Julianne Moore to Play Sarah Palin

Julianne Moore has been cast in HBO’s Game Change to play former Alaska governor Sarah Palin. Directing the film will be Jay Roach who did Meet the Parents and HBO’s Recount. It’s the perfect marriage between slapstick comedy and politics which is exactly why Sarah Palin is so popular. People love to make fun of her because she’s an idiot at times. Most times.

Game Change is based on Mark Halperin and John Heilemann’s book about the 2008 presidential elections and follows John McCain’s campaign from his selection of Palin as his running mate to their ultimate defeat in the general election.

Danny Strong, who previously wrote the Roach-directed Recount, penned the script for Game Change. Roach is executive producing, with Strong co-executive producing. [Deadline]

Tina Fey would have been the obvious choice but that would have been too easy. They don’t want to make it seem like they’re just phoning it in. You have to at least make it look like you’re earning that paycheck.
