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?
