Evidently Ed Harris is going to play John McCain in HBO’s adaptation of Game Change. Why they didn’t just cast this guy I’ll never know:

Michael Hogan as Saul Tigh

I'm still not coinvinced they AREN'T the same person...

While we’re on the topic, why are they adapting Game Change into anything at all? I mean, not only did the book lack new facts, but it also lacked original interpretations–I guess people wanting to read about how Hillary Clinton listened too much to Mark Penn would get something out of it, but that’s really all you get. It’s almost too easy to dump on Halperin, but honestly that book was just not that great. Maybe people who paid attention to absolutely nothing during the 2008 race might have gotten something out of it, but I can’t imagine why they’d be buying the book in the first place.
