Julianne Moore’s transformation into Sarah Palin in the HBO film Game Change, set to premiere in March, is striking. Guess that's how you earn four Oscar nominations.

The 51-year-old actress stars opposite Ed Harris (as John McCain) and Woody Harrelson (adviser Steve Schmidt) in the film based on the 2010 book of the same name.

Game Change centers around the '08 presidential elections, following the U.S. Senator’s run and decision to select Palin, then governor of Alaska, as his running mate:

“In terms of research I did on the way campaigns are conducted, so much is about how do you get on the air, how do you get the most media attention," Moore said.

"How do you make the most noise. When in fact, what we’re all looking for is leadership, we don’t want noise. We want people who are going to take care of us.”

Wow. That's way too intelligent to come from an actual political figure.

The book Game Change chronicled the actions of both parties during the 2008 race, but based on the cast, the film looks to be centered primarily on the Republican side.

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.
