Of Course There Is A Lance Armstrong Movie Already Being Made! Of Course We Had To Cast It!

We’re betting the second Lance Armstrong agreed to do that revealing Oprah interview this week, a million Hollywood execs shed a single tear, knowing there could be only one Lance Armstrong cheating scandal movie. According to Deadline, Paramount Pictures and producer Jj Abrams beat them all to the punch, closing the deal on the filmmaking rights to the proposal for Cycle of Lies: The Fall Of Lance Armstrong, a book to be written by sports reporter Juliet Macur. That’s right: they bought the proposal to a book that has not yet been written. Now we want to shed a single tear over how genius that is.

Woods bested second-place Lance Armstrong by 23 votes.The rest of the field includes Roger Federer with 25 votes, Michael Phelps with 15, Tom Brady with six and sprinter Usain Bolt with four.

The ballots were turned in prior to the Thanksgiving Day car accident and ensuing scandal. One has to wonder... would the votes have been different if the ballots were cast after the scandal?
