Jake Wants to Be Lance

7/24/2006 2:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Turns out BFFs Jake Gyllenhaal and Lance Armstrong are more then just bosom buddies. Jake is interested in playing Lance in a upcoming Sony biopic about the seven-time Tour De France winning, cancer surviving, rock star dating, all around nice guy.

The guys have been spotted riding with Matthew McConaughey in Malibu lately. Now we hear that Jake is in training for the role and part of that training is spending every waking moment with Lance. They were recently spotted together in France for the Tour de France.

With all the research Jake is doing, it's sure to be the role of a lifetime.

I thought Matt Damon had that role. What happened? Does Lance keep messing up the happy ending and delaying the movie?

I would also like to see Matt Damon in the lead. If they show Lance as a teenager growing up winning triathalons, hands down winner for that part is "Dewey" from MALCOLM IN THE MIDDLE- who else looks like his twin?
