Ed Harris is set to play US presidential candidate Senator John McCain in the forthcoming film Game Change, according to reports.

The four-times Oscar nominated actor will star opposite Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin in the HBO movie, which Tom Hanks is helping to produce, Deadline said.

The flick tracks the senator's 2008 presidential campaign, from his selection of Alaska governor Palin as his running mate to their defeat to Barack Obama in the US elections.

The film will be directed by Jay Roach, based on the bestselling book Game Change, by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin.

A Beautiful Mind star Ed has played a presidential candidate before - in the 1992 comedy Running Mates, co-starring Diane Keaton.
