Lance Armstrong writer

06.11.2009

Gary Ross (SEABISCUIT) will write the script for the Lance Armstrong biopic. The film will tell the story of the improbable comeback Armstrong made from severe, life-threatening illness to bang all-star hotties Sheryl Crow, Ashley Olsen and Kate Hudson. There will probably also be a little in there about how he won seven consecutive Tour de France titles too, but I'm sure the focus will remain on a dude with one ball achieving the ultimate American Dream of scoring Hollywood A-list tail.

Jake Gyllenhaal expressed real interest in playing Armstrong at a time, and even spent time with the guy to prepare for the role, but in the end he decided against coming onboard. The latest name to have been bandied around is Matt Damon, but again, things are still at a very early stage. Probably once we have a completed script, and if it is SEABISCUIT, Oscar caliber, sure, Matt and I may very well throw our names into the hat.
Extra Tidbit: Armstrong's heart is 30 percent larger than average.

I don't understand what's so special about riding a bike with one less ball. Seems like having a ball removed is a good move for anybody that rides a bike for really long distances.

And I also live in Austin, and most of the people here are as proud of Lance hanging around here as they are of George W. Bush. When you know about ten people that have met him and all have the same story about their experience ("i.e. "what an asshole"), it's tough to think they all just met him on a bad day.

Maybe that explains why Gyllenhaal lost interest after hanging out with him.

I live in Austin and hate this douche bag. All the other rich douche bags in Austin think it's cool to dress up in there gay ass spandex and take up too much space on our free ways and main roadways. On top off that the dudes the biggest jerk you could ever meet. Donít you dare look him in the eye as you pass him by. Why everyone rides his uni-sack I donít know.
