Will the movie feature his drug taking pre cancer or post cancer?
I'd like to see him kissing *** and making connections to get hold of amphetamines to use in junior triathlons and then getting Cortisone to the *** with Carmichael.

I remember vividly when I was 16 there were certain personal trainers and other dudes at my gym who you could buddy up with and they would sort you out with some dodgy ****.

Hollywood is now working on TWO Lance Armstrong movies.

Lance Armstrong’s story has everything. Victory. Redemption. A Triumph of the Human Spirit. All-American Ambition Shading into Moral Decay. The Enticing Possibility That Matthew McConaughey Could Play Himself.

that would be onanism on celluloid.

McConaughey.

Malibu runs sans tops.

bunga bunda parties in Malibu.

blow two ways @ Yellow Rose.

line up Stiller, Gyllenhaal, Williams to play themselves as bumchums.

quandary, which hecken Olsen twin was it? Could her twin play her? Bit close to incest methinks.

Andy **** to play Tyler Hamilton.

Who is gonna play Haven Parchinski?

As a film fanatic I'm always interested in watching a good story.

There is a documentary coming up.
http://blogs.indiewire.com/thompsononhollywood/scandal-pushes-alex-gibneys-lance-armstrong-documentary-biopics-to-the-front-burner

But I'd like to see a dramatization of the story. Here are some questions.

- What should be the title of the movie?
- What should be in the story?
- Which actors are going to play the main roles: Armstrong, Bruyneel, USPS riders, Verbruggen, McQuaid, wives, lovers, etc?
- Should Robin Williams or Sean Penn be one of those actors?
- Add your own question.

Personally, I'd like to see the story starts when LA was a teenager.
I need to think about who I'd like to play those roles.

As for titles I can suggest:

- Wonderboy
- Winning at All Costs
- Winning No Matter What
- Rise and Fall of a Hero
- The Story of a Disgraced Cyclist
- The Bully, The Cheat and The Doper
- Psycho: Run, Don't Walk
The speculation continues and the American psyche has hit full stride in seeking some entertainment out of a tawdry generation in American cycling, Why is it every major fraud case has to be turned into Hollywood fluff.

It is way too early to have a substantive and genuine movie about LA. There are too many lawsuits and issues that have to be played out before embarking on a movie.

But it is fun to identify actors who we all think resemble in some way the main characters. I think the most fun is the movie title. My vote is "Its a Long Alley Between Trash Cans"

To play LA, may I tangentialy suggest Keanu Reeves. Although KR smiles occasionally and LA never does, KR can do a good blank stare look.

As for a film title, perhaps a spin on the Vittorio De Sica film, The Bicycle Thieves. And call it (edit) "The Bicycle Thieving git"

Just a thought.

but KR cant act. is that intentional suggestion?

I could see that on some meta level.

because armstrong is so transparent in all his attempt(s) to uphold his ruse to the rubes.

That better for you. Or are you going to take another snip...
I just wondered because making the singular of thieves to theive is a fairly large grammatical mistake. I was wondering if there was a reason.
