Lance Armstrong’s fall from grace was swift and hard. What seems almost swifter is a movie being announced about it, leaving open almost endless possibilities as who we could see bring the story to life of one of the most despicable athletes ever to live. JJ Abrams of the “Star Trek” reboot and “Lost” fame has secured the rights so there is definitely a possibility of time travel and monsters. I can see it now; Lance goes back in time to 1885 and saves Doc Brown from sure death by blood doping.

Heartthrob Bradley Cooper of “The Hangover” and “Silver Linings Playbook” has already said he would love to play Lance. Maybe Armstrong won’t just use EPO on himself, but also rufi riders from other teams during a road race in Las Vegas. In all seriousness though it got me thinking who would I like to see play the cast of characters that make up one of the most scandalous and now hated former champions of all time. I broke it down into two categories. Who could actually end up playing the different players in the story and who I would love to see, but has about as much chance of getting in the movie as Lance winning another Tour De France.

Who do you want to see in the movie that I hope is called “Liestrong: The Magical Bicycle Seat That Was Filled With Steroids and Doped Blood”?
