Wilson: 'Lance Armstrong Thinks I'm Cruel To The Elderly'

LUKE WILSON was left embarrassed when LANCE ARMSTRONG visited the set of his directorial debut THE WENDELL BAKER STORY - because the cycling champion first saw him shouting at elderly actors HARRY DEAN STANTON and SEYMOUR CASSELL. Wilson co-directed The Wendell Baker Story with his brother Andrew and was angry with cult actors Stanton and Cassell for not knowing their lines. But the 35-year-old was unaware Armstrong was onset when he lost his temper. He recalls, "I just thought they hadn't done their homework. I was talking to them the way I talk to a friend, and you forget that Harry Dean was almost 80, Seymour's 77. "I was barking lines out to them. And they said, 'That's not the way we work.' And I was saying, 'Well, what the f**k do you want to do if you don't have the dialogue memorised? We don't got time for this bulls**t. "And I glance over, and there's Lance Armstrong, the one day he decides to visit the set. This great champion, and he knows me as this guy that yells at old people."
