Bradley Cooper has the need for speed! The Sexiest Man Alive is currently in talks to play Lance Armstrong in his upcoming biopic, which makes sense as he’s not only a SoulCycle fanatic but has a penchant for motorcycles to boot. We’re keeping our fingers crossed to see if he’ll be the one rocking the coveted bike shorts! [E! Online]

Robin Thicke is keeping “Blurred Lines” close. The crooner has filed a lawsuit to shield his summer anthem from possible action by the late Marvin Gaye’s family and Bridgeport Music as many have claimed the hit’s beat sound similar to Gaye’s “Got to Give It Up” and Funkadelic’s “Sexy Ways” (the rights are owned by Bridgeport Music). Luckily, Funkadelic front man George Clinton’s on his side! [The Hollywood Reporter]

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis is taking Equal Rights over the bridge to Brooklyn. The six-time VMA nominees are slated to perform “Same Love” when they take the stage at the awards show August 25th. Though the pair will go toe to toe with Justin Timberlake for Video of the Year, they certainly have Best Video with a Social Message in the bag. [MTV]

Joseph Kosinki is about to enter another dimension as the Oblivion director is slated to helm the The Twilight Zone movie based on the iconic TV series. He’ll be in good company if he signs on, as Leonardo DiCaprio is producing the sci-fi flick. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Daft Punk might be hanging up their DJ equipment as the helmeted hommes were featured once again in a fashion spread. This time around the pair found themselves snuggled up with Milla Jovovich for Carine Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book with all three dressed in Saint Laurent. [Huffington Post]

Happy Birthday, Madonna! It’s time to raise a toast to the mother of reinvention who turns 55 today and hasn’t slowed down, as a recent wardrobe retrospective, her Material Girl line, and tour documentary have kept her quite busy this year. [CNN]
