Jake Gyllenhaal and Matthew McConaughey were both rumored to become BFF’s with Lance Armstrong to score the lead role in the cyclist’s biopic. The threesome were constantly photographed together in what appeared to be a bromance involving spandex and beach workouts. The project had momentum in 2006 and Jake was said to have scored the role of Lance. Suddenly Matthew was kicked out of their workout club. Reps and even Gyllenhaal himself danced around questions asked about his involvement with the film.
The biopic never got off the ground and steam behind the press train vanished. However, E! is reheating the rumor and throwing more names into the ring. Chris Pine and Robert Pattinson are said to be in the running after their recent rise to fame. Risky Business Blog also states that Matt Damon is interested in the role.
Who do you think is the best man for the job?
