First Look at Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin and Ed Harris as John McCain in “Game Change” Trailer [Video]

Julianne Moore Game Change We first heard about Julianne Moore portraying Sarah Palin in the HBO film Game Change nearly a year ago. Sarah Palin could only muster up sarcasm when talking about the movie, which isn’t surprising considering that it is an adaptation of Mark Halperin and John Heilemann’s 2008 presidential election tell-all book that portrays Palin in a terrible and uninformed light.

A year later, and the film’s cast has only grown more impressive. Ed Harris plays an exhausted John McCain whose own campaign ran away without him once Sarah Palin was introduced to the American public, and Woody Harrelson plays adviser Steve Schmidt who tried to cover up Palin’s inexperience, limited scope of foreign policy knowledge, and incompetence by banking on her charisma to carry her through the campaign.

Check out the following trailer for Game Change; the film premieres on March 10th at 9 p.m. ET on HBO.

    1. I completely agree! Julianne Moore makes a really great Sarah Palin and I think the makeup artists and stylists who worked on this movie deserve some sort of formal acknowledgement because Ed Harris looks so much like John McCain it’s kind of scary.

  1. An amazing cast- no doubt, but I don’t think I can watch it. The whole Sarah Palin- phenom makes my stomach turn. I don’t know if I can watch it again (even though I agree with the book’s tell-all leaning)

  2. It portrays Palin in a terrible and uninformed light? Come on, that’s exactly what she does on the telly all the time. We have much better women to represent our case. Just my two cents

  3. Looks interesting but I somewhat cringed when watching the trailer. I worry how this debacle will affect other women’s chances of playing for high office.

  4. I think Tina Fey obviously would have been a stellar choice, but Julianne Moore also has a good resemblance to her too! I actually probably will watch since I love political stuff that has any sort of pseudo scandal
