  • From the Boston Herald:

    Hollywood hunk Matt Damon’s brother, Kyle, a triathlete, cruised into the Cycle Loft in Burlington the other day to check on a titanium bike that the store is sending to his celeb sib in Florida. Could it be that he’s gearing up for his starring role on the big screen as seven-time Tour de France champ Lance Armstrong????

    Titanium! I didn't even know such a thing existed. I think Matt would be able to portray Lance very well, he shares that *drive to succeed* gene.

    man he seems to work so much. Wondr if he is going to take time away for family?

    I agree with you. All this work, plus a new baby and a 7 year old in school in Miami. I just don't see how it is all going to work. Time has to be scheduled for family and relationships.

    I so agree with you as well

    There's no timetable for any of the new projects except for Bourne Ultimatum, which will start on 1 August.

    The other projects (Lance biopic, legal drama with Ben) have no start date and may be quite some time off.

    All indications are that the Lance Armstrong picture is getting ready to start filming soon and that Matt is preparing for the role. Also, Steven Soderburgh has said that he wants to start filming Oceans 13 before the end of the year. I am assuming that Matt would not be available until after Bourne which I guess would be about November 1. There have been mentions and rumors of several other roles but I realize some of them may take awhile to actually be ready to film. He has been working nonstop for some time now. He didn't even take off for a wedding or honeymoon. I don't see any evidence of that changing, unfortunately, for his family life.

    The Lance project is a long while off. The script isn't finished, the preparations would likely require a lead-time of over a year (think of the training required), and there's no firm commitment yet from the studio (execs, timing, locations). The filming may also have to be split in two over a period of several months: illness and recovery.

    The O13 could still yet die (hopefully), and nothing else is confirmed.

    This period now is Matt's break.

    I wonder if they will deal with Lance's break-up with Sheryl Crow.

    No, because the movie will be based on Lance's first book, which only really goes up to the first Tour win (pre-Sheryl).

    So all the talk about Sarah J Parker playing Sheryl is nonsense
