Wizards must work in Hollywood to have been able to successfully transform Julianne Moore into Sarah Palin for the new HBO film Game Change. The movie is based on the behind the scenes book by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin's of the 2008 presidential race. The film stars Woody Harrelson as McCain's advisor, Steve Schmidt, and focuses on the Sarah Palin and John McCain campaign. "We desperately need a game-changing pick, and none of these middle-aged white guys are game changers," Schmidt says in the teaser.
The teaser shows Moore as Palin walking out on stage to announce her candidacy for vice president. You don't get to see much of Moore's impersonation from the trailer but from the few lines uttered it sounds like the four-time Oscar nominee has got that Alaskan twang down. A new Game Change trailer will be released in March. It will be telling to see how Moore holds up, especially when comedian Tina Fey has so far got the Palin look and voice on lockdown.
