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?
Abe Vigoda as McCain.
Let's do some butt slammin!! Time to rock the pooper. Come meet my good friend Ben...Ben Dover. I iz gonna rock your world ms palin. Get that pretty booty all shined up for mr disco stick!!
Boycott HBO ... why would anyone give anymoe time to this divisive idiot. "A Polarizing politician". Is not a good thing. the last thing we need to do is give another rhetoric filled propaganist more airtime. Ignore her and the money and she will eventually go away.
I am hill bill and my favorite thrill is to pop a pill and ram some shrill. I iz gonna hook up with Allison...I want to pound her into submission! I really need to grab dat booty and make things happen...if we can bang soon it will be slammin'. Let's rock this thang!!
Yeah, I wish I was da dude in "Nailin Palin". I really wanna ram dat gal in da pooper. She is gonna be beggin me for more cause I am da real deal. My package is da disco stick that she will be rockin soon. Sorry Todd, u will be out of the picture soon!!
Really? Yeah, I am truly a fruit. I love to take it right in da poop shoot! My faith tells me not to lie, but I had to give up da pie. I decided to become a pillow biter...after always gettin turned down by chubbies – yeah I was lighter. But hey...what can u do when u like da goo. I am in love with dudes and no, I aint no prude!!
I love to rap although it sounds like crap. I am a lez but I also says... dat a dude can try thee and even butt slam me!! I want to get it on and I will pull out the -pon. Let's get bizy and it will make me dizzy. I'll ride that disco stick till it makes me sick. Yeah!!!
Didn't mean to pull my previous posts off the board. I actually like to be a fool!! Bend me over and make me scream!! Dat would be da bomb if you could rock my poop shoot!!
I worship Howard Stern. I also wanna ram Ms Palin in da poop shoot! I iz gonna rock her world!! Where I come from, the ol' hershey highway is da only way!!
I actually am into the devil. My religious take was a hoax. I love satanic music and worship. Jesus doesn't know me at all!! Party on! Booze it up.
THE OBVIOUS CHOICE'S ARE TOM HANKS OR EDDIE MURPHY
Who will play her h0re daughter
How about the adult film star who played Palin in "Nailin' Palin"?
Have John Lovitz play McCain!
Tim Conway would be perfect McCain
Can I kiss her brown ring
A dinasour would work. with locked arms and all a T-rex might just be perfect.
Since they have Julianne Moore, perhaps they can toss in a Boogie Nights style nude scene or two. That would be awesome on so many different levels.
I like grils.
That's GIRLS, you dumbazz.
No, I like grils too.
I think Roseanne Barr should play Palin
Michael Hogan aka Saul Tigh from BSG, definitely.
A female bozo the clown.
Not asking who should play you morris
Question should be, "Why would someone want to portray Sarah Palin?". Times can't be that bad for actors and actresses that they would want to do that to their career.
Palin should play herself, after all she's not busy at the moment, being out of politics after quitting halfway through her duly elected term as governor of Alaska.
If we’re looking for someone with similar credibility as a serious politician I was thinking Benny Hill.
Bob Balaban would make an O.K. McCain
How about Charlie Sheen?
I think palin is hotter than Julian Moore. Besides, they should have picked Sarah Palin to play Sarah Palin. I'm sure she wouldn't miss a chance at the spot light.
Stop spreading those rumors around.....Stop spreading those lies...
What? Lisa Ann wasn't available? Because she makes an AWESOME Sarah Palin! Whoo Hoo!
Easy, Paul Giamatti
Sarah Palin is soooooo annoying OMG.
How about Sammy the Bull as McCain. Sammy was a maverick in his day. LOL!
It's funny to see you bash Palin..Obama didn't even know how many states make up America..He has bad mouthed America to every foreign country that would listen. He hasn't a clue what he is doing...
Moore's not cute enough to play her. The fireworks and the better choice would be:
Maybe Sara Palin should play me, I would love to play her and enjoy it
Peter for Mccain Mag for Palin. Lol interesting...
Without commenting on the politics of this (sigh… it's worth noting Strong & Roach received praise from just about everyone on all sides of the aisle for "Recount," which theoretically speaking should've been the most controversial, unpopular movie ever made, so the project should be fair-minded.)
As for playing McCain: Michael Hogan. Michael Hogan. Michael Hogan, from Battlestar Galactica. The guy's a dead ringer for McCain and pretty much played an old John McCain, if McCain had stayed in the military (and then we'd gone to war against evil robots) for four seasons on Battlestar Galactica.
Seriously, check out the pictures. The resemblance is uncanny.
DICK CHENEY as Mccain and JUSTIN BIEBER as Palin...now thats entertainment
IM ALSO THINKING maybe Elton John as Mccain and Molly Cyrus as Palin...either way its a Box office hit
Don't forget special guest Josh Duhamel as Joran van der Sloot .
I THINK BOB BARKER should play Mccain and LINSEY LOHAN should play Palin lol...now dats a movie
These posts are just one more reason why everyone needs to read, "Hell is an Awfully Big City"
What about Tina Fey?
Sen. McCain will play Sahara Palin again
I predict this movie will flop
How about Timothy Bottoms, Will Ferrell, or James Cromwell as McCain? (I guess it depends on how funny the script will be...)
Julianne Moore there isn't enough soap in the world to wash Sarah Palin off you after pretending to be her . I recomend having a frontal labotomy to get into character, then practice saying things that make no sense and then smile profusely while drooling and then keep reminding everyone that you can see Russia from your house. If you should forget your lines and the questions get tuff, just act retarded and drool, seems to work to for Sarah ;)
Just make sure that 4@
Why can't Tina Fey play her? She does an excellent job...and I don't want Sarah Palin making any more money off of the entertainment industry-she's a camera wh00re
It just a waste of money , Saran Palin Isn't worst the money too make of her. I hope who you get can really act because there Isn't no body that could be as dumb as Saran Palin Is.
