The first look at Ed Harris as John McCain in "Game Change" has been debuted via Entertainment Weekly. Wearing a suit and sporting white hair-do, the "Gone Baby Gone" actor makes a convincing impersonation of the former presidential candidate.
Previously, HBO has debuted a photo of Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin in the TV movie. The 50-year-old actress wears the trademark eyeglasses and the hair-do to resemble the former Alaska Governor and vice presidential candidate.
Based on John Heilemann and Mark Halperin's bestselling book of the same name, "Game Change" will revolve around McCain's 2008 presidential campaign, from his controversial selection of Palin as his running mate to their ultimate defeat in the general election.
Serving behind the lens is Jay Roach with the script provided by Danny Strong. The two have collaborated for HBO's Emmy-winning film "Recount". Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman, meanwhile, are serving as executive producers.
Melissa Farman and Justin Gaston are cast as Sarah Palin's daughter Bristol Palin and the father of Bristol's baby, Levi Johnston, respectively. Other supporting actors include Larry Sullivan, Jamey Sheridan and Ron Livingston.
