Dick Cheney to Be Subject of HBO Miniseries

Dick Cheney's been out of government for more than two years, but his political afterlife shows no signs of ending: HBO plans a miniseries on the famously abrasive former vice president.

Julianne Moore to Play Sarah Palin: A Casting Choice as Divisive as Palin Herself

Tina Fey may be the most famous Sarah Palin impersonator, but the "30 Rock" star has some new competition.
