UPDATE: More casting news below.
The cast of HBO’s movie “Game Change” has added one more key piece to its cast: Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol.
Bristol will be played by Melissa Farman, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Julianne Moore is playing Sarah Palin in the movie about the 2008 presidential campaign, and based on the first photo of Moore from the movie, the makeup, wardrobe and hair departments have done their job well.
“Game Change,” based on John Heilemann and Mark Halperin‘s book, will also star Ed Harris as John McCain and Woody Harrelson as McCain’s campaign adviser Steve Schmidt. The movie is being written by Danny Strong and directed by Jay Roach, who previously collaborated on HBO’s “Recount.”
Additionally, the movie has cast former “Nashville Star” contestant and Miley Cyrus ex-boyfriend Justin Gaston as Bristol’s baby-daddy Levi Johnston, Sarah Paulson as McCain strategist Nicolle Wallace and Peter MacNicol as McCain campaign manager Rick Davis, Deadline reports.
Farman is maybe best-known for playing the young (and pregnant) Danielle Rousseau in several episodes of the time-tripping fifth season of “Lost.” “Game Change” will be her second project with HBO; she also co-starred in “Temple Grandin” last year.
Her other credits include guest spots on “NCIS,” “Law & Order: SVU” and “Cold Case.” Here’s some of her work from “Lost,” as Danielle, Jin (Daniel Dae Kim) and her cohorts come under attack from the smoke monster.
