Lance is the villain and Walsh the hero, The Program plays like a gangster movie, and just premiered in Toronto with a release in theaters next month. Variety has the story, and the new trailer is above.
The movie, which uses Walsh’s book “Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit of Lance Armstrong” as its source, follows Walsh’s pursuit of Armstrong (played by Ben Foster). Walsh (played by Chris O’Dowd) was for many years a lone voice in suggesting Armstrong was doping, and it became a battle of wills between the two. “It did become quite personal because we went back so far,” Walsh told Variety. “I’d interviewed him when he was a kid and I liked him.”
