Does Julianne Moore Nail Sarah Palin?

You Betcha!

by Marc Malkin

We cannot wait to see Game Change, HBO’s adaptation of the book of the same name about the 2008 presidential election.

Julianne Moore plays Sarah Palin. If what we’ve seen and heard is any indication of things to come, her portrayal is downright freaky.

Sarah Paulson, who plays Republican strategist Nicole Wallace in the film, says Moore could easily pass for the failed vice presidential candidate.

“I will say there were several times where I’d be standing there on set and she would walk by and I would see her peripherally,” Paulson told me while promoting her new awards season favorite, Martha Marcy May Marlene (in theaters now). “I’d take a quick glance and I’d be like, ‘Why the hell is Sarah Palin on our set?’ It’s so weird.

Julianne Moore doesn’t really look like Sarah Palin without all the makeup—but, oh my God!” she added. “She does this amazing thing with her body. Sarah Palin has a very specific way of standing and walking that Julianne does. It’s going to blow people’s minds.”

    It’s hard to imagine that ANYONE can imitate Sarah’s gift for stupidity and viciousness. Julianne Moore must be truly amazing or a closet psychopath.

      I’ll vote for “truly amazing.” She’s an awesome actress who actually does her research brilliantly.

    Oh, does the delicate little, very talented Hollywood starlet pull of the glass jaw / swinging dick of the indescribably self-conscious cringe-worthy audacious loser?

    I would think so, Julianne Moore is actually good at what she does, she does her homework.

    I want to see her act like an ego maniacal bully.

    Then I want that bully exposed as a coward when she tries to get out of the Katie Couric interview by messing up her hair and smearing her makeup en route.

    Then I want to see the coward exposed as a catatonic malingerer when under pressure.

    Anything else is gravy.

    I like Julianne, but I would rather have Tina Fey play Palin this movie.

    I figured Julianne who have to undergo a lobotomy to sound like Palin.
