The Program Trailer: Ben Foster Becomes Lance Armstrong (Right Down to the Doping)

By

In an interview with The Guardian this week, Ben Foster revealed that he took performance-enhancing drugs to get into the proper mind-set to play Lance Armstrong for The Program. Foster does not recommend it: "Doping affects your mind. It doesn’t make you feel high. There are behaviors 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." Sounds terrible, but on the bright side ... judging from this trailer, it worked!
