Who Should Play Sarah Palin In The HBO Movie About The Controversial Diva?

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A four-time Oscar nominee has been tapped to play political celebrity Sarah Palin in HBO Films` upcoming adaptation of the bestseller Game Change.

Based on John Heilemann and Mark Halperin`s book, the film centers on insider gossip and inner workings of the `08 McCain and Obama campaigns.

Game Change depicts Palin as a lightning rod, a wild card way out of her depth and unprepared for the national spotlight. So who will portray her?"

Tina Fey is an obvious choice, but the talented actress has already put in too many hours impersonating the former beauty queen. If Fey spends weeks filming the Palin movie there`s a good chance she may go crazy.

There have been a couple of actresses that have played the part of Sarah Palin in adult movies, perhaps one of them could play the reality star. But the typical adult movie star isn`t exactly a gifted thespian, and an adult movie star probably won`t be able to act like she`s a complete nitwit.

Paris Hilton can act dumb because she is dumb, but she`s way too young to portray Palin.

That leaves Julianne Moore she`s only three years older than Palin, and she`s attractive enough to play the role. Moore is a gifted and intelligent actress, and she can play any role, including a celebrity twit.
