Bradley Cooper may just be getting exactly what he’s wished for. Last week the “Silver Linings Playbook” actor told BBC News that he would be interested in playing Lance Armstrong in the upcoming biopic, and now, director JJ Abrams said that he has been speaking to Cooper about the part.
“[Cooper] sent me an email and we’ve been talking,” Abrams told ET.
“I would be interested in [playing Armstrong],” Cooper told BBC News. “I think he’s fascinating. What a fascinating character.”
Abrams is directing the film adaptation of Juliet Macur’s upcoming “Cycle of Lies: The Fall of Lance Armstrong.”
