Game Change Shooting in NM

Here's something for political junkies and film buffs.

The state Film Office just announced that the HBO film Game Change will shoot in New Mexico later this month. The news release doesn't say what part of the state.

 The story, based on the book by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin,  follows John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign, from his selection of Sarah Palin as his running mate through election day. It stars Julianne Moore, (no, not Tina Fey), Ed Harris and Woody Harrelson.

The production began principal photography in Maryland earlier this spring.

Is that Ed Harris or McCain in Albuquerque?
