I've been pretty geeked about HBO Films' adaptation of John Heilemann's Game Change since they first released photos of Julianne Moore in make-up, and the fact that it's being made by the same people who made Recount just pushes me over the edge into William Kristol-level slathering.
The first trailer is finally out. Ed Harris looks passable as John McCain, and Woody Harrelson is pretty convincing as a guy with no hair (probably either senior McCain campaign advisor Steve Schmidt or Gordon from Sesame Street, though I'm leaning toward Schmidt). But Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin…
Do they give out Academy Awards for one line spoken in the trailer for a made-for-TV movie? 'Cause I think they might want to consider it.
