Star of "Lost" and "NCIS" Melissa Farman has been cast to play Bristol Palin in the HBO movie "Game Change".

Writing on the Daily Beast, Meghan McCain said "I expect my family and Sarah Palin to be nothing short of crucified."

Previously Sarah Palin said "I think I'll just grit my teeth and bear whatever comes what may with that movie."

The movie is based on a book by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann and chronicles the 2008 Presidential election. It focuses on the insider secrets and John McCain's doomed campaign.

Although Farman is a relative newcomer she also starred in the Emmy Award-winning HBO movie "Temple Grandin" in 2010. She will play Sarah Palin's pregnant teenage daughter in the movie.

So far Ed Harris has been cast as John McCain and Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin. Larry Sullivan of "CSI" fame will play Palin's aide Chris Edwards while Jamey Sheridan will play McCain's speechwriter Mark Salter.
