Stage and screen stars Ed Harris and Julianne Moore will play politicians John McCain and Sarah Palin in the HBO movie Game Change, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The film, by Jay Roach, is about the 2008 presidential election, and has been adapted from the behind-the-scenes book written by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann.

Harris starred onstage in Neil LaBute's Wrecks. Moore has appeared on stage in The Vertical Hour on Broadway and Vanya on 42nd Street. She is also the author of the children's book Freckleface Strawberry, which has been adapted into a musical that continues to run at New World Stages.
