The Lance Armstrong casting rumors have begun! News broke last week that Paramount Pictures and J.J. Abrams are planning a biopic about Armstrong and Bradley Cooper has volunteered himself for the role of the cyclist.

"I would be interested in [playing Armstrong]," Cooper told BBC News. "I think he's fascinating. What a fascinating character."

Cooper is currently up for an Academy Award for his role in "Silver Linings Playbook." The actor was also nominated for a Golden Globe award for his performance, but lost to Hugh Jackman, who nabbed the award for his role in "Les Miserables."
