Ed Harris playing John McCain. Makes sense. They have physical similarities, but beyond that, Ed Harris can play “quiet rage” quite well. Just look at A History of Violence. It could just as easily have been A History of Violence: The John McCain story. Dude is salty as hell.
Harris’s McCain is joining Julianne Moore‘s Sarah Palin in the political jambaroo known as Game Change. Game Change tells the story of McCain’s political campaign and how everything changed once he brought on a lady that could see Russia from her house. The film is directed by Jay Roach, who flexed his political-retelling muscle with Recount, the story of the 2000 election fiasco.
Congrats to Ed Harris for taking on a role that actually requires him to look balder. Big ups, Eddie. (The Wrap)
