OTRC: Ed Harris to play John McCain in HBO's 'Game Changer' - What do you think?

Ed Harris is set to play Arizona Senator John McCain in the upcoming HBO film about the 2008 election called "Game Change," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The film will be based on the book of the same name by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann and will follow John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign from his choice of then Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as a running mate on the Republican ticket to their defeat in the general election.

Harris is joined by Julianne Moore in the film. It was previously announced that the actress will be taking on the role of Palin.

The made-for-TV film is set to be directed by Jay Roach. Roach directed "Meet the Parents" and the HBO film "Recount," which was about the 2000 election and the Florida recount.

Moore guest starred on several episodes of the comedy "30 Rock" in 2010. The show is written by and stars Tina Fey, who famously portrayed Palin in several skits on "Saturday Night Live."
