Without giving too much away... he basically is the motivational turning point for Vince Vaughn's character towards the end of the movie...

It's realy the most random thing in the world when he just shows up...

but really a lot of fun

Someone that made this movie must be into cycling. I thought Lance did a great job and that it was one of the funnier points in the movie as a matter of fact. I also noticed that in the final tournament some of the players are wearing gloves. Oddly enough in a close-up you can see that the gloves are in fact Pearl Izumi cycling gloves.

Ben Stiller hosted the LAF gala this year. That was on the lance chronicles a couple weeks ago. I also happened to catch stiller on TRL on MTV, he was sporting the livestrong yellow wristband. Maybe they're friends.

Lets see. Lance in a movie and Robin Williams riding the cycling leg of the "Escape from Alcatraz" triathlon.

The whole darn world has switched axis!
