The Program Official Trailer about Lance Armstrong in Cinemas October 16


From this short clip I don't think this actor looks like Lance enough.

Stashed in: Lance Armstrong, Film, Biking

Just like in the new Steve Jobs movie Michael Fassbender doesn't really look like Jobs.

Which is ok as long as the movie is good. 

If he nails everything else about Lance, maybe it will become believable.

Maybe. Do you know if they're trying to stay true to what happened?

"The film is based on Walsh's book Seven Deadly Sins."

"David Joseph Walsh (born 17 June 1955) is an  Irish sports journalist, who is chief sports writer of the British newspaper The Sunday Times. He is a four-time Irish Sportswriter of the Year and a three-time UK Sportswriter of the Year. Walsh was the key journalist in uncovering the doping program by Lance Armstrong and the US Postal Service Cycling Team. Walsh was vindicated when Armstrong was stripped of all his seven of his Tour titles, and banned from cycling for life, on 22 October 2012."

Found this:

"Actor Ben Foster was "really smart" to take performance enhancing drugs while filming a biopic of Lance Armstrong, his co-star says"

"Foster revealed last week he had followed Armstong's doping programme, to better understand the role."
