Despite reports to the contrary, Silver Linings Playbook star Bradley Cooper is not going to star in a Lance Armstrong biopic.
The Guardian reported that the Golden Globe nominated actor was slated to star as Armstrong in a biopic produced by J.J. Abrams.Cooper talked about the potential of starring as Armstrong, who was recently stripped of his Tour de France titles, telling the BBC, “I think he's fascinating…What a fascinating character."
Fascinating or not, the Hangover actor will not be channeling the shamed bicyclists life any time soon.
When questioned about the potential role by Access Hollywood, Cooper flat out stated “no” with a laugh adding, “Oh my God, that's so nuts!"
Cooper admits, “I was in Manchester, doing the BBC morning show... I had no idea what [the interviewer] was talking about. I didn't even know that J.J. has the rights, I had no idea."
He concludes, "I don't know anything about it."
