Orlando Bloom Cycles Into Andy Samberg’s HBO ‘Tour de Pharmacy’
If ever you caught Andy Samberg’s hysterical HBO tennis mockumentary 7 Days in Hell, you’d know the wealth of celebrities along for the ride. Followup cycling movie Tour de Pharmacy already has major names like John Cena and Phylicia Rashad, now joined by Orlando Bloom in a mystery role.
As outlined by The Hollywood Reporter, Bloom has joined the Tour de Pharmacy cast, albeit without specifying any details of the role (gun to our heads, we’d guess a cyclist). Other names in the cast thus far include Will Forte, Dolph Lundgren, John Cena, Daveed Diggs, Julia Ormond, Phylicia Rashad, Mike Tyson and Nathan Fielder.
Tour de Pharmacy is described as a thinly-veiled take on allegations of doping in competitive cycling, most prominently over the Tour de France in the last few decades. David Bernad will executive produce with Murray Miller and Samberg, along with M Elizabeth Hughes and 7 Days director Jake Szymanski, who pulls similar duty here.
It remains to be seen when Tour de Pharmacy might go before cameras, but in the meantime, check out the 7 Days in Hell trailer below for a taste of what we’re in for.
