The moment Alaska governor Sarah Palin first came to the world stage as John McCain's running mate in the 2008 presidential elections, we knew that her larger-than-life personality would become the stuff of parody and portrayal from years to come. Once we finished laughing at Tina Fey's dead-on impression, the tone turned serious as HBO's 'Game Change' garnered multiple Emmys with Julianne Moore in the lead role.
Now, the original 'Game Change' writers have begun work on a sequel covering the 2012 elections between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, titled 'Double Down: Game Change 2012,' and guess what HBO wants to do with it?
For as much drama as HBO's 'The Newsroom' creates around Jeff Daniels' Will McAvoy and his supporting players, it's easy to forget that the show roots itself in real-life news events by keeping a timeline several months behind our own. Previously, we'd heard of a few guest stars joining the second season of HBO's buzzy Aaron Sorkin drama, but the latest confirms that former Presidential candidate Mitt Romney will play a large role in season 2! So, are you ready to meet our new recurring cast member, a link to the famous one-percenter?
It's sort of sad to think that no matter how much effort the Mitt Romney team puts forth in the current presidential race, there are people (a lot of people) who won't be able to look past Josh Romney's death glare. It's so chilling to look at him up close, but the more you do, the more you'll see the same lack of human emotion that turned 'The Hunger Games' gamekeeper Seneca Crane into the mastermind he was in the film.
We know, we know... We already established the fact that Mitt Romney looks a lot like Jason Beghe in 'Atlas Shrugged,' but this was doppelganger was just too good to pass up. Plus, another debate went down last night, so the occasion seems fitting.
Present America could use a movie like 'Atlas Shrugged: Part II' -- the story of a society on the brink of economic collapse -- since everyone's focusing heavily on the upcoming presidential election and where each candidate stands on this issue in particular. However, do you think the folks behind the scenes were trying to make a political statement with portraying actor Jason Berghe as a Mitt Romney look alike?
