Bristol Palin - Bristol Palin Role In 'Game Change' Is Cast

Bristol Palin, the daughter of Republican politician Sarah Palin, will be portrayed by the actress Melissa Farman in Hbo's forthcoming movie 'Game Change', according to the Hollywood Reporter. The character of Bristol Palin is expected to feature heavily in the project, with the plot focusing on her mother's role in the 2008 Presidential Elections.
Farman's previous credits include an appearance on 'Lost', 'Law & Order: Special Victims Unit' in 2009 and a role in the television movie 'Temple Grandin' with Claire Danes. She also featured in Ncis earlier this year and recently finished filming the movie 'The Moth Diaries'. Other actors to join the cast of the Hbo project include Larry Sullivan, who has been cast as Sarah Palin's deputy chief of staff Chris Edwards. Jamey Sheridan will play Senator John Mccain's speechwriter and senior campaign advisor Mark Salter. 'Game Change' is based on the bestselling book by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin. It will be directed by Jay Roach and written by Danny Strong, who previously worked together on Hbo's election-themed film 'Recount'.
The Hollywood actress Julianne Moore has already been cast as Bristol Palin's mother Sarah Palin and Ed Harris will portray John Mccain. The role of President Barack Obama is yet to be cast. Filming is expected to get underway shortly, with a release date set for late 2011.
