Lance Armstrong’s career is just sweet dope to Hollywood. THR reports that Andy Samberg and Murray Miller are making another sports mockumentary for HBO called Tour de Pharmacy, a clear reference to Armstrong, who was ignominiously stripped of his seven Tour de France titles after he had been caught doping. As with 7 Days in Hell, which spoofed the longest match in Wimbledon history, Samberg will star, with Miller writing the script. Plus, there’s already a loaded cast including Hamilton’s Daveed Diggs, Phylicia Rashad, John Cena, Dolph Lundgren, Mike Tyson, Julia Ormond, and Nathan Fielder, with more to come. There have already been a number of documentaries and fictionalized accounts of the Armstrong doping scandal, but Tour de Pharmacy will likely be the first to make lots of jokes about moose knuckles.
