Julianne Moore To Play Sarah Palin In HBO Film

Moore Palin casting

Julianne Moore has signed on to play Sarah Palin in HBO Films' upcoming adaptation of the best selling book Game Change by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin.

We can't complain, considering the four-time Academy Award nominee is phenomenal in every thing she does, but we do have one question on our mind…

Why not Tina Fey?!

Okay, okay, we're sure she is a busy with 30 Rock, but c'mon…she is spot on.

Jay Roach will direct the film from a script written by Danny Strong, who previously collaborated together on the Emmy winning political HBO film Recount.

Sounds like this film has some big guns behind it! We can't wait to hear the rest of the casting announcements!

Do U think Julianne Moore is a good choice to play the former Alaskan Governor?

    Perez, I really don't think people would take Tina Fey seriously playing her in a film role since she did her on SNL. But she was great on SNL!!! Moore may not be my first choice but I think she'll pull it off.

  2. 2

    My first question would be do you think her trashy book should be turned into a movie? No!!!!!!!!!

    Julianne Moore is brilliant. I thought the producers would try to cast a comedian, but instead the casting directors found talent.

    Julianne Moore is brilliant. I thought the producers would try to cast a comedian, but instead the casting directors found talent. Sarah Palin should be worried. Sarah Palin will not be President of the United States if Julianne Moore can add truth to her performance as Palin.

    Tina Fey is a comedian, dumb ass. She is not a serious actor. Julianne will bring reality to the role, not over-the-top histironics.

    what sarah palin needs to do is pack up her shit, along with her used to be knocked up ugly fat teenager and get the fuck out of my state. those racist pigs are not welcome in arizona. the less white trash pigs in our state the better it will be. and if this bitch runs for president then america will be screwed big time. everyone is gonna suffer. just watch. and her book is stupid as hell. lol what a big joke. she needs to go back to where she came from. and just get the fuck out of my state you racist pig. and who the fuck is julianne moore? yeah, what a wonderful actress. because everyone knows who she is (sarcasm included). lol NOT. they picked a shitty wannabe actress to play and portray a racist pig. sarah palin can burn in hell along with her ugly fat ass daughter. lol well….at least that's where their going when they both die. haha

    It's better that Julianne Moore play Palin — were it Tina Fey, the whole movie would be reduced to a long SNL skit. Moore will give the project greater credibility and get us beyond the silliness of SNL to the genuine horror that is Palin.

    hmmm, so this film will probably be released just in time for the 2012 election trail…

    It is the opportunity of a lifetime for an actor to portray the mentally challenged & show their true Oscar worth. Just ask Sean Penn (I Am Sam) or Billy Bob Thornton (Slingblade). Julianne Moore portraying a mental defective should definitely be Oscar-worthy. Kudos Julianne!

    they should get lisa ann (google her up)

    Re: white_is_ugly – are you serious? Your have to the dumbest blogger. What are you 12? Your not even worth the come back that I have for you and your lame comments. DO you really want me to comment? MMm racist… You have no evidence of SArah being a racist….but we have SO MANY examples of Obama……you sad child. go back home and keep babysitting.

  18. 18

    Re: white_is_ugly – If you don't know who julianne moore is you are an idiot. she has been nominated for 4 OSCARS. shes been in over 5o feature films including this past years the kids are all right. also a single man im not there the big lebowski and magnolia.
    as for your palin comments, they may have a foundation, but you are clearly too immature or mentally disturbed to take seriously.

    Re: manymoms – the only people who think obama is a racist, are racist white people. people who are afraid of the black man and in power. suck it up kiddo, and expect 4 more years

    Many here are assuming the film is all about $creech. She is just one of the characters to be portrayed in the failed McCain\Palin campaign of 2008.
    It was no laughing matter. I know the producers won't address "THE WILD RIDE", the death of Dar Miller, the silence of CBJ, AIP affiliations, etc.

  22. 22

    NO nobody can do it like Tina! I don't care if she's a comedian- she is Sarah Palin!

  23. 23

    Re: manymoms – Aha! The bots are active! You are the only one to bring up PRESIDENT OBAMA'S name. Tell me, what are your thoughts about THE WILD RIDE? Pick any version; they are all Sarah originals as written in her books and recorded on Youtube in her words for posterity. Did the Pac refund your money yet?

  24. 24

    Julianne and Tina are both amazing at their acting craft, but I JM has much more experience in drama's.

  25. 25

    Re: HellenKiller – Are you delusional or just High? Obama and his chimp wife are so racist,, I guess Jeremiah wright isn't racist either,,I am going to go with you are just plain dumb, especially if you think the communist in chief will be around for another 4 years.