"Sarah Palin isn't worst the money too make of her... There isn't no body that is as dumb as Sarah Palin is."
No, John. Based upon your grammar, you are much, much, dumber.
Amen to that
Tina Fey! Its a no brainer!
Mike myers. In full Dr evil makeup. Dead ringer for mccain. And I'm a libertarian. This isn't a bash or anything. Every time I look at mccain I picture the Austin powers movies. Specifically the scene where Dr evil does the maceranna
Wow I can't believe some of the comments I'm reading and why they are even posted on here and not removed. Thank God I love Jesus and he loves me.
Wishing something was true has no bearing on its accuracy. As long as you put the burden on Jesus and refuse to take responsibility for yourself, our country will continue to flounder. Let's hope for a post-christian America.
You say that you know Jesus loves you. You can only assume that's the case. In fact, you don't KNOW any such thing. Where I come from, they taught that saying or believing such things made one guilty of the sin of presumption.
Make this a real summer blockbuster... let Will Smith play McCain...
Julianne is a remarkable actress. Dynamic, exceptional, but she's missing something important...she's never had a facelift or implants. How could she possibly play Palin?

It's true, Julianne has some nice little knockers, but Sarah has zeppelins in comparison.
Hey "satan" remember how u were portrayed in South Park? Lol such a loser!!
have palin play herself. it's a win-win. it will feed her incredible ego, and for about a year she'll be too busy with the movie to say stupid things that make it into the news. and, she won't have time to run in 2012. oh wait, she'd probably quit halfway thru.
Right on with that comment!!!
Lisa Ann should play me
Put j low in make sure she has pretty legs a short dress and can say you bet ya
micky rourke should play mccain
John McCain can be played by no one but Michael Hogan. Toss in a bit of cheek padding on the one side and he'd be a dead ringer for the guy.
Just make she has pretty legs and a cute short dress you bet ya
A TACO OR PANCHO VILLA ! OLE !
I dont know. I am a mexikin. OLE. Did i say OLE ? AIIIIEEE CARRRUMBA !
Forget about how you idiot Sarah Palin is , remember that her child is an innocent and never asked to be born with autism. Please be respectful and just call Palin a backwards imbecile.
Actually he has down syndrome, not autism. Big difference
Would it be mean to say that Fred Thompson should play John McCain?
I had heard that ABDULLAH THE BUTCHER was the first choice for the part, but was unable to do it due to his impending induction into the WWE Hall of Fame.
I think the rock should play biden
ABDULLAH THE BUTCHER will carve up the Rock in no time, just like he did to his dad.
Perfect !! But it would be a tough call as to which one is more irritating and obnoxious.
You read my mind. Roseanne would be perfect.
How about letting Julianne Moore run for President and let Sarah Palin play herself in the movie? I'd vote or Julianne Moore before Sarah Palin. Hell, I'd vote for ANYBODY before I'd vote for Sarah Palin.
i'm with joe
Ed Harris is the guy.
Sandi Dunkins unknown sister can be Sarah Palin.
if Cruise would come out of the closet that is.
I am certain this wont be bias at all.
If by 'biased' you mean showing her in all her moronic, bigoted, snotty, holier than thou stupidity then ... yes I'm sure it will be .. as it should... I know I know the truth is hard to handle at times.. like when you first heard Santa wasn't real either.
Oh boy "Wake Up," (YAWN) thanks for proving a point! You obviously don't have any problems – you're take is so fresh, so original & so...
Okay, I can't do this anymore – instead of thawing out adjectives, provide examples or shut the hell up.
She IS the example, have you seen the interview on the umbrella of job creation and health care? Snl did not say anything that she did not...shes a joke unearthing of an hbo anything
You want examples of Sarah Palin's lack of education and the ignorance that goes with that? The Katy Couric interview, for starters. Her misunderstanding of commitment to the full term of governorship. Her use of the phrase involving "blood" in reacting to Az shootings. Her wasting her time getting into fights with the likes of Cathy Griffith or David Letterman. On top of all this, she doesn't seem to have even a smart high school student's grasp of American history. That help, or are you equally I'll-informed about the world.
Examples, you ask? Are you serious? Okay – her utterly convoluted resignation speech. Said she didn't want to be a "lame duck" like all those other governors who stay til the very end. Thereby insulting every governor and politician who stays to the end. Would she resign the presidency too, two years before her term was up? How about the focus on HER attacks after the shooting in Tucson? She could have come forward to defend herself later, or not at all. Obama doesn't react to every birther claim. For more examples, talk to McCain's 2008 campaign staff, McCain's daughter, Palin's former aide, Barbara Bush, and a long list of Republicans who see her for the shallow, money-seeking, narcissistic, crude gal she is.
The only guy is richard dryfuss
I can't remember his name, bit i'm thinking it should be the guy who played the consiglieri in the Godfather movies.
You beat me to it, Richard Dryfus hands down!
I think they should get a gay hollywood actor like tom cruise to play john mccanin
I know who can play Jo Biden! Pee Wee Herman! or maybe Joe Isuzu! (remember him?)
Everyone I can think of is already dead!
Maybe CNN commentator, Gloria Bother, should play Sarah Palin. She's always in bed w/ Palin, and several other tea- partiers.
Clearly a remark by one of the more educated liberals.
That's going to far
Satans in the Hizzle!
Satan need some serious help,don't encourage he/she
Satan's in the Hizzle!
