Julianne Moore is interviewed in the new issue of Capitol File, and the actress chats about her portrayal of Sarah Palin in the upcoming HBO film, Game Change.
Moore tells the mag, “I basically had two months to prepare, so I cleared my schedule of everything, literally. I cleared everything that didn’t involve my family -- I just let go of it and spent all my time doing research. It was total immersion. The trickiest thing is to take all these physical and vocal characteristics and somehow filter the character’s essence through them. And then you personally have to meet them somewhere, too. There’s this melding that has to happen.”
After checking out the trailer, we think Moore nailed the role of Palin, but that doesn't mean she respects her! “She was not qualified to be vice president," Moore says. "She wasn’t a qualified candidate. I think that became quite evident during the campaign. It was so shocking to me when she resigned the governorship of Alaska when the presidential election was over. I was stunned. I just think that shows such an unbelievable lack of interest in the actual governing.” Ouch!
We can't wait to see this!
