See The Ripple Effect Of Lance Armstrong's Doping Scandal In 'The Program'

Stephen Frears' new biopic chronicles the cyclist's fall from grace.

Lance Armstrong's doping scandal was bound to appear on the big screen sooner rather than later. Enter "The Program," a new biopic directed by Stephen Frears ("The Queen") and written by John Hodge ("Trainspotting"). Opening in theaters and available on VOD this Friday, "The Program" depicts journalist David Walsh's (Chris O'Dowd) efforts to expose Armstong's (Ben Foster) steroid use amid the cyclist's seven consecutive victories at the Tour de France.

The Huffington Post has an exclusive clip from the movie, in which Dustin Hoffman, playing a promotions company chief who has supported Armstrong, meets with Walsh, whose investigation threatens to upend his financial investment.
