Sarah Palin has been the subject of several spoofs throughout her political career. Tina Fey’s impression of John McCain’s 2008 running mate is easily the most famous, but Julianne Moore could give the SNL alum a run for her money with her performance in Game Change, a new HBO film about the 2008 presidential race.
The Huffington Post reports that the movie is based on the book “Game Change,” by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann. Ed Harris will play John McCain, Woody Harrelson plays adviser Steve Schmidt, and Julianne Moore will step into the boots of Sarah Palin.
Moore didn’t give her opinion on Sarah Palin, but she did say that filming the movie gave her a different perspective of politics in general. Moore told ABC:
“So much is about how do you get on the air, how do you get the most media attention, how do you make the most noise. When, in fact, what we’re all looking for is leadership. We don’t want noise. We want people who are going to take care of us.”
Here’s a look at Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin in Game Change.
The Game Change teaser only gives a glimpse at Moore playing Palin, but she seems to have that folksy Alaskan accent down pretty well. What do you think?
Julianne Moore has the tough task of bring some levity to Sarah Palin’s character, while Tina Fey could just goof around with a silly accent. Still, Fey’s impression is pretty good. Here’s a look at Tina Fey’s impersonation of Sarah Palin?
