A new trailer for ‘s “The Program,” a film about the rise and fall of former cycling champ Lance Armstrong, has been released a month ahead of the film’s October 16th UK release.
Recently speaking to The Guardian about his role as Armstrong in the film, actor Ben Foster explained that in order to prepare he actually used performance-enhancing drugs to prep for the role.
Foster says: “For my own investigation it was important for me privately to understand it. And they work. [But] there’s a fallout. Doping affects your mind. It doesn’t make you feel high. There are behaviours when you’ve got those chemicals running through your body that serve you on the bike but which, when you’re not… I’ve only just recovered physically. I’m only now getting my levels back.”
