Moore Takes Palin’s Part for HBO
Tina Fey might have been too busy (or too obvious), but luckily for HBO, the lovely and talented Julianne Moore has agreed to play the world’s most famous Wasillan, Sarah Palin, in HBO’s upcoming movie based on the book “Game Change.” But who’ll play John McCain?

Your support matters…
HBO announced today that it has signed Julianne Moore to play then-Alaska-governor Sarah Palin in its coming movie Game Change, a behind the scenes account of the 2008 election that dishes dirt on Republican and Democratic campaigns.* (The film is being directed by Jay Roach, who helmed HBO’s Recount, about the 2000 election’s aftermath.)
