Ed Harris will play John McCain opposite Julianne Moore's Sarah Palin in HBO's Game Change

03.24.2011by:

I decided not to use an image of grizzled actor Ed Harris (THE WAY BACK, THE ROCK) because we all pretty much know what he looks like and we know he's visually more or less in the same ballpark as former presidential candidate John McCain. Instead, I'm using the infamous image above of the Arizona Republican senator to pose the question: Can Ed Harris be this f*cking terrifying?

Harris joins the lovely Julianne Moore (ANOTHER BULLSHIT NIGHT IN SUCK CITY, CHLOE) who will be playing the good-looking but utterly retarded former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin. "Game Change" is an HBO adaptation of the book by authors John Heilemann and Mark Halperin. As reported previously, the project will tell "the defining story of a new era in American politics, going deeper behind the scenes of the Obama/Biden and McCain/Palin campaigns than any other account of the historic 2008 election." Jay Roach (LITTLE FOCKERS, "Recount") will direct from a script by actor and sometimes writer Danny Strong ("Recount").

Harris most recently did Peter Weir's very good THE WAY BACK as well as WHAT'S WRONG WITH VIRGINIA? opposite Emma Roberts and Jennifer Connelly. He'll next be seen in the comedy THAT'S WHAT I AM and then next year in MAN ON A LEDGE alongside Elizabeth Banks, Jamie Bell, and Sam Worthington.

Antarius, why don't you go back to the bible belt whipping county you came from and shut the fuck up. If you honestly think people call her retarded because they can't "debate" her, then you must have just finished watching the march 17th episode of O'Reilly where Ann Coulter told America that nuclear radiation is actually GOOD for you. I am no longer a republican, and certainly not a democrat. If you call yourself either, you are the reason America is doomed.

P.S.

You can't effectively debate someone whose entire belief structure (and that of their constituents) is based entirely on a mythical figure from 2020 years ago.

No more political biopics on recent figures. Save it for people of great importance (that is not a stab in any way at McCain, Palin, etc--I'd be saying this if it were about Obama and I felt this way when "W" was made).

People around here need to quit being biased. It's constantly about bashing conservatives. While I am very much an independent and share beliefs that are kind of all over the spectrum, I find it remarkable that I rarely hear or read criticism directed at Obama. While I

While I certainly don't think Palin is an appropriate political candidate, there is nothing wrong with her as a person and furthermore, Obama has no credibility and is less qualified to run the country than her.

interesting picture


Sounds interesting but still think the porn star in nailing palin looks closer than moore. As for the picture here is two captions for humor's sake. enjoy

Caption 1: Prepare for the sequal to zombie raegan its zombie McCain. Brains!
Caption2: Little did the crowd realize that McCain's secret identity as pedo bear was coming to the surface.

I assume you're referring to Jesus Christ. It's your right to debate whether he was the son of God or not, but it is a historical fact that he existed. I don't know what other figure you could be referring to.

One's spiritual beliefs are not always intertwined with their political beliefs. You can indeed have a debate with someone who holds spiritual beliefs. Your excuses are incredibly lame. I've always found it interesting how people won't refute someone's comments and run their mouths,

I've always found it interesting how people won't refute someone's comments and run their mouths, spewing the most juvenile, ridiculous comments and when confronted their copout is "duurrrrr....nobody cares." Well obviously YOU care or you wouldn't have responded.

Retort

If you challenge someone's stances on a chat forum, either they or their followers are gonna start a big-ass, mindless debate that no one is going to give a shit about on said forum, needlessly irritating those who just came to read about movie news.

Stick with shallow remarks, and you can keep a slight leash on the bullshit :)

I love how many negatives Antaris got with no one challenging his stance with Palin besides calling her a weirdo d-bag (which she is), but your proving his point on liberals. If you just said something as simple as I don't agree with her bringing her religion into her political life when she wants to run for a position that represents an entire nation of people with different views, races, etc.

But mostly, good casting for a story no one cares about

Wish it were William Devane

I love Ed Harris. I keep thinking one day soon he'll be taking home a little gold man for a paperweight.

But I'll be honest, I don't like him particularly for the role of McCain. For starters, he's too friggin' tall.

I long ago decided William Devane is the only actor with any name recognition suited to playing the cantankerous senator from Arizona. Think about it. There is no one else.

Absolutely right. All liberal stances can be ripped to shreds by a headless monkey with three assholes. Liberals can't debate. That's why when they lose they congregate and break shit.

I think its funny how liberal film makers waste money making s movie about past politics that are completely irrelevant to us now.....at least "Recount" served some kind of purpose, even if it was biased like every political movie EVER made.

Hey George you reading Huffing Bullshit for the Palin is retarded line? Every leftist, progressive blogger can only call her retarded since they cant debate her on the issues. Try reading something other than that shit and maybe you will learn more than what the fucking media spoon feeds ya everyday. I come to this website for opinions and news on movies not your personal political views.

Ha! Not sure where to start here...you are wrong sir. Besides, all of the columnists interject personal opinions into these news blurbs - so you disagree on this one. Calm down. Go watch Fox News you will feel better.

It makes me shudder everytime hearing/reading someone defending Palin and to see how big of a following she has made over the years is something I've been in awe too. Shes gonna be running for president during the next election and it scares me to picture her as the president of the US. To any of her supporters please further investagate her view points and political standing without a religious backdrop.

How does she scare you more than the moron we have in the office now? How about instead of worrying about Palin running for president you learn what the left is doing to our country NOW!

The saddest part is number of people in the world who don't know how to deal with it, so they SORT the world into "we" vs "they". "Liberal vs Conservative"....really, it has no meaning. Just like "Democrat vs Republican". There are thousands of issues, many of them intertwined, and neither party's platform can be 100% right or 100% wrong.

Why name call and use "liberal", when that really isn't a descriptive title of anything? "The Left" vs "The Right"...really? Sigh.
