Damon to play Armstrong?

UK newspaper The Guardian reports that Oscar-winning actor Matt Damon is currently negotiating a role to star in film based on Lance Armstrong's first biography, It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life. US television channel ESPN 2 also said Damon was Armstrong's preferred choice for the role, with the 35 year-old apparently a cycling enthusiast and keen to shape up for the part.

Described as a 'method actor', Damon lost over 40 pounds (18 kilograms) for his role in the film Courage Under Fire (1996), and as shown in The Talented Mr. Ripley and The Bourne Supremacy, he's more than adept at playing other people - so being Lance Armstrong for a few months shouldn't pose too great a hurdle for him.

Excuse me? You gotta have a native Texan in this role so you can get the very slight accent just right. My vote is for Matthew McConaughey.

I'm definitely more of a McConaughey fan, but I think that Damon looks a little bir more like Lance :D
