Bradley Cooper may indeed portray Lance Armstrong on the big screen.

Earlier this week, the actor told the BBC he’d be “interested” in playing the disgraced cyclist, calling him a “fascinating character.”

On Saturday, director-producer J.J. Abrams, who’s developing a biopic about Armstrong, confirmed to ET that the Oscar nominee is possibly in the mix for the project.

“[Cooper] sent me an email and we’ve been talking,” said Abrams.
