...who would you cast as Lance? Or Chris Carmichael? Or Johan Buryneel? Or Phil and Paul? Or George/Roberto/Chechu and the rest of the team (Including Kevin and Tyler)? Who am I missing?

For Lance, I think you need fresh blood to be credible. I don't think a superstar would seem right.

For Chris Carmichael, Robin Williams, if you can make him look young enough. Not a comedy role, but it just seem right, given Robin's support for Lance.

For Phil and Paul, cameo roles.

Don't forget Kristin and Lance's mother. They would be essential.

Would anyone besides cyclists be interested in this?

Lance's Mom: Charo!
Sep 27, 2002 7:17 AM
Kristin and Lance's mom could be played by the same actress.
Sep 27, 2002 7:21 AM
I can't see Charo as Kristin! :)
I noticed that too. . .js5280

They look a LOT alike. Not surprising though considering how close Lance is to his mother and face it, Kristin (and so is Lance's mom) is a very easy to look at. Judged by Lance's description, her writings, and through second-hand from a few people, I imagine she has a beautiful personality to match. I think the kids must have Lance's TdF metobolism during pregnacy, she's really thin now. My good friend runs into her at the gym now and then in Austin. Heading down there at the end of Oct, figure I have to run into the Armstrong's one of these trips.

This movie can't come out for a couple years....Mary Kate and Ashley need to be legal before they can get with Kirsten Dunst..... How about Madonna as his Mom ??

oops this is a movie not a PORN??
Lance = Corin Nemec...Tommy B
Sep 27, 2002 8:32 AM
The best fit for Lance's part has to be Corin Nemec (known best for TV's "Parker Lewis Can't Lose", Stephen King's "The Stand", and the TV series Stargate SG-1.)

Corin has had enough acting experience to pull it off, yet he is still a relatively "fresh face" by hollywood standards, and this role could be a big hit for him. He seems pretty likeable and isn't played-out like Ben Afleck (yuck!)

You be the judge:

Lance Armstrong
Born: Sept. 18, 1971
Austin, Texas

Corin Nemec
Born: Nov. 5, 1971
Little Rock, Arkansas

Keanu plays all roles ala Eddy Murphy in "The Nutty Professor" or Peter Sellers in "Dr. Strangelove... or how I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb".

We abide.
