Busy bee Lee Pace, currently seen in “Thor : The Dark World” and shortly popping his head into frame for “The Hobbit 2 : Electric Gollumgaloo”, has joined the cast of Stephen Frear’s untitled Lance Armstrong bio.

The Wrap says Pace, who got his house on the Hollywood star map as a result of his popular turn on TV’s “Pushing Daisies”, would play an undisclosed role opposite Ben Foster, who plays Armstrong.

The film, which boasts a rather snazzy support cast including Chris O’Dowd, Guillaume Canet and Jesse Plemons, charts Armstrong’s rise and fall while in the spotlight of the world media.
