To the surprise of absolutely no one, many of the people who are portrayed in HBO’s Game Change are none too thrilled with the political drama based off John Heilemann and Mark Halperin’s page-turning bestseller. Especially not former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
Palin, who is played by Oscar-nominee Julianne Moore (pictured)
in the HBO movie, is reportedly portrayed as unstable, unprepared and
ill-informed on world affairs and basic world history. Of course, by
Palin’s account she’ll never actually see it to find out if that’s true.
The former Alaskan governor told Fox News
last week that she is not going to see the movie (which chronicles her
entry into the 2008 Presidential campaign with John McCain at the hand
of campaign strategist Steve Schmidt, played by Woody Harrelson) and
noted that neither is “the good Senator John McCain.”
While McCain stated back in March that he wouldn’t be tuning in for the film, he called Oscar nominee Ed Harris, who plays him in the film, “a great actor” during a chat with Fox News and noted “I’ve been made very aware about its depiction of me, and it is what it is.”
