Game Change casting
HBO is continuing to cast its planned adaptation of Game Change, the Heilemann/Halperin bestseller about the 2008 presidential primaries and general election. So far only people associated with the McCain campaign have been cast, including Ed Harris as John McCain and Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin.
I'm a little worried that Danny Strong is writing the adaptation. Game Change, I thought, was a pretty fair insightful look at the 2008 craziness. I'm worried he will just turn into a Democrats-are-heroes/Republicans-are-villains the same way he almost ruined Recount. About two-thirds of the book dealt with Hillary-Obama.
