Julianne Moore is going rogue to play Sarah Palin in Game Change

03.09.2011

Julianne Moore has an interesting role ahead of her.

The red-headed actress will throw on some glasses and grab a box of dye to play Sarah Palin in HBO's adaptation of the novel GAME CHANGE.

The book was written by political reporters, John Heilemann and Mark Halperin. The adaptation will be directed by Jay Roach and written by Danny Strong, the guys who teamed up on another project for HBO, the docudrama RECOUNT. Harper Collins Publishers gives this summary for the novel, "this classic campaign trail book tells 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."

So is Moore a good fit for Palin? While they may not look similar, I think once she's in costume, Moore will be able to hold it down.

Extra Tidbit: This one time there was a Sarah Palin lookalike contest held at a strip club.

I notice the notorious leftist brand of tolerance and acceptance is hard at work here.

Is anyone here over the age of 18? Just curious.

Read the book! It follows all the players Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the pursuit for the Oval Office. Interesting, and very unfortunate. Unfortunate in that we learn that amongst the candidates, few aren't worthy of the responsibility.

Here we go again...

This is almost as bad as Oliver Stone directing Josh Brolin as George W. Bush. While I think of Julianne Moore as an amazing actress, I don't know that she'll pull this off believably. Remember her interpretation of Southerner Clarice Starling? Horrendous portrayal. Also, Jay Roach is great. At COMEDY. This is gonna be another farcical and embarrassing liberal Hollywood rant on how stupid Palin is. Sarah is not only smoking hot, she does have THE BRAINS. Please, Ms. Moore, be true to life.

Of course you would think Palin has brains. Too bad McCain's team didn't and picked a VP that lost them the election.

Julianne Moore is so beautiful...

...and Sara Palin, despite being as nutty as a fruitcake, isn't harsh on the eyes (just the ears and brain). I'd see this.

If Palin needs to be portrayed in a movie then it should be a comedy. Otherwise it would just enhance her status, which she doesn't deserve.

no no NO NO NO NO NOOOO!!

Leave Palin ALONE!! I don't want to hear Jack nor Shit about that waste of human brain cell tissue.
Plus, Moore is NOT a good choice for portraying her. This just screams terrible no matter what angle it's viewed from.

It would be more ironic if Fred Thompson played McCain.

Really?

Won't this just further validate Palin's "career"? I'm all for normal, everyday people moving up in the world and doing things that they believe are right, but Sarah Palin was and always will be best suited for something like Survivor: Doofus Island rather than real-world politics. A movie about her attempt to be recognized as a respectable politician will only make her seem like less an idiot and more like a sane, rational person. Is that really what America needs right now?

I'm sure she'll look once once all the cosmetics are dealt with, but this is definitely not obvious casting.

But really, there is only one person who comes to mind when thinking about Sarah Palin. I thought about it the day Palin was confirmed as a VP candidate. No one but Tina Fey comes to mind for this role. But that's just the OBVIOUS choice.

I guess if Tina Fey isn't available, Moore is a good fit. I actually prefer Moore's lighter roles to her more dramatic ones. Kids are all right, Lost World, and especially Evolution.

I'm not sure about this. Not saying Moore couldn't play the part, but if her dialogue consists of anything other than "Duuuuuhhhhuurrrrrr", she'll make Palin look intelligent.

Actually, Sarah does a pretty good job of doing that FOR us, Balboa6. Listen to her talk for a few minutes. That's all that's needed.

That's about what I expected to read. I have listened to her talk. What sounds particularly unintelligent? There is a difference between one's politics not being agreeable and said person being stupid. Just because you disagree with her, it doesn't constitute intellectual inferiority on her part.

To state an obvious example...you have to have a limited amount of intelligence at some level to hold her religious beliefs. Anyone with such skewed opinions on abortion, creation, and sex clearly isn't seeing things straight. It's a very worrying thing, this is a potential leader of the free world we're talking about.

Y'know what we REALLY need...is a reboot of [link] dot com. That was a wonderful collection of Bush's absolutely retarded public statements and antics.

Would love to see [link] dot com and have it dedicated to Palin.

Palin is a genius. I am a fan of her performance art. She is 2nd only to Charlie Sheen.

seriously, can't knock someone who fooled thousands of morons into making her rich.

@C_Macleod - admitting palin is a circus clown doesn't automatically make you an Obama supporter. Just ask Karl Rove, the Bush Family, Chris Cristie, George Will, David Brooks... and other Republicans that can actually name newspapers they read.

@trismegistus

So, believing in a catalyst (God) to the process (of evolution), not supporting promiscuity and not agreeing with aborting babies as a means of birth control constitute stupidity?

@Balboa6

No, but lacking an open mind towards other possibilities and blindly following beliefs the way she does constitutes stupidity. Seriously, it was bad enough having Bush ram Christian values down our throats, the last thing we need is another politician doing the same thing.
