall from grace.

Bradley told BBC news: ''I would be interested in [playing Armstrong]. I think he's fascinating. What a fascinating character. I remember Matt Damon was going to do his autobiography at one point years ago.

''I remember thinking, that would be a great character, I'd love to play that character. I would love to do something, I think he's pretty fascinating.''

'Star Trek' helmer J.J. and his Paramount Pictures partner Bryan Burk recently snapped up the screen rights for 'Cycle of Lies: The Fall of Lance Armstrong', a new book by New York Times sportswriter Juliet Macur, who has covered the drugs cheat for over a decade.

Matt Damon and Matthew McConaughey are allegedly hot contenders to play the infamous cyclist in the Bad Robot project.

Sony Pictures were previously lining up Jake Gyllenhaal to play Armstrong, but dropped their film proposal when the seven-time Tour de France winner's reputation was damaged.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Concept Art Shows Off Stunning Xandarian Vistas

Sep 8 2014 9:00am CDT | Source: slash film

The Marvel Cinematic Universe isn’t exactly like our real universe (for one thing, it has superheroes), but it’s close enough that the settings generally look familiar. The Avengers’ New York City is our New York City, give or take a Stark Tower. But this summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy was the first Marvel movie to take place almost entirely off-Earth, and that meant Marvel had to create entirely new worlds from scratch. Naturally, the creative team ran with the opportunity, ...
