Moore (Boogie Nights, Eagle Eye) will take the sure-to-be-buzzed-about role of the Alaska Governor and vice presidential nominee in the HBO film.

Game Change is directed by Jay Roach and written by Danny Strong, who previously teamed for HBO’s docudrama on the 2000 election drama, Recount. It’s based on the book by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin following John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign.

What do you think, will Moore make a convincing Palin?
