"Why The Hell Is Sarah Palin On Our Set?"

Julianne Moore will be playing former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin in HBO's upcoming Game Change -- the book about the 2008 presidential election. Money:
Sarah Paulson, who plays Republican strategist Nicole Wallace in the film, says Moore could easily pass for the failed vice presidential candidate.

"I will say there were several times where I'd be standing there on set and she would walk by and I would see her peripherally," Paulson told me while promoting her new awards season favorite, Martha Marcy May Marlene (in theaters now). "I'd take a quick glance and I'd be like, 'Why the hell is Sarah Palin on our set?' It's so weird.

"Julianne Moore doesn't really look like Sarah Palin without all the makeup—but, oh my God!" she added. "She does this amazing thing with her body. Sarah Palin has a very specific way of standing and walking that Julianne does. It's going to blow people's minds."
Cue the Palinite backlash in 3... 2... 1...
