“The Program” Trailer

Director: Stephen Frears (High Fidelity, The Queen, Philomena)

Starring: Lee Pace, Ben Foster, Jesse Plemons

Synopsis: Based on the book by David Walsh, a sports journalist searches for evidence that Lance Armstrong’s Tour de France successes are the result of  banned substances.

Notes: Though I’m interested to see Stephen Frears take on this high-stress spotlit story, my main focus is Ben Foster–an actor I’ve been paying attention to through his supporting dramatic roles. This is one of those career-defining opportunities that could make or break anyone’s reputation, and I’m entirely invested in his performance so far.
