Ed Harris has been cast as John McCain in Game Change, HBO's retelling of the 2008 presidential campaign, based on the book by the same name,
Harris, a four-time Oscar nominee, will join Julianne Moore, who was already picked to play Sarah Palin, McCain's running mate in their 2008 bid.
The producers have not yet revealed who will play Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden, three other big players in the historic campaign.
What do you think? Will Ed Harris make a good McCain?
While Harris, 60, is a bit younger than McCain, 74, he's definitely got the acting chops. We can see him embodying McCain's gritty, maverick persona quite easily.
Harris and Moore will be a talented pair to watch as the unsuccessful GOP running mates. It will be interesting to see who they're matched up against in the film.
Who do you think should play now-President Obama? If you asked Donald Trump, he'd probably recommend an actor who won't show his birth certificate.
