Trial Balloon — Bradley Cooper wants to play Lance Armstrong

ImageHe’s a longer than long shot at the Oscars this year, but he’s nominated and he’s in that company.

He’s box office, having mostly a string of hits under his belt as leading man. Let’s forget about “The Words.”

And being buff and dashing and handsome and, if you saw “Silver Linings Playbook,” pretty damned good at the whole Roid Rage thing, capable of being intimidating — Bradley Cooper would make a great Lance Armstrong in the upcoming J.J. Abrams production about the fallen sports hero.

Cooper is starting to lobby for the part.

He said so in an interview with the BBC.

I can totally see it.

Who’d play Sheryl Crow?
