‘Game Change’ Trailer Teases Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin

When HBO wanted to create an adaptation of the best-selling book “Game Change,” about the 2008 presidential race between John McCain and Barack Obama, they picked up the phone and called Jay Roach – the director behind Austin Powers and The Fockers who also delivered them the television movie Recount. Now, Roach has covered, semi-fictionally, politics in 2000 and in 2008.

Slog through the dialogue between Woody Harrelson as Steve Schmidt (the Republican strategist) and Ed Harris as McCain, and you’ll be rewarded briefly with who will inevitably be the real star of the show, Julianne Moore slingin’ a down home twang as Sarah Palin.

The question is this: with so much going on socially and economically, are we really interested in going back in time to examine a reality television star?

And how will film fan Meghan McCain feel about seeing herself portrayed on screen?

And what do you think?!
