Actor Bradley Cooper has signed on to produce and potentially star in a movie based on disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong, according to U.S. reports. The Silver Linings Playbook star is reportedly teaming up with director Jay Roach and will play either the seven-time Tour de France champion or Tyler Hamilton, Armstrong's teammate who blew the whistle about the doping scandal Armstrong was part of during an appearance on U.S. news show 60 Minutes. The film, Red Blooded American, will be one of three Lance Armstrong films in development, according to Deadline.com. Cooper was reportedly originally linked to J.J. Abrams' Armstrong biopic, but decided to go with the Warner Bros. project instead, according to reports.
