When Julianne Moore was cast as Sarah Palin in the HBO film Game Change, many wondered if she could pull off the signature Palin look, without resorting to Tina Fey-like mimicry. As it turns out, she really can!

The first image of Moore-as-Palin has been released, and though she doesn't totally look like the former vice presidential candidate and former Alaskan governor, she definitely could pass for her from a distance. Now let's hope Moore doesn't go all 30 Rock with her Alaskan accent. Judging from how she handled her Boston accent on the NBC comedy, hopes should not be raised.
