Ed Harris to Play John McCain in HBO Adaptation of 2008 GOP Presidential Duel

Mar 24, 2011

  • Who’s ready to re-live the 2008 GOP showdown between John McCain and Sarah Palin? HBO has named the main players in their telefilm Game Change to be directed by Jay Roach (he’s the guy who directed the first two Fockers and Austin Powers movies) and written by Danny Strong. The two collaborated in 2008 for the Emmy Award winning HBO movie Recount. So the big question is who is playing McCain and Palin? Julianne Moore signed on a while back to play the former Alaska governor and word is that Ed Harris has signed on to play Arizona senator McCain. No word if the script will include eventual President Obama, but the story will be adapted from John Heilemann and Mark Halperin’s book by the same name. So are you interested in checking this out or are you over the political circus of 2008? --Derrick Deane
