Who Should Play Lance?

OK, OK, wait - I have a suggestion as to who should play Lance Armstrong in the film of his life!

Here goes... How about George Eads? They're both from Texas, they both have that square-jawed thing going, and they're sort of a similar age.

Whaddaya reckon?

(George Eads is, for the record, the guy who plays Nick Stokes in the original - and best - CSI. Oh, c'mon, you knew any suggestion I came up with would be a TV rather than movie actor.)

    Actually, George Eads is not a bad choice. However, he may be a little too bulky. Not that he is big per se, but just taht Lance has a relatively smaller frame because of all the biking. George may have to bike alot and do pilates to lengthen and make lean his muscles.

    By the way, thanks for the shoutout a few posts back:-)

    Yes, I think you're right, Barbara - I too had thought he might be a little too muscular. We need a skinnier guy, don't we? OK, I'm on it :)

    Shoutout - you are very welcome! I like to drive traffic to my blog buddies, and it was also intended as an apology for my failure to answer your many comments on the blog!

    Yeah, but, crucially, George Eads would look damn fine in a pair of cycling shorts. And his CSI-mate Jorja Fox (the one who plays the grumpy intense bird whose parents murdered each other) could play Sheryl Crow.

    By the way, while at IMDB to look up Jorja's name coz I'd forgotten it, I noticed that Isla Fisher apparently appears in The Wedding Crashers. Isn't she supposed to be on a kibbutz learning how to be Jewish so she can marry Ali G? Come on McReadie, gossip hound that you are...what's the score?

    OMG, Jorja Fox would make an excellent Sheryl Crow. Could we somehow work in the CSI actors into the storyline? Does Grisom or Warrick or Catherine or Brass resemble Lance's manager or coach or physical therapist?

    Hey, here's an idea: Lance's mom had him when she was 17 or so. So she's relatively young compared to Lance. How about Marg Helgenberger to play her? She'd be about the right age.

    BTW: in what season did you learn about Sarah's parents killing each other? My husband I just watched the first four seasons on DVD, and htere was no mention of it, as far as I remember. No wonder she's such a crank.

    Here's two toerh ideas--maybe have Greg and Warrick play fellow U.S. team members? I'm less convinced about Warrick, but Greg looks like a biker, and he's a good age for it--maybe the the youngest member that Lance has to take under his wing. Are there any team members who would fit that bill?
