HBO has announced that they have cast Oscar nominee Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin in their upcoming adaptation of the bestselling book Game Change.
Moore will play the Alaska Governor and vice presidential nominee in the upcoming film that will surely generate a ton of buzz. HBO sure does love to adapt films about iconic real-life characters. Al Pacino starred as Jack Kevorkian in You Don't Know Jack.
Jay Roach is set to direct the film based on a script written by Danny Strong. The duo worked together on HBO’s docudrama on the 2000 election drama, Recount. The film is based on the book by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin written after John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign.
I would love to see Tina Fey in this role, although it would be big break from type for her. I think Moore is great and will be fine in the role.
