    Wtf!? Says:


    Omg, I burst out laughing. Who’s going to play Obama? Will Smith? Obama’s daughters will be played by Willow Smith and uh….Willow Smith thanks to nepotism. Tom Cruise can totally master Joe Biden’s cheesy grin. John Voight obviously loves him some douches like John McCain so hey, let’s throw him in there too. And last but not least, John Boehner can be played by an Oompa Loompa.

    Yeah, I like that casting…I smell Oscar ! Ha!

    Well I didnt think it would work when I heard this but if you look at their faces they are actually very similar so if she dyes her hair, cuts bangs, wears glasses and gets that accent down I think she’ll be perfect!

    Julianne Moore is such a talented actress, able to reach into and create really three-dimensional characters….this is a waste of her talent. Sarah Palin is the embodiment of one-dimensional. She’s completely transparent in her silly motivations, just an incredibly arrogant, ignorant and foolish woman.

    Don’t really know why they are bothering with a movie on this subject, Palin couldn’t be more irrelevant.

    HBO is a step up for moore, she needs to be on the “lifetime” channel.

    Hope Julianne doesn’t go overboard and get a lobotomy to prep for playing that ditz.

    sillyme Says:

    Ah, yes, another hatchet jobof a conservative from the lefties. Unfortunately, Palin doesn’t have the family connections (i.e., Kennedy name) to pull a movie because it’s negative. Only the Democrats have that kind of power. Lemme guess…Arsenio Hall for Obama. And,for Michelle…is Aunt Thelma from the Jeffersons still around?

    Nice to see you consider Beyonce, on of the most beautiful singers fat. LMAO. No matter what you baggers say, your lies don’t come true. Wonder what you have to say for Sarah Palin’s flabby arms and cankles since you’re so shallow.

    Julianne is going to have lots of fun playing Sarah. Julianne is a strong liberal and would love the chance to portray someone that she hates.

    Julianne is facing the same challenge in acting skill as Sean Penn was facing in “I Am Sam”.

    Thomas Chi Says:

    Julianne Moore is brilliant. I thought the producers would try to cast a comedian, but instead the casting directors found talent. Sarah Palin should be worried. Sarah Palin will not be President of the United States if Julianne Moore can add truth to her performance as Palin.
