Bradley Cooper Talking To JJ Abrams About Playing Lance Armstrong In Biopic

Bradley Cooper told both the BBC and JJ Abrams that he’d like the play Lance Armstrong in Paramount and Bad Robot’s upcoming film about the disgraced, drug-cheat cyclist. Obviously it was somewhat more important he told the latter.

And it actually seems like it might work out. Abrams told ET Online that Cooper:

sent me an email and we’ve been talking.

Not a bad choice at all. There’s some physical resemblance, sure, but Cooper has also proven himself to be a most capable actor.

I wonder if Abrams has also been getting e-mails about his other upcoming projects? Something tells me he probably has cough Simon Pegg cough Jedi Knight cough cough splutter.
