Casting the Lance/TdF Movie (silly)

The new Lance Armstrong movie which has been announced, with Matt Damon in the title role, got me and my friends to thinking...who would we cast in the major roles? Here's what we have so far....feel free to add/edit

Oops! I Won it Again... (A Cycling Epic)

Starring:
---------
Lance Armstrong - Matt Damon
Chris Carmichael - Ben Affleck (had to put him in the movie somewhere)
Jan Ullrich - Dolph Lundgren ("Lance, I must break you...")
George Hincapie - Vin Diesel (the peloton enforcer)
Tyler Hamilton - Tobey Maguire (the lovable contender who always looks emaciated)
Magnus Backstedt - The Rock (everyone's favorite 211 lb beast)
Iban Mayo - Benjamin Bratt (the suave Spaniard)
Mario Cippolini - Antonio Banderas (the aging showman and chick magnet)
Phillipo Simeoni - Jim Kviesel (the persecuted victim, reprising his role in "The Passion")
Tugboat - Buddy (aka Air Bud)
Phil Ligget - John Cleese
Paul Sherwin - Pierce Brosnan
Al Trautwig - Rowan Atkinson
Bob Roll - Rodney Dangerfield
Thomas Voeckler - Jason Biggs (with some great comic expressions of agony)
Podium Girls - Mary Kate & Ashley
Sheryl Crow - Gina Gershon ('cause we like her...)
Kristen Armstrong - Elizabeth Berkley (...and we needed the "Showgirls" flashback)
Lance's Mom - Sharon Stone
Mrs. Hincapie - Angelina Jolie (attract more of the young male demographic)
Floyd Landis - Sean William Scott (the jokester of the Peloton)
Richard Virenque - Orlando Bloom (the French heartthrob)
Vladamir Karpets - Viggo Mortensen (he'd look good with a mullet)
Thor Hushovd - Sean Bean
Manolo Saiz - Vince McMahon ("Heras, you're fiiiired!")
The Devil (as himself)

Not bad... I was quite amused and somewhat impressed with some of your choices.
