Who will play Sarah Palin in the upcoming HBO docudrama “Game Change?” Of course most of us would automatically guess Tina Fey…but we’d be wrong. According to Entertainment Weekly, Oscar-nominated actress Julianne Moore has landed the role.
The HBO adaptation, directed by Jay Roach and written by Danny Strong, is all about the 2008 election. It follows John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign from when he chose Palin as his running mate through their defeat. The TV movie is based on the bestselling book of the same name.
No other information has been announced – HBO hasn’t mentioned any other cast members or production/scheduling information.
Moore is a four-time Academy Award nominee. Last year, she starred in the critically acclaimed film, “The Kids Are All Right.”
