Julianne Moore to Play Sarah Palin? You Betcha

by Jean Bentley, posted Mar 9th 2011 5:00PM
Julianne MooreJulianne Moore will have to master another very distinct accent for her next TV role: The Oscar-nominated actress has been cast as none other than Sarah Palin in HBO's movie about the 2008 presidential election, 'Game Change.'

Based on the book of the same name, the movie will chronicle John McCain's failed 2008 White House bid. Moore is set to star as former-Alaska-governor-turned-McCain-running-mate Palin, Entertainment Weekly reports.

The project comes from director Jay Roach and writer Danny Strong, who worked on the network's 'Recount,' about the 2000 election. That film won a Golden Globe and three Emmys.

Moore's last TV appearance was her arc last season as Jack Donaghy's lost Boston love, Nancy Donovan, who spoke with an ultra-thick Bahhhston accent.

Tell us: What do you think of Moore's casting?

Let me preface by saying that I am a member of theSierra Club, NPCA and Waterkeepere Alliance so I have good liberal credentials. But I am so tired of extremist politics both right and left. Nothing is accomplished and the rigtht and left are so incredibly phony and crazy that they virtually the same thing. So now we are going to have another political movie meant to sway people's opinion based on acting. Doesn't Palin damage herself, why do we have to have political art to try to press images into people's minds about people. As liberals we are shrinking and our views are distorted by left wing radicals who embody nothing much more than hate. Free speech is only for us everyone else must be shouted down. During the campaign she was weak but the press made her a strong image by bashing her for not her views, but her gender which of course came to mean she was stupid, a stupid woman. Was not Oliver Stone avaiable for this hatchet job? When President Obama said to tone down the rhetoric he really meant for all of us, but many of my friends thought he only meant the political right. We are so creepy these days, WE are the ones who are growing the conservative movement. We discredit ourselves with this kind of stuff, just as NPR did not really need any help discrediting itself did they? The only needed to be shown for what they were doing and what the really believed while they told the public they were not biased or hateful. This is another piece of political crap from Hollywodd that will set us back another decade. Please stop thnking that the America people are stupid and can have this kind of stuff shoved at them. If it was not for the mean spirited campaign against Palin should would have faded after the election. But nope, we made her this large and more liberals phonies are make her even bigger to the American people. Civility! Remember? Not more viscious propaganda. Think I am wrong? Just take the time to read the postings attached to this article. Feel comfortable with that stuff?

Go to any msjor zoo and go to the PRIMATE CAGE, I'm sure one of these caged creatures would make a good Sara Palin. Although the zoo creature would have a greater intelligence than the make believe governor,

What no one has a clue of is that Perception of Governance is all that is needed to allow a Country to be run by anyone, regardless of apparent qualification in the intellectual prowess arena. Sarah Palin is an astounding protrayal of a person with character, integrity, determination, skill, charisma. What she may lack in details, of the global map of intellectual skills regarding running a Country, she more than makes up for by knowing HOW to sequester the correct people & information to accomplish any relevant task. The secret to running a Government lies not in intellectual superiority, but rather the skill to know who to access for appropriate answers in a timely fashion. Also the one attribute she commands over all other potential candidates is her ability to pay attention to the issue at hand and resolve it favorably for ALL, regardless of apparent roadblocks on the way. Yes the sex appeal has a lot to do with that as well. Julianne Moore has EVERY one of Sarah's attributes and the talent to protray them in an accurate depiction on screen.
These are two of my favorite women on the planet, both multi-talented in a wide range of aspects.

Hello Mark

Palin is not smart enough to be President. You must have an Ivy league education. Every President since
Reagan is Ivy League educated. Why else would the U.S. be the best its' ever been if not for these bastions
of ethics, morals, equity and fair play !

Julian more is one of the more tallented American Actress of today, I am sure she will do a good job in protraying Sarah Palin, my wory is they may try to pander to the mean spirit of this woman and her supports and give her a break as the fraud she is. I am sure Mrs. Palin will have some control of how she appears, which would not do anything justice except the far right wing of the political spectrum; which would distort the truth of the latest voice of hate, and stupidity.

Julianne Moore is very talented as an actress. I'm just disappointed she would lend her talent to just another propoganda piece from Hollywood. Americans enjoy film for entertainment and to be moved emotionally, not to be be brainwashed into thinking the same political thoughts and ideas as Hollywood. Maybe the producers should do an unflattering picture about one of their own for a change, i.e. Lindsey Lohan, Charlie Sheen, Britney Spears, etc. The list of dysfunctional, drug-induced folks in the entertainment industry is too long to list, but we won't be seeing many movies about them on HBO, will we? The Hollywood set is good at pointing the finger at others (lawyers, clergy, corporate executives, politicians)....maybe they should look in the mirror once in a while at those in their own back yard.
