Golfer Tiger Woods's fall from grace is proving attractive fodder for Hollywood with none other than Oscar winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr lined up to play the shamed sportsman in a biopic.

Hollywood producers want to tell the story of the married father-of-two, who has been linked to 14 different women in the past two months, in a made-for-TV movie, reported

star's resemblance tothe golfer helped him land the role.

"It will make a great movie as people love to see someone fall from the top and try to pick up the pieces of their life. Tiger's scandal just proves the world's biggest sportsman is human," said a source.

Woods' clean-cut family man image was shattered after he crashed a car outside his luxury Florida home in November.

Since then, numerous women, ranging from a waitress to a porn star, have come forward to claim they had an affair

with the golfer.

Woods, 34, has been keeping a low profile. However, his wife Elin Nordegren, 30, has reportedly filed for divorce, seeking half of his 600 million pound fortune.
