Moore than we bargained for

Peter Morgan’s 2006 play Frost/Nixon — and, for that matter, the 2008 film version, directed by Ron Howard — starred Michael Sheen, who didn’t look much like David Frost, and Frank Langella, who didn’t look even slightly like Richard Nixon.

So I’m not too concerned that HBO has signed Julianne Moore to play Sarah Palin in a film adaptation of Game Change. Moore doesn’t look too much like Palin, but she does look like this:

And far be it from me to complain. (However, see the POH Diaries for an alternative choice.)

    She is just gorgeous. She’s a favorite in our house.

    They could have grabbed Lisa Ann instead. She’s looks more like Palin and has already portrayed “Serra Paylin” in an two movies and an Eminem video.

    Ms Moore is a classic beauty, an ideal. It’s not just her face architecture but figure, movement and demeanor.
    I have read her interview to Town and Country mag and was impressed with her seemingly easy carrying herself, her combination of refined complexity and unsnobbishness, her “born with it” unconcern with her age.
    I’m a bit surprised she let herself to get sucked into a politically-charged project.

    Only a moron with dust for brains and bottle glass shards for eyes can can find similarity Between Sarah Palin and a cheap two-bit slut of a blow-up girl like LisaAWhatsHerName.
