TIFF: Lance Armstrong Lies In First 2 Clips From 'The Program' Starring Ben Foster & Chris O'Dowd

The Toronto International Film Festival kicks off tomorrow, and so begins a flurry of activity, premieres, some movies that will surprise and others that will disappoint. One picture with the biggest question mark around it is Stephen Frears‘ “The Program.” It’s been in the can for a while, but the premiere will take place this weekend, and the first two clips have arrived online.

Ben Foster leads the movie as disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong, in this movie chronicling the champion’s fall from grace. In these two clips, we see him practice lying in the mirror about testing positive for using performance enhancing drugs, and then dancing around a question posed by journalist David Walsh, played by Chris O’Dowd.

“The Program” has been picked up for North American release by eOne. No release date has been set, though the picture opens in the U.K. and France on September 16th. Watch below.
