Bradley Cooper Says ‘Hold On’ to Lance Armstrong Movie
“‘Oh my god, that’s so nuts!’ he said, amused by the chatter.”[THR]
Bradely Cooper is riding high on all the success he’s enjoying of late thanks to the warm reception his latest Silver Linings Playbook has received, but the media likes to harp on what’s next incessantly. Ergo, the endless chatter that Bradley Cooper will be starring in the inevitable biopic about Lance Armstrong.
Cooper, however, is having none of it, saying that the very idea is “so nuts”. The rumor mills are resisting his resistance, given that J.J. Abrams recently acquired the rights to the Armstrong story from a writer at the New York Times and that “he’s in talks with Cooper about starring in a biopic and that the actor emailed him expressing interest.”
Cooper has responded with the classic “I have no idea what he’s talking about”, which probably means something will be announced very, very soon.
