Julianne Moore playing Sarah Palin? You 'betcha.
CNN has confirmed that the actress will portray the polarizing politician in HBO Film's "Game Change."
According to a statement, the movie is based on the 2010 book by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, and follows John McCain's presidential campaign from the moment he selected Palin as his running mate to their defeat in the general election.
Danny Strong wrote the script and Jay Roach is serving as director; the two previously worked together on HBO's 2008 movie, "Recount."
Of course, we gotta ask: Who should play McCain?
