Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin gives Tina Fey a run for her money, huh? March can’t come soon enough: That’s when HBO Films will debut the movie version of “Game Change” based on a bestselling nonfiction book about the 2008 election. This trailer makes it look as if the book is just about Palin and John McCain, when the actual book is about all the candidates. The trailer probably just focuses on Moore playing Palin because it’s been so talked about. I’m wondering how “Game Change” will handle the late Elizabeth Edwards, who is portrayed in the book as something of a ball-crushing she-beast, and Sleazy McSleazebag John Edwards who was diddling videographer Rielle Hunter on the campaign trailer. Must watch TV, I tell ya. [YouTube: HBO Films] Keep reading »

Julianne Moore To Star In A New “Mad Men”-esque Show

“Dope” is a new television show that sounds like the perfect combination of everything I love—one part “Mad Men,” one part “Breaking Bad,” one part “Bored to Death,” and one part “The Good Wife.” And even better—it will be produced by and star the amazing Julianne Moore. Julianne is developing the show for HBO alongside Todd Haynes, who directed her in “Far From Heaven” (pictured here) and who more recently turned out Kate Winslet in “Mildred Pierce.” Based on the novel by Sara Gran, “Dope” tells the story of a woman in 1950s New York who becomes a private eye, despite her past as a heroin addict. Which sounds pretty juicy to me. And hey, i’s exciting to see a period drama in the works that centers on a female character—and one who is not in a bunny tail or formfitting Pan Am stewardess get-up.

Julianne Moore Says Nailing Sarah Palin’s Accent, Mannerisms Was “Really, Really Hard”

“It was hard—really, really hard … It’s hard to play someone who is very present in people’s minds, who’s on television, who’s very idiosyncratic, I did my best. We’ll see, I hope we pulled it off … [The accent took] practice, an incredible amount of practice. I had to listen to it over and over again. My son was embarrassed because [Palin's speeches were] all that was on my iPod. He said, ‘Where’s your music?’ I erased all my music.”

Julianne Moore talks to MTV News about what it was like playing Sarah Palin in the HBO movie “Game Change.” For some reason, I am picturing her and Tina Fey at a bar, sipping gin and tonics and trading war stories about the complexities of winking correctly and finding the exact right Alaskan lilt.

Why Julianne Moore Won’t Be Getting Plastic Surgery

“My feeling is live and let live. But some of those procedures that make you look younger — I don’t know that they really made anybody look younger. I think most of the time they made you look like you’ve had something done to your face. Even with the laser stuff, the skin becomes so shiny. It’s like nothing sticks to it. It’s just shiny, shiny skin, and it doesn’t have a normal patina, so you’re like, ‘What’s the matter with them?’ Look, it’s hard to age. Let people do what they want to do, but I do think that a new normal sometimes starts to exist where the cosmetic surgery itself starts to look normal, and we lose track of what a real face is like.”

I can sleep easy at night knowing some plastic surgeon’s scalpel will never fiddle with the great beauty that is Julianne Moore. You tell ‘em, Julianne! [Health] Keep reading »
