Lionsgate has confirmed a rumor that had been circulating for some time now that four-time Academy Award nominee Julianne Moore has joined the cast for both of the The Hunger Games: Mockingjay movies.
Moore will play President Alma Coin, the leader of the rebellion against the Capitol.
The third and fourth installments of The Hunger Games franchise conclude our heroine Katniss Everdeen's journey as she leads the districts of Panem in a rebellion against President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and the corrupt Capitol.
Francis Lawrence, who helmed the upcoming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, will direct both movies.
Speaking of Catching Fire, it's not too late to enter our sweepstakes for a chance to attend the premiere on November 18 in Los Angeles! Details here.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is slated for release on November 21, 2014 and Part 2 will conclude the franchise on November 20, 2015.
Do you like the casting of Moore as President Coin? Is she the actress you imagined playing the role?

i kinda pictured Joan Allen in the role
I thought they would score a home-run and land Meryl Streep for the part. From what I remember in the books, Coin is a cold and calculative little harpy who is no different than Snow. I think Moore has to dig deep in order to pull this off.

"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
