Julianne Moore Portrays Sarah Palin's Rise and Near Demise

Originally posted 02/01/2012 01:45PM



Get ready to see Sarah Palin nearly unravel.

In HBO's Game Change, which dramatizes John McCain's presidential campaign and what happened after he picked Sarah Palin to be his running mate, Julianne Moore plays the Alaska politician as fierce and highly flawed.

"I miss my baby," Moore says as demoralized Palin in a new trailer for the TV movie, which premieres March 10 at 9 p.m.

"She's on the verge of a complete nervous breakdown," says Woody Harrelson, who plays McCain's adviser Steve Schmidt.

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.

Not so, insists the actress.

"I never feel confident!" the star, 50, tells Health magazine. "I don’t know that there's anybody who does. I mean, you don't look around the red carpet thinking, 'There's a lot of confident people out here.'"

Donning the trademark eyeglasses and up 'do, Julianne Moore is proving she’s more than all right as former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

The The Kids Are All Right actress, 50, has transformed herself into the politician, 47, for the new HBO film, Game Change, which begins production Wednesday.

Costarring Ed Harris as John McCain, the film follows the Arizona U.S. Senator's 2008 presidential campaign from his selection of Palin as a running mate to their defeat in the general election. Woody Harrelson portrays Steve Schmidt, McCain's senior advisor. Lost's Melissa Farman has also been cast as Bristol Palin.

The film, directed by Jay Roach and written by Danny Strong, is based on the bestselling book of the same name. Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman are executive producers.

Balancing motherhood and a sex life is no simple task for Julianne Moore.

"I think [to feel sexy,] you need to be away from your children," the actress, 50, told Tom Ford when he interviewed her for March's InStyle cover story. "Doing the mommy stuff does sort of squash that area of your life.

Getting married to Bart Freundlich was never a priority for Julianne Moore, until she thought about how their kids would feel about it.

"The only reason I got married in 2003 was for my children," the actress, 50, tells the British newspaper the Guardian. "I had a therapist who said marriage is really a container for a family, and that made sense to me."

Moore and Freundlich had already been together for years and had two young kids – Caleb, now 13, and Liv, 8 – by the time they wed.

POLL: Who Was Snubbed Most by the Oscars? | Andrew Garfield, Julianne Moore, Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, Ryan Gosling

Who Was Snubbed Most by the Oscars?

Originally posted 01/25/2011 11:15AM

It's the downside of the Oscar nominations – the disappointment felt by those who were overlooked despite critically acclaimed performances.

This year is no different, with five actors and actresses in particular notably missing from the list of nominees – Andrew Garfield (The Social Network); Ryan Gosling (Blue Valentine); Mila Kunis (Black Swan); Julianne Moore (The Kids Are All Right); and Mark Wahlberg (The Fighter).

Interestingly, all five saw a costar (or in Wahlberg's case, three costars) earn a nomination: Michelle Williams (Blue Valentine); Natalie Portman (Black Swan); Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network); Annette Bening (The Kids Are All Right); and Amy Adams, Christian Bale and Melissa Leo (all for The Fighter).

So, tell us who was most overlooked?
