We know Julianne Moore can pull off the Sarah Palin look, but now we get a peek at how she'll carry the persona.
HBO has released a teaser for their 2012 movie "Game Change," adapted from the best-selling book by journalists John Heilemann and Mark Halperin.
The teaser takes us back to the 2008 presidential election campaign trail, depicting the then-Republican presidential nominee John McCain deciding to go with then-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running-mate.
Woody Harrelson stars as the manager of McCain's campaign, Steve Schmidt, with Ed Harris as the Senator himself. The clip is brief, just 52 seconds, but by the end we do see Moore-as-Palin take the stage to accept the nomination to run as vice president.
What do you think of the clip? "Game Change" should arrive on HBO - which is owned by the same parent company as CNN - in March.
i would like to say that it is a very usful for home babics business and offices
So this is what I figured in 2011: Palen for Hollywood 2012
Great tips Brian!If I could get ckooing (I mean the day-to-day kind) from my B list to the A list I'd consider myself very successful, not to mention less stressed.I think it is also the one-more-thing' added to already busy schedules that leads to overwhelm.
Wow, that clip looked terrible.
Why don't you good Democrats disavow nasty attacks like this by the liberal-taliban?
This is the same blunder Oliver Stone made with his hit piece on Bush. Conservatives won't pay for this propaganda and, judging by the comments on this board, liberals won't be watching it either.
Ho-hum, another hit piece on Sarah Palin. Julianne Moore looks about 20 years older than Palin.
HBO has about as much artistic credibility as Michael Moore. Therefore, this lame attempt at helping Barack Hussein get re-elected won't work.
I liked her in Short Cuts where you get to see her flame red kunt.....yummy.
Holy _______! I am not a big fan of Julianne Moore and much less of Sarah Palin, but the two are almost indistinguishable. Julianne is outstanding! The obvious question is now: was McCain's campaign manager smoking as much dope and/or other drugs as Woody Harrelson when he came up with the idea of Palin as McCain's running mate? Maybe there is some typecasting involved here. There are a lot of intelligent women in politics in this country that could have changed the game plan for McCain, why did they settle on Palin? I guess I will have to check it out on HBO.
So many people hate this woman...does hollywood really think getting someone of Moore's talents to play her is going to pay off? Fire the exec who thought of this one!
Oh blech. I will not be watching this.
I'm looking into my crystal ball and I predict this movie will be a total failure flop.
Did they get some rapper turned actor to play obama? Someone like 5 cent or snope dog.
Having big boobs and a lot of junk in your trunk isn't a talent!
Junk? This gal takes care of herself. She ran an 8 minute mile, 13 times in a row, while in Iowa last past August. Let's see Obama make it 100 years!.
It would be nice to “want to see” the President of the United States Sarah Palin
Please no Glen Rice scene !!! Poor Glen Rice, seems like a decent guy but he must have post traumatic stress disorder from the incident.
Be careful – a lot of readers won't see through your sarcasm. With a grateful tear in their eye they'll applaud you for putting their ideology into poetry.
I am all for showing the disgraced ex governor in all her glory like Josh Brolin's portrayal of Skippy Bush in "W", but Palin will take it as publicity and relish in the PR glow that is Sarah, regardless how truthful and cringing her character in the movie turns out. Dangerous for us. We dont want her back! We already have the male equivalent in Rick Perry and he wont go away either!!! MILF or not, please go away.
Caribou – you're on the money with your take. My only feeling about this movie is that it's a lesson on how you can take a ditzoid from out of nowhere and make them into some sort of hero or idol. Frankly , this whole story seems like a remake of "Face In The Crowd" starring Andy Griffith except with a female persona.
Who is right. This hollywood robot couldn't hope to match Sarah Palins chaacter and integrity while mouthing a smear driven script from the hacks at HBO...
I don't care what ya'll say, Palin is an outright MILF.
Oh yeah! And she must keep her glasses on!
Palin? Really? Come on folks, who cares about this bimbo?
Sounds great! Can I join you?
Liberals and media are one in the same so who cares about this movie, julian moores a good actor wasting her time going on a role thats shallow. Worry about the country and not your political party, including obama. He ended the war (right before re election), so what, it was supposed to be august 2 years ago so not much kutos there. Glad we put in all that stimulus money, too bad the economys still in the dump, along with unemployment and the value of a dollar is still going down. Atleast he took care of immigration control, o wait, he just made a new bill so I can pay for their healthcare, thats right. Yet you all take about palin, she had alaska running bettter than obama has america going.
Hey douchie, first of all, it's spelled, "kudos". Secondly, Palin doesn't run Alaska anymore so whatever's going on there has nothing to do with her.
