Oscar-winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr. has been tapped to play philandering golfer Tiger Woods in an upcoming biopic.
“‘It makes a great movie because people love the drama of seeing someone really successful fall from the top and then scramble to pick up the pieces of their life,” a producer dished to The Daily Mail this week.
The womanizing sportsman, 34, has been in the international spotlight after a tabloid report and a bizarre car crash set off allegations of more than a dozen extramarital affairs.
Gooding Jr. — who most recently won acclaim for his portrayal of heart surgeon Ben Carson in a 2008 TNT TV movie — won an Academy Award for his portrayal of football ace Rod Tidwell in Cameron Crowe’s 1997 box office hit Jerry Macquire.
