ed harris to play john mccain in hbo film

Earlier this month, we were excited to learn that Tina Fey Julianne Moore had signed on to play Sarah Palin in HBO Films' upcoming adaptation of the best selling book Game Change by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin.

Now, we've learned about another addition to the cast of the film based on the 2008 general election: Ed Harris as John McCain!

This took us a minute to process, but now we're thinking he's a great choice!

We're not sure who else would have been good for this part…unless they could get John McCain to play himself! He's been pret-ty amusing on SNL, so maybe that could have worked? Ha!

We think Ed will do a great job, though. After his performances in films like Gone Baby Gone, A History of Violence, The Rock, and A Beautiful Mind, we're more than confident in his acting abilities.

Do U think Ed Harris is a good choice for John McCain?

    You mean John McCain, the crappiest Republican candidate, hand picked by the Liberal media, who planned and lead the ruinuously, shitty campaign against BamBam. That John McCain?

    PeeWee Herman cold play McCain for all I care.
    McCain's Liberal policies helped get America where we are now…stuck with Bozo.

    Ruby could play his daughter, Meghan.

    You're so right, Col. Tigh, looks just like McCain.

    PeeWee Herman would be great for The Bamster, with just a little beige makeup. I can see it now.

    Perez, after seeing you as a dancing Black Swan, you should audition for the part of skanky Brizdull.

    Yes, agreed, good choice. He's always so confident in his roles that I hope he can also master that haunted look in the eyes that John sometimes wears, which I attribute to his time as a POW.

    Initially I was very impressed with Megan McCain. I read her book, which I found to be entertaining, if not especially brilliant, but now she disses the authors and creators of this new take on the election. I couldn't be more dissapointed. She dragged the former vp candidate and former first lady through the mud with great gusto. Now the shoe is on the other foot. Now it appears that what she submitted as a work of fiction, may be just that a total misrepresentation of events. Megan, dear, either own the words you spout or shut the hell up. Whoring for a dollar does no one any good. Looking forward to seeing my "thinking woman's" sex symbol, Ed Harris portray Sen McCain.
