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.