Sounds like you only consider yourself important... oh yeah.... I love seeing conservative posts on CNN because they are always full of grammatical errors and insight. First off, understand what you're talking about (you are full of ridiculous statements that are of no truth or merit) and PLEASE re-investigate Palin's work in Alaska. Educate yourself for Christs sake, that's all I ask. WE ALL need to help each other out. We are in this hole because of uneducated people like you.
Uhh – she quit as governor of alaska so she could pig out at the partisan $$ trough.
"he just made a new bill so I can pay for their healthcare"
You're a fool since illegals are specifically called out as ineligible for coverage under the new plan... and the crux of the plan is to ensure every citizen pays or helps contribute to their own healthcare costs – so uninsured people with no ability to pay don;t show up to the hospital as often, requiring the rest of us to pay for them. You have things completely backwards.
The economy has been slowly improving. The main stallout in 2011 / 2012 has been largely due to the eurozone crisis unfolding... but I don;t expect you to actually deal with facts.
Te devaluation of the dollar is ON PURPOSE – since it devalues debt being held (i.e. it is devaluing the outstanding balances of people's mortgages since housing values declined). In addition it makes US goods cheaper overseas and foreign goods more expensive here... helping manufacturing substantially.
China pegs the yuan-dollar exchange rate artificially low – making their products cheaper here and ours costlier there. As a consequence, they are importing our inflation at a multiplier... helping to cause the high rates of inflation there. This will either force them to drop the peg, or accept unacceptably high inflation (all the while devaluing their holdings of US debt).
What you don't know would fill volumes.. of things called books.
In the united states there is now right or left, republican or democrat any more just established order. We are in the same situation as syria, under survaliance, opressed, the media is censored and biased "including cnn, fox, msnbc", and although they are not shooting us down in the streets, they kick you're doors in take you're family and you disapear without a trace. And now they made it completly legal to do this in the new defense bill with a indefinite hold without due process at millitary prisons.
I just pray that there is enough time for the citizens that claim to be republican or democrat realize there is no difference. And draw a line and make a stand.
I and my fore fathers have served this country since coming in the early 1700s, and if they saw this country now they would be disgusted,
Did they get that kid, Corky, from that show "Life Goes On" to play the retarded baby?
Palintwit is on a roll ! You go girl ! Lol !
You took the words right out of my mouth! The only dialogue that palin created was made up crap. Then her minions would grasp at her words, & they became "their" truth. Some of the most uninformed people in America.
Joe if they made a movie about obama they would show how he ended the war in irac that george bush started bush started the war because his father did not go all the way in to irac bush killed over four thousand soilders and thousans of more with brain damage
Obama didn't end the war. The original agreement Bush made was to end it by 2011. Obama didn't do anything to end this.
Hi Gretchen! I'm doing 4 at a time, because I'm silautlneousmy adding them to Flickr, and didn't want to overwhelm my Flickr stream with photos of my feet :) And yes, I'm using my 28 everyday to try to get some continuity with the placement of my feet. In hindsight, I probably should have used my 20mm, but it's manual focus (old lens from my Dad) and not sure I'd always want to focus manually! Thanks for the nice comments :)
Are you brain damaged or just another conservative moron?
More liberal slant propaganda from HBO. History is still being written by the Victors.
Sarah Palin may not have been the best choice to run, but she did spur a dialogue and clear definition of stance in the US.
Funny the liberal/progressive call to arms is their outspoken and sometimes outrageous expression of their First Amendment rights, but they are alwasy the first to quell free speech at Universities when Conservative voices wish to exercise their rights as well.
The only good thing is most intelligent Americans will see this latest attempt to sway public opinion for what it really is, a hit-piece propaganda tool created by the left wing progressive idealogues.
btw, Cancelled my HBO and HBO on demand along with Cinemax about 30 minutes ago. So tired of Bill Mahar (sp) and the other loony craptastic shows HBO tries to pass off as entertainment.
Then go back to Fox "News" where you can feel good about your ignorance. We all know you conservative morons can't think independently because you're all stupid sheep. And I'm sure HBO could care less that you canceled your subscription.
No Palintwit, there is a difference. Fox presents their fiction only from a single, narrow ideological/political viewpoint, whereas the Inquirer is a little more open minded in how they present theirs.
Wow! I guess HBO and Cinemax must really feel bad about you cancelling your service – NOT! Palin made a fool of herself and her family. Glad they are not on the national scene anymore. Cheer up. I see she still has her phoney gig of FAUX SNOOZE.
Why not tina fay sara hate tina sara is so jelous of tina ya bet ya
52 seconds is to long i think 30 seconds is the story of saras life
I hope miss moore wears a short pretty blue dress and saids you bet ya
The Palin family are the Kardashians of the political world. They need to have their own boycott website too.
She actually suits the role. Never gonna watch the movie but just saying.
I'd rather watch lojenk's dumb flicks than any flick about the Palins!
Palin is a neocon hack, who should not be elected dogcatcher.
Who watches this stuff?
