Julianne Moore Premieres "Game Change" in NYC
Supporting her latest film, Julianne Moore was spotted at the New York City premiere of "Game Change"on Wednesday night (March 7).
The former "As The World Turns" soap actress wore a beautiful black and white gown to the red carpet event at the Ziegfeld Theatre.
In "Game Change", the 51-year-old actress plays Sarah Palin during John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign. The HBO picture follows the duo to their ultimate defeat in the general election.
In a recent interview with GMA News, Moore talked about the responsibility of portraying Palin saying, "I've never played a living figure, and the responsibility of that is enormous. She's extremely well-known and still very present. She's a correspondent on Fox. I certainly felt a real responsibility not to do anything that was not corroborated by the writer."
"Game Change" makes its debut on HBO on March 10th.
She’s never been one to shy away from a challenge, and Julianne Moore is the spitting image of Sarah Palin in “Game Change.”
The “Boogie Nights” actress paid a visit to “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” on Tuesday night (March 6) where she about her experience with the gig.
Julianne shared, "We were careful to be as balanced as possible in our portrayal,” noting that Palin is such a polarizing character in today’s political and pop cultural landscape.
"This is less of a story about Sarah Palin than it is those 60 days between her pick and the loss. We're really trying to tell that story. And it really is: How do we choose our leaders? Why is it we're so drawn to magnetism, charisma, good looks, all those things that movie stars have. Do our leaders need to have those too?"
As for mastering Palin’s accent, Moore commented, "She speaks most like her father, so it seems to be based on the Idaho accent, but then she even takes it further, so it seems to be her own particular way of speaking."
