HBO’s GAME CHANGE: Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin

Julianne Moore (not Tina Fey?) as Sarah Palin, the bespectacled creature from the far corners of the world that the Republican party unleashed during the 2008 U.S. presidential campaign. At that time, Palin’s Bridge to Nowhere almost took her to the vice-presidency of the United States; now four-time Academy Award nominee Julianne Moore brings her to life in HBO’s upcoming Game Change.

A dramatization of the 2008 campaign, Game Change stars Moore as Palin, Ed Harris as John McCain, Woody Harrelson as Steve Schmidt, McCain’s senior campaign strategist; Ron Livingston as Mark Wallace, another top McCain advisor; and Melissa Farman as Dancing with the Stars contestant Bristol Palin. No word yet on who’ll play Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and their advisors.

Jay Roach, the director of both HBO’s 2008 drama Recount — about the messy 2000 US presidential election — and Meet the Fockers (!), will handle the proceedings. Recount screenwriter Danny Strong adapted John Heilemann and Mark Halperin’s bestseller.

    It will be interesting to see Julianne Moore play Sarah Palin! By the looks of the photo, however, she seems to create a perfect resemblence with her matching up’do and trademark glasses!
