Apparently Jake Gyllenhaal stalkers have seen Jake riding around on his bike a lot recently, traveling to France to watch the Tour de France, and hanging out with Lance Armstrong.
Could these random occurances be connected?
Well apparently Sony is planning on doing a Lance Armstrong bio-pic, and Jake Gyllenhaal wants the part.
A Lance Armstrong story would be an interesting one, being that Armstrong has not only won the Tour de France 7 consecutive times (1999-2005) but his personal story is also one that is filled with triumph and defeat.
Armstrong's battle with testicular cancer (that spread to his lungs and brain) serves as a strong backdrop to a story that suddenly becomes much more than a sports story.
I don't know if Sony would include it in the film, but I think the Nike Partnership with 10/2 and the Lance Armstrong Foundation also make for an interesting story.
I would also wonder if they would include the allogations that Lance had used performance enhancing drugs in the Song bio-pic?
Anyways, it's an interesting thought, and Jake Gyllenhaal seems to want the role bad, especially for all the bike riding and traveling he's been doing.(via)
