Here’s a Picture of Julianne Moore as Hillary Clinton

The Special Relationship, a film about the ties that bound former US President Bill Clinton to former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, first aired on HBO last May. Michael Sheen played Blair, Dennis Quaid played Slick Willie, and Hope Davis was his wife, Hillary. But before Davis was cast in the role, recent BlackBook cover girl Julianne Moore was meant to portray the onetime First Lady.

Moore backed out due to scheduling conflicts with the production of The Kids Are All Right. Somehow, while looking at the portfolios of makeup artists, I came across this gem of a picture: Moore as Clinton in a makeup test for the film. Moore will get her second chance at playing a political powerhouse for HBO when she takes on the role of Sarah Palin in Game Change, later this year. No word on whether she’ll still have time for a tuna burger at Café Cluny.
