So all that stripped-to-the-waist sweaty palling around, cycling, and jogging that Gyllenhaal, McConaughey, and Armstrong treated us to for so long in photo and footage was not a manly ménage after all, but research for an upcoming biopic on the champion cyclist. Both Gyllenhaal and McConaughey were up for the part of the Tour de France multiwinner, but Gyllenhaal let it slip on ESPN that he won the race. In a February 7, 2006 entry on IMDb, Matt Damon is listed as playing Lance Armstrong in the 2007 Untitled Lance Armstrong Project to be directed by Frank Marshall based on Armstrong’s autobiography. Same movie, new star? Or twin films shooting at the same time, like Capote and Infamous?
