    'Game Change' Director Jay Roach Returning to HBO With Khrushchev Movie 'K Blows Top'

    "Game Change," the Sarah Palin election film that attracted a lot of attention for both its portrayal of its subject and an eerie central performance from star Julianne Moore, worked well for HBO. So well, in fact, that the network will once again work with director Jay Roach, who hel...