Well she was the Gov of Alaska! Better than comunity organizer!
Right, destroyer – how dare our president work for charities!!!!! Moron.
Uh, I think Obama's resume now lists President of the United States for the past three years. A little more impressive than a small-state governor QUITTER.
@Destroyer – You mean half-term governor. Remember, she quit her job as Gov. to go make money on FAUX News and that stupid reality show. I hear she did nothing while Gov. of Alaska. I'll take the community organizer over the Imbecilla from Wasilla any day!
I love your series! aminazg composition and quirky views throughout :) Do you always use your D700 (I know this from flickr not a stalker, haha)? I'd love to do a FWIS project, but waiting till I have a smarter phone to do so :)
Lol @ Woody Harrelson as Steve Schmidt. That I wanna see.
Can someone make a movie about how Obama won the presidency by promising change and then after being elected turned out to be even worse than Bush?
I bet you 16 Trillion dollars it's not fiction!
Did your mother have any children that lived?
When you throw a bomb like that you should have the balls to back it up with something substantive, lady.
Joe seems to be in that small circle of ultra conservatives who'll say anything negative about President Obama and who think that they're making an impression on people. The impression is that "Joe" pays no attention to history or the facts. In short, no one could be as bad a president as George W. Bush!
Yes, someone should!!! Only...that hasnt happened so what would be the point?? Try again. Being clever and funny takes time.
He's right. Obama has tripled the amount of drone strikes in Pakistan, sold bunker busting bombs to Israel (Bush refused to do so), invaded Libya, sent troops to Chad, authorized the assassination of US citizens without trial, renewed the Patriot act, last time I checked Guantanamo is still in operation and on and on. These are FACTS. All you Obama worshippers have your heads firmly in the sand.
Reply to Joe: Hon, you gotta math problem? Bush's wars cost us 3 trillion dollars, plus interest on the loan from China, plus continuing care for our wounded soldiers. Obama made a speech when he was a senator against going to war in Iraq and Afghanistan. He said to just go after Osama bin Laden, and he did it! Give him some credit. Mr. Bush is a good man, but his wars are a big reason for the mess we are in. Obama had done his best to clean up a mess he didn't make.
Obama just signed into legislation a law that will allow him at his sole discretion the authority to arrest anyone, anywhere, US citizen or not, and indefinitely detain them in a military prison.
We are now at the stage that Germany was prior to WWII. Sieg Heil!
I think she eats doooodie.
I like Julianne Moore – didn't anyone see her on 30 Rock? She can do some great accents.
Game Change is an appropriate name for this movie. When they put Palin on the ticket, it did change the race. They got whipped in the election. Biggest mistake the republicans ever made was putting an idiot like Palin on the ticket.
This women isn't even qualified to be a Mother, let alone a vice president. If McCain would have dropped dead, she would have been president. How many wars would you like to be in? Thank God the American voters were smarter than that! Happy Holidays!
Christianity is a cult
...and you're a troll.
As are all religions............
They should've ask the person who made the guiness book of world records as the oldest man to play McCain. Ed Harris is too young for the role. Also, I didn't know Julianne Moore did so well playing comedic roles.
LoJenk is a Laminite. A dirty anti LDS laminite.
LoJenk always has to ruin everythong with their crappy videos. LoJenk suuuuuuuuckz.
Was Julianne Moore asked to get a lobotomy, in order to portray $arah Palin properly?
My big one is pre-pregnancy fitness. I had lost about 45 lbs here & there in 2008 & 2009. I felt great I felt the htasehielt I had felt in a long time, and I felt comfortable in my own skin. Then I gained it allllll back when I was pregnant. Some of it was because of complications & bedrest some of it was first time pregnancy stupidity & eating for 20 instead of 2 (and choosing potato chips & Reese's pieces instead of healthier options). I've already lost about 10 lbs, and now that the holidays are over (well, almost) it's time to focus! I joined a gym yesterday & went for the first time tonight. JoJo & MoMo's upcoming nuptials (I felt so eck at Miah & Teresa's wedding) & our trip to Hawaii next Sept (shorts, beachwear dear God, NO!!) are proving to be some good motivation!! Also, I want to take more pictures and my camera phone does not count
It looks Julianne Moore doing a Tina Fey impersanation of Sarah Palin. Maybe it's just me ? anyone else agree?
Just you. And she's doing an "impression" of her, not an impersonation, nor an "impersanation" as you spell it.
Is this an example of the "post-racial" hope and change we were promised?
Can anyone post hateful trash or is lojenk the resident bigot?
She is just a dirty Laminite.
Kardashian / Lohan 2012!!
It's spelled Lamanite. Have you ever read the Book of Mormon?
Who Laminited here?
Hi Lisa, Here is one more As I Live and Breathe LOL! You will be missed by QVC and all of it's vierews, who tuned in to see your informative, honest (and fun) presentations on air.
