Palin to Be Portrayed by . . . Julianne Moore?
Despite Tina Fey's spot-on impersonations, Moore will play Palin in upcoming HBO film
HBO Films announced this week that 4-time Oscar nominee Julianne Moore will play former VP candidate Sarah Palin in an upcoming movie for the cable channel.
Moore will play Palin in HBO's adaptation of the 2008 election book, Game Change, by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann. Yet-to-be-announced cast members will also play Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and John McCain.
As the Huffington Post noted, "It will take quite an acting job for Moore to play the role -- she's an outspoken liberal, and backed Obama during the election."
