Drill baby, drill. Recent Oscar snubee Julianne Moore has just been tapped to play Sarah Palin in the upcoming HBO movie Game Change. Insert your expressions of shock here.

The HBO movie -- which is based on the book of the same name by reporters Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, and will follow the sordid and juicy tale of the 2008 presidential election -- has yet to cast Barack Obama, John McCain or Hillary Clinton, meaning the fun here is just beginning.

Meanwhile, here's hoping Moore does better with Palin's Alaskan drawl than she did with the Boston accent that she was forced to affect on 30 Rock. Egad, we're still pulling chowder out of our ears.
