Ben Foster is such an underrated, underutilized actor — we are SO FREAKING HAPPY to see him in such a major role!
Seriously, he needs more work! Someone pair him up with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and have them act the shizz out of a movie, and the world will be forever changed!
The proof is in the pudding, and the pudding is totes the first image (above & below) of Ben as Lance Armstrong in Stephen Frears' untitled CYCLING PROJECT!
The pic was tweeted out today by StudioCanalUK and we know it's as legit as it comes! Plus, it was later shared by British cyclist David Millar, who is giving a helping hand to the project!
Trance's John Hodge wrote it based on the book Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit of Lance Armstrong, and it also has Chris O'Dowd and Jesse Plemons in major roles as well!
We can't wait! This is a BIG role for Ben, and we are sooooooo ready!!

Stripped of a whole lot of victories, we bet one of the most painful ones to see go is the stripping of his 2000 Summer Olympics win in Sydney. Then again, he was doping, so we don't really feel that bad for him.
Lance Armstrong has returned his Olympic bronze cycling medal, because that's what happens when you're a cheater!
He tweeted a pic of the medal today (above), along with this:
Looks like Bradley Cooper has decided to help tell the story of The Legend of Doper Lance!
Okay, so that might not be the title of the upcoming Lance Armstrong movie, but Bradley is in talks to become a producer on Red Blooded American (actual title), and potentially to star in one of the two leading roles of Lance and his whistle-blowing teammate, Tyler Hamilton.
Either way, Bradley would put pedal to the metal in either of these parts, and wouldn't need drugs to enhance his performance either!
We already know how natural Bradley is on a motorcycle, a bicycle should be an easy adjustment!

Things are moving fast on all of the Lance Armstrong movies that are jumping to get made, but there's a newcomer that's moving so fast that we're pretty sure the director and Working Title are are doping! LOLz!
They're trying to shoot as soon as THIS FALL for the movie, which is in the early stages still! Director Stephen Frears (who made a pretty great Muhammad Ali movie) seems to be taking his surprise entry in a landscape of Lance movies very seriously!
Lance Armstrong's federal lawsuit wants $120 million out of him, but the disgraced cyclist has the most foolproof defense plan ever to get out of it. And it's absurd and hilarious and by 'foolproof' we mean it will NEVER WORK!
Are you ready for this??
Lance says that the case should be thrown out, because
Lance Armstrong may have been banned from biking after being linked to performance enhancing drugs, but the silver lining of the ugly ordeal was that his cancer research charity, Livestrong stayed intact.
The disgraced biker stepped away from the nonprofit organization, but apparently that wasn't enough for some donors who are asking for their money back!
Talk about a match made in HOLY CRAP!
In the most shocking, jaw-dropping, pinch-us-because-we-must-be-dreaming-about-Zefron news we can remember, Oprah Winfrey has reached down from her magnificent royal tower and extended her glorious hand to the lost and forlorn Lindsay Lohan!!!
In what will be her first interview after finishing up her court-ordered rehab stint, Lindz has agreed to do an exclusive sit-down with The Big O!
Whoa!!! This makes the Lance Armstrong interview look like small (and artificially-enchanced) potatoes!!!
Even CRAZIER, LiLo will be given her own eight-episode documentary series on Oprah's OWN network!!!!
The network's spokesperson confirmed:
