Give Me Moore Sarah Palin, please

And you thought Tina Fey looked like the former Alaskan governor and GOP VP candidate.

This is the first photo of four-time Academy Award nominee Julianne Moore as Palin in HBO's upcoming film, Game Change.  Pretty uncanny, isn't it?  Maybe Moore will be crowned an Emmy champ before she gets her due at the Oscars.

I have some trepidations about this film, since the last presidential biopic I saw (Oliver Stone's W.) left a bad taste in my mouth.  Making Moore look exactly like Palin surely will help viewers know what's going on and add to the film's visual accuracy, but there's always the fear of a campy performance waiting in the wings.  Much like Thandie Newton and the over-the-top cast of W., who looked the part but the extent of believability ended there.  But it is HBO after all, so it's got to be good...right?

Here's looking for the first photo of Ed Harris as John McCain.
