It never ceases to amaze us how an actor can mold themselves into looking and acting and being just like someone else, and Julianne Moore has done exactly for HBO‘s upcoming Sarah Palin movie Game Change.
Yes, yes — we hear you. No one will ever do a better Palin than Tina Fey. But consider this: the movie doesn’t come out until March 2012, and already people are talking about how perfectly Moore has nailed everything from Palin’s facial expression to the cadence of her speech. Most of this based on the 50-second teaser trailer for the film HBO released this week — over half of which is taken up by shots of the back of Moore’s prefectly Palin-ized head. Which means Moore made a pretty convincing Palin in like 7 seconds, tops.
Don’t believe us? Check out the trailer below. And just for comparison’s sake, we’ve included Palin’s appearance on SNL from the 2008 election under that.
