Bradley Cooper to Play Lance Armstrong in JJ Abrams ‘Cycle of Lies’

By on January 28, 2013

J.J. Abrams confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that he is in talks with Bradley Cooper to play disgraced cycling champion Lance Armstrong in the biopic he is producing.

Abrams confirms he is working on a Lance Armstrong script.

When asked if he was working on it with Cooper, he responded, “He sent me an email and we have been talking.”

Abrams’ Bad Robot shingle and Paramount recently scored the film rights to Juliet Macur’s proposed book “Cycle of Lies: The Fall of Lance Armstrong,” which would detail the doping scandal that led the cyclist to being stripped of his seven Tour de France titles, among other sanctions. Cooper, who is up for Best Actor at next month’s Oscars, previously expressed interest in the role in a recent interview with the BBC.
