She is set to play Sarah Palin in the upcoming HBO adaptation of Game Change, but you might remember that Julianne Moore had also been tapped to play Hillary Clinton in The Special Relationship, alongside Dennis Quaid. The role was eventually given Hope Davis after Moore stepped down to do The Kids Are All Right. But BlackBook has discovered the makeup test from the project, which shows Moore in full Clinton mode — and it’s pretty terrifying.

I think it might be the smile that’s giving me the heebie-jeebies. Moore is clearly trying to smile like Clinton…but it’s not happening. It makes the entire look more Stepford than Statehouse.

I guess that scheduling conflict turned out to be a pretty good decision.
