Bradley Cooper in Talks to Star in J.J. Abrams' Lance Armstrong Film

The Silver Linings Playbook star Bradley Cooper is in talks to play Lance Armstrong in the J.J. Abrams produced film project based on the disgraced cyclist. After the movie was announced last week, Cooper expressed some interest in playing the cyclist. He ended up sending Abrams an e-mail, and Abrams confirmed to ET this last weekend that they've been talking.

The movie will be based on the proposed book by Juliet Macur, to be called Cycle Of Lies: The Fall Of Lance Armstrong. The film will tell the story of the cyclist's inspiring rise and epically disgraceful fall. 

When I first saw the news that they would be making this film, I immediately thought Cooper would be best actor to take it on. Now it looks like we might get to see him do it. What do you think about Copper possibly playing Armstrong?
