Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper is not in talks to play Lance Armstrong

With Lance Armstrong all over the news for the past month, there have been rumors swirling about a biopic about the doping Tour de France cyclist.

The former sexiest man alive and Oscar nominee, Bradley Cooper, has been linked to this said biopic.

Cooper told BBC News that he would be interested in portraying Armstrong.

“I would be interested in that. I think he's fascinating. What a fascinating character," he said.

Now Cooper is singing a different tune and telling Access Hollywood that he has no desire to link himself to Armstrong.

“Oh my God, that’s so nuts! I had no idea what the interviewer was talking about,” Bradley revealed.

Paramount Pictures is the studio that is currently looking into the biopic and J.J Abrams is the man with the rights to produce the film, according to E! Online.

BBC also said that Abrams will base the film off of New York Times reporter Juliet Macur’s book Cycle of Lies: The Fall of Lance Armstrong.
