Celluloid heroines

Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin?

Celluloid heroines

Julianne Moore, who is absolutely fabulous, will portray Sarah Palin, who absolutely isn’t, in an HBO film called Game Change.

I worship Moore and her morph-abilities, which rival those of Meryl Streep -- whose next role, BTW, is Dame Margaret Thatcher. (Who's next? Helen Mirren as Michelle Bachmann?) 

I’m holding my applause re Moore’s latest choice of roles.

My cher Julianne usually relishes a challenge, but it can’t be much of a professional stretch for an actress to play another actress (see: Mommie Dearest).

Besides, the universe simply doesn’t have room for yet another fictional, fanciful, farcical character named Sarah Palin.
