To do justice to the complexity, emotional depth and subtle nuances of Lance's story, it'll have to be one of "the greats".

I'm thinking Marlon Brando. Break out the uber-spandex, boys...
I bet he will play himself..... nmCARBON110

Besides getting to ride behind USPS in tight spandex. Its all part of his dream to play the part of Lance. He's been preping for the role for years.
that would be the fashion makeover of the centurySpirito

im sure Gillette corp. would receive an Oscar for Technical Merit. Robin Williams is one hairy mo-fo.

i shudder to think what Hollywood would do with his story - they'll make it a musical with Baz "pop video" Luhrmann directing and Ru Paul playing Lance as s/he has some physical resemblance to lance (post-op). adding to disregard for correctness they'll cript Chris Rock as Johan Bruyneel and from what ive heard the biggest amount of scripts and offers have been landing
on Anna Nicole Smith's doorstep as she is the "hot ticket" at the moment (can she read?). and then they'll bring back Bruce Jenner ......

call me a naysayer but i dread the thought of what crap they'll make out of his story for the big screen. i think the best thing we could hope for would be a documentary by Michael Moore. it'll make money, be entertaining for a wide populance and wont be full of much bull$hit.

Will Smith? Why not a documentary! Hollywood sucks at this.Spunout

Real life stories brought to the screen, ugh. Europe does interesting, entertaining things with documentaries (Etre et Avoir, alot of Finnish work).

But in Hollywood, they'll change the story, f%*k up the sport scenes (yes, a 210 lb Robin Williams in spandex on Ventoux) and belittle the person's life more than support it. But I guess it is all about money, pay Lance cash and make a cartoon.

How about Neil Patric Harris, TV's Dooggie Howser. He might work. He has a thin build and could look a little like him sith the haircut. I think the story would make a better TV move than a motion picture. I liked the Steve Prefontaine movies on Cable, but doubt I would pay to see them in the theaters or even on a rental. I would think a lage portion of the populatio would feel the same way about a movie on Lance.

I think I would rather see a well written movie about the whole euro-cycling scene. Maybe like a cycling version of Grand Prix. Have a young upstart american replace the aging euro team leader. Like Lemond vs Hinault. Throw in a little romance and a drug scandal and you got a story.

Corin Nemec, who was in the TV series "Parker Lewis Can't Lose" about 10 years ago would be a good choice. About the same age/size and a strong resemblance.
Don't know about Lance, but...serbski

...am I the only one who thinks that Tyler Hamilton looks scarily similar to Sean Penn's "Jeff Spicoli" character from "Fast Times..."? Minus the surfer hair-do of course.

OK I HAVE BEEN THINKING ABOUT THIS FOR A WILE NOW. THERE IS A GUY WHO IS ALMOST AN EXACT REPLICA. HE IS POSSIBLE EVEN THE SAME AGE. HE PLAYED IN A WESLEY SNIPES MOVIE WITH GARRY BUSSEY. HE NOW PLAYS IN STARGATE SG-1 ON SCI-FI CHANNEL. HIS NAME IS CORIN NEMEC.

HE WOULD BE THE BEST LANCE.

WHAT DO YOU PEOPLE THINK?
