No one doubted that Julianne Moore would nail the physical details playing Sarah Palin in Game Change, about the Alaska governor's astonishing explosion on the political scene in 2008 as John McCain’s running mate.

So, yes, she does "the voice," which is flat yet nasal. But that's just the starting point. Moore is an unusual actress: At her best – and she is here – she's completely empathetic but also mysteriously remote. Her Palin from moment to moment is absolutely real – but always open to interpretation.

Julianne Moore Performs as Sarah Palin in Game Change Trailer

Originally posted 12/22/2011 08:45AM

We knew she had perfected Sarah Palin's look. Now, in the first Game Change trailer, we see that Julianne Moore sounds just like the Alaskan politician, too.

Moore, 51, has just one line in the trailer – in which she accepts the Republican nomination for vice president in 2008 – but she delivers it in the classic Palin voice, one previously imitated to perfection by Tina Fey.

The movie, coming to HBO in March, also stars Ed Harris as John McCain and Woody Harrelson as his campaign manager.
